Today we completed the Melissa and Doug Childhood Throw Back Challenge in which adults are challenged to play games they enjoyed as children as a way of invigorating a sense of play.

As these thing tend to happen, I had an idea repeated to me several times in the last week on the topic of joy from a Facebook post, to another HIM’s COT, the witty banter on GroupMe, and some scripture. All of these pointed towards having Joy. Our Creator designed us for Joy not gloom and worry. Here are a couple verses on Joy to reflect on:

“A joyful heart is good medicine, but a broken spirit dries up the bones.”
‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭17:22‬ ‭

“He will yet fill your mouth with laughter and your lips with a shout of joy.”
‭‭Job‬ ‭8:21‬ ‭

“Though you have not seen him, you love him; though not seeing him now, you believe in him, and you rejoice with inexpressible and glorious joy, because you are receiving the goal of your faith, the salvation of your souls.”
‭‭1 Peter‬ ‭1:8-9‬ ‭

A final thought: one of the things that makes F3 work is being both challenging and fun. Most of us have tried the POGO 40 challenge and lost because it is hard to let “fern” challenge you and keep it fun.

Still learning how to Q. There was some tech trouble today with a speaker, but the PAX were patient and encouraging. Special thanks to Phat Pat for providing some assistance when needed.

Coffeteria schedule for Morg: Monday at Bartlett Donuts and Thursday at Momma’s BBQ.
