CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:

After cutting open a fresh watermelon, I was reminded that the ONLY thing guaranteed to always be sweet is Heaven. Also, remember that ultimately, our allegiance is to one thing and that is God. All things that detract from that should be investigated thoroughly.

MOLESKIN:

The Exicon is fine for finding descriptions of exercises, but TERRIBLE for finding F3 names of motions youre doing. Also, I might make it a point to call impromptu baby makers and oh yeahs when park walkers come by. Without realizing it, I had back to back to back innuendo exercises. I learned that Neverland and Cockpit branched off of the Morg. Some say it has to do with beans in chili.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
It’s about the goals we set and whether we accomplish them or not. The goal was to get through the entire deck and we didn’t. Not a big deal. But if you goal is to be a better husband, a better father, a better friend, a better follower of Christ. Well in my opinion those are the real goals in life.

The F3 card deck is horrible, but fun

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Been studying Creation which led to the study of what classifies an item to exist. Does something exist because it is material (you can touch, see, smell it) or is it functional (it has purpose or function)? Made me think about Faith. What does it mean for your faith to exist? If your Faith has no function or no purpose, how can we say we have Faith? Live your life and walk your walk to where your Faith has function and purpose. You’ll never have to question its existence.

MOLESKIN:
Counting in cadence becomes increasingly difficult as the workout progresses. It also becomes increasingly comical during the pains of Mary.

YHC had planned to talk about trust in regard to leadership but was moved by Tomb Raider’s COT from the previous day so called an audible.

Death is now.  The choice is here.  Lay your life down.  Your heartbeats cannot be hoarded. Your reservoir of breaths is draining away.  You have hands, blister them while you can.  You have bones, make them strain-they can carry nothing in the grave. You have lungs, let them spill with laughter.  With an average life expectancy of 78.2 years in the U.S., I have around 250,000 conscious hours remaining to me in which I could be smiling or scowling, rejoicing in my life, in this race, in this story, or moaning and complaining about my troubles.  I can be giving my fingers, my back, my mind, my words, my breaths, to my wife and my children and my neighbors, or I can grasp after the vapor and the vanity for myself, dragging my feet, afraid to die and therefore afraid to live.  And, like Adam, I will still die in the end.  

Living is the same thing as dying.  Living well is the same thing as dying for others.”

excerpt from ‘Death by Living‘  N.D. Wilson
