When I was planning this Q, I wasn’t sure about that last lap around the field… Only 6 reps? I was both pleasantly and unpleasantly surprised at the sufficiency of suck provided by those 6 reps!

COUNT-OFF & NAME-O-RAMA
15 PAX this morning
CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
I’m serving on the worship team at church this Sunday, and one of the songs I’ve been practicing is a lively meditation on God’s faithfulness. The bridge repeats, “I will rest in Your promises. My confidence is your faithfulness.” He is faithful, and He has proven Himself in my life as I’m sure He has in yours. Remember His faithfulness in the past, and rest in his promises for tomorrow.

MOLESKIN:
Pretty much the second time this week for the same beatdown… Figured it was good enough to repeat today since my legs were still feeling it from Monday.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
We took in the beauty of this morning’s sunrise from the high point by the restaurant as we did our overhead claps. God as put beauty in the world all around us, both for our enjoyment and to point to Him. Take time today and look for that beauty, especially in places where you may not appreciate it every day. Really look into your wife’s eyes as she talks about her day. Marvel at the delicacy and tinyness of your baby’s toes as you change a diaper. Check out the rainbow swirls and patterns in the oily puddle of condensation runoff from your car A/C…

Split into 2 teams. Each team has an identical pile of exercise cards.

COUNT-OFF & NAME-O-RAMA
16 HIMs – Twice the number as last time for this workout.
CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
“Don’t try to carry that dang thing by yourself!”. We’re trying to get the house ready to pack up. Lots of heavy things to lift and move. Sometimes I listen to that admonition from my M, sometimes I don’t (usually to my later regret). Whatever it is you’re trying to carry on your own, quit trying to carry that dang thing by yourself. Jesus said “Come to me all you who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me.” He didn’t say “saddle” or “harness”. Those are for a single animal. The yoke is a shared burden. Two oxen work together. He’s not saying you should pick up his load instead of yours. He will pull alongside you, and teach you how to pull properly. He’s strong enough to pull any load.
MOLESKIN:
OK, we’re working on a name for the hill up to the rock… Stay tuned! Also, hybrid Coffeeteria and OTB weight workout at 10818 Sallings Rd this Saturday…
ANNOUNCEMENTS:
Hardship Hill coming soon – If you’re not registered, you should be! Abridged OEW benefit night Thursday 5/9.
