We had a coach yesterday announce he is going to another school. I wanted to keep a log of what I said to some hurting young men.
1- It is OK to hurt- it is how you respond to the pain that is important
2- We pray for this coach, accept his decision as God's will
3- It does not create anger toward the school that hired him
4- You never know what will turn out to be a blessing
5- Get up, dust off, and get back to work
We closed in prayer- and got back to work
