      Life is full of tall hills and sucker punches.  Expectations change. Circumstances may dictate digging in and fighting through the suck, because that is what is required of us HIM. Relate this to your marriage, raising kids, workplace, fitness.  It is so important we see things through and FINISH STRONG. We all have limits…if we have reached them…and still need help or encouragement or accountability…REACH OUT to your brothers!!!

    •  MOLESKIN:
      So good to have Outerlooper, Slots, join his brethren this morning.  We put in miles. Ran hills. Mumble-chattered profusely. Except during the sucker punch Indian Run.  Nobody said a word.  It was epic.  Hope Slots learned a valuable lesson, ‘loose lips sink ships’. LOL  We were gonna hit those hill runs regardless. Prayer lifted up for our brother,  Big Perm, who recently  suffered a personal loss.  Proud of the PAX who showed up today to do work and FINISHED STRONG, followed up with some PLC together.

YHC and his Sunday School class took part in Meet Memphis on Saturday – an annual day of service with First Evan’s Memphis Ministries Partners.  Meet Memphis is Cheesesteak’s baby, and he does a great job planning it.  The group spent the day with the congregation at Christ’s Community Church.  During lunch, the pastor of Christ’s Community Church reminded us that our true home is Heaven, and that we are ambassadors for Christ during our time on Earth.

WARM-O-RAMA:

Al Gore until all arrived

THANG: 

  • Slingshot Indian 4 Mile Run:
    • Guy in front set pace.
    • Single file.  After a PAX would lead he would then drop into 2nd when new PAX took lead.  That way the rotation would work and everyone got their turn at least once.
    • (About every 3/4 miles) approach cross street and PAX would fall in and do Squats OYO AMRAP until PAX in rear caught up and automatically assumed the lead and set the new pace.
    • Rinse and repeat.
    • At 2 mile mark, pause for 75 Squats OYO
    • Resume run until ENDEX.

MARY: 

  • N/A

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:

PERSEVERANCE and STRESS

Just because GOD answers your prayers is not time to rest.  His test of endurance is infinite.  Get Right.

MOLESKIN:

  • Old Ballz was not ready for these young whippersnappers.  Been under the weather all week but this was just what YHC needed.  Grateful for the HIM who pushed YHC, covered the 6 with him and circled the wagons to make certain the buzzards hadn’t gotten ahold of YHC all while holding him accountable. So glad we had some new faces today.

Do the people you love most know exactly that? I personally fail to tell them enough. Do better. 

MOLESKIN:
F3 has taught me a ton about initiating. It’s amazing how often we wait for someone else to initiate. F3 has taught me to step up and see what happens. I’m excited the Green Mile has become a standard part of F3 so quickly.
