MOLESKIN:
At the halfway point during the workout, I  hit a wall, I went dark and thought to myself , this is too hard , I don’t know that I can complete all 20 cones… I knew that we had 20 cones but a few only saw 17-18 cones, which created some mumble chatter once they saw that there was more to do ! Seeing ALL THOSE cones lined up the hill really puts your mind in a place you don’t want to be. Knowing what we went through today , suffering through the workout, we or let’s say I found a way to get through and complete the planned workout. Last time we tried , we fell short of time. We fell short on official F3 time but were so close to completing the mission ! I really appreciate everyone staying a few minutes past so we could complete the workout! Everyone persevered through the workout ! Thank you and rest assure, we won’t need to do it again now that we finished what we started!

Sometimes we need help to get through tough situations. Family is there for us no matter what, but sometimes family is more than just blood relations. Even Moses needed help to hold up his staff for the Israelites to win the battle, even with God on their side. Trust in your family and your chosen family to lift you up when needed.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:

I have been challenged at work recently with an expectation additional leadership. Basically, have to figure out what I need to be doing on the fly. I have come to see the correlation of this to life in general. We say a lot: “Embrace the suck” but we should also include “Embrace the challenge”. Today’s PAX embraced the challenges that were thrown at them and excelled. HUGE shout out to everyone for encouraging those thrust into these positions this morning.

MOLESKIN:

Praise for prayers answered:

Waxjob has a contract on his house!!!

My father has had some heart trouble recently and we got some good news this week. Diagnosis isn’t as dire as originally suspected but still serious. Thanks to all the prayer warriors, it was drastically impactful and immensely appreciated.

Prayers needed:

Family that @Bartman works with had an unexpected death in the family. It’s hard to lose someone but especially hard when that family should have had a much longer time with them.

Waxjob needs a place to live for a month. If you know anyone that can rent a spot for a month, let him know.

Hardship Hill is coming up. Team Dog Bite is ready to get after it.
