Today’s lesson is sponsored by the letter H. H as in Hosanna? Home? Health? Heaven? Happy? My grandson would add Hudson! In the church calendar this Sunday is the celebration of Palm Sunday.

Zach was telling me the other day that the first couple of weeks at the Gym are particularly busy this time of year but that quickly trails off as people begin to realize the perseverance it takes to retain never mind grow healthy muscle tone.
