CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
F3 is a great metaphor for what God wants to do to us.  God wants to transform us over time into what he made us for.  As believers, we need to realize that our relationship with him will bring forth change.  True lasting change.

Psalm 150:
1 Praise the Lord!
Praise God in his sanctuary;
praise him in his mighty heavens![a]
2 Praise him for his mighty deeds;
praise him according to his excellent greatness!

3 Praise him with trumpet sound;
praise him with lute and harp!
4 Praise him with tambourine and dance;
praise him with strings and pipe!
5 Praise him with sounding cymbals;
praise him with loud clashing CMUs!
6 Let everything that has breath praise the Lord!
Praise the Lord!

OK, so I changed that last word a bit… We should praise God whatever we are doing, wherever we are, with all that we have!

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Shared article about a counselor from a Nursing home who shared what people at the latter part of their lives longed to go back and do.  What do they regret, if anything?  Almost all responded that they would go back to the time in their lives when they’re kids were home.  When life was crazy and uncertain.  Chaotic.  We always seem to be thinking about the next thing.  It is a challenge to stop and realize we are in a special spot in our lives.  To be present and in the moment.
