You Reap What You Sow

I go to church on Sunday mornings and play in an ice hockey league on Sunday nights. Yesterday morning we had a very good sermon on the Biblical principal that you will reap what you sow. I came home, slept through most of the football game on TV and then headed off to my hockey game.

It’s been six months, the team has gone from worst to first place, and here’s a picture for the Michigan Missile… not to be confused in any way with the Russian Rocket…
