Elevensies in the Saddle….

Somewhere between frostbite and death…purrty skies though.

Mosey to the Stables

Elevens at three different AO locations:

  1. Stables:  10 to 1 Pull-ups (or hangs or leg ups) to Merkins.  Run between stables and cone between exercises.  Mosey to Stadium once complete.
  2. Stadium: 10 to 1 Burpees to Dips.  “Run” up and down stairs between exercises.  The spacing between stairs was not even and poorly lit so more of a brisk walk up and down.  Mosey to Startex once complete.
  3. Parking Lot:  10 to 1 BBSUs to American Hammers (2 is 1).  Bear Crawl about 30 yards between exercises

We did not finish Set 3 above so that was our Mary.

13 souls braved the frigid temps including two FNGs:  Nature Boy, Speaker, U-Rock, Soybean, Stapp (FNG), EarBud (FNG), Cheesesteak, Hacksaw, Pops, Blart, Woodpecker, Watchita, 1040 (QIC)

Who are you praying for?  We all have those folks in our life who anger, annoy or frustrate us.  It’s usually someone we see consistently like a coworker, boss, wife, child or parent.  How often do we prefer to rant or vent about that person or stew in our own indignation?  What if you pray for that person instead? If you pray for that person instead of ranting or venting, I truly believe the Holy Spirit will soften your heart towards that person and reveal to you how Jesus sees that person.  I encourage all PAX in those moments of anger or frustration with another person, to seek God in prayer.  It may not fix the situation at hand, but it can fix your eyes on the One who loves all and calls all who believe in Him to love all.

Woodpecker’s story about his grandfather’s WW2 medals is really awesome.  The stories of the Greatest Generation should encourage and push us to better men today.

U-Rock is a HIM for providing the warm (Aldi) coffee.

Look for a future communication on 2F lunches.
