Never Say NeverLand

THE SCENE: Warmish but wind made it coldish. Shiney except that Playground of Dreams no longer providing any dreams. They tore that sucker down.

Grab your CMU and stroll to the top of Heartbreak Hill. Partner up except Zima who did his own ARMy workout. T-Claps to Zima’s upper body for doing all the work. Partner 1 runs the path on Heartbreak Hill. Partner 2 does the following until P1 gets back, then flopdoodle.

  • 10 Dips
  • 20 Merkins
  • 30 (10 ea w CMU): Skull Crushers, Shoulder Press, Rows
  • 40 LBCs
  • 50 Squats

Each partner picks up where he left off and then starts over.

5 minutes of 11s (BBS, run to flag pole, Squats, bear crawl back).

5 PAX (no FNG in sight): Zima (AOQ), Choker, Ragequit, Interweb, Photoshop (QiC)


Maybe you’ve seen it at the circus.  Perhaps between skyscrapers.  Or stretched high over a canyon.  A tightrope walker fighting gravity, fear, isolation, and howling winds to slowly navigate the impossible.
Focusing with laser precision.  One step, then another, on a thin cable.  Their eyes on safety at the end of this impossible journey.
Constantly shifting, adapting, and adjusting for whatever comes their way.  The impossible becomes more likely with every forward step they take.
Have you ever faced something in your life that seemed impossible to navigate?  Hearing unexpected news.  Receiving a late night phone call.  Encountering the unforeseen.  Then you become frozen.  Your new reality seems impossible to face.
He replied, “Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.” Matthew 17:20 NIV
Today you have the opportunity to face the impossible. To experience divine peace and gifted faith when confronting the impossible.  When you encounter it today, embrace it today.  Relish it as an opportunity to encounter His hope when facing hopelessness.  His courage when facing the impossible.
PRAYERS: Choker’s M recovering from flu. Photoshop’s mom recovering from hernia repair surgery.

Chicken biscuits with honey and hot sauce from Crave are killer.
Nitro coffee is dang straight too.
