This photo is from a lunch I had with University of Georgia Football Coach Mark Richt in July 2010.
Eleven years later and I still remember a story Coach Richt shared during that conversation. Hear more in the video below:
I have so much respect and admiration for Coach Richt – he’s consistent and always has his priorities in the right order. I know that’s especially true now. I’ve admired his firm foundation through his diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease, the storm he’s currently facing.
“Sand works fine when there’s no storm.” That’s one of my favorite lines from 8 Essential Exchanges. It’s true, isn’t it?
We will all eventually face storms. We will confront challenges and have to weather tough seasons. While we always need anchoring, it’s in those moments that we most realize the futility of building on a foundation that is not firm.
Remember: The only sure foundation is found in something and Someone bigger than yourself.
We each need to make the exchange to build our life on a solid rock.
Here’s to making the exchange!
