CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Where in your life are you taking shortcuts? I realized that I am so addicted to checking the box that I will try to just get things done as soon as possible and sometimes that includes taking shortcuts. I caught my 12 yo daughter taking shortcuts when cleaning her room and just wanting to get things done. I realized that we’re in the same struggle and I’m just a little further down the road.
MOLESKIN:

Wagon Wheel won

I-beam likes ranger panties

John 13:35 – By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.
Lots of hate today being shown on both sides. Jesus didn’t say we’d be known by our convincing arguments or our persistence in presenting them. It’s by our love. Let’s show who we belong to.
MOLESKIN:
Dung Beetles 100% suck. Entomologically, it would probably be more correct to use large exercise balls and roll them instead of sliding pee rocks. At any rate, I think Tweet-E was the only HIM to complete a full transition in Dung Beetle before modifying to Snowplow…

Urban legend says it takes 21 days to form a habit. Of course, this is an overgeneralization, but… Lockdown was more than 21 days. What habits did you form? Maybe some good, maybe some bad… Step back and evaluate. As things loosen up over the coming days/weeks, make the effort to keep the good and do away with the bad!
MOLESKIN:
One of my bad habits was not working out… That second trip up the matterhorn this morning was a painful reminder of that.

Man can only observe what is in front of him, he must work with a group so that someone else can watch his six. This is why we hold each other accountable and work as a PAX.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Last year my word for the year was Relentless. Things were coming at me hard and fast and stayed that way all year. From losses to job struggles, it was an absolutely relentless year. So this year, I’m more cautious about the word I’m choosing. This year it’s Celebrate! I hope that brings plenty of Celebration into my world and celebrate with friends and family whenever the opportunity arises.
MOLESKIN:

So… It didn’t rain. Hats off to Mayberry for directing everyone up to the Pav-A-Lon anyway. We started late, ended late and most of the Q was pieced together as went along. As always, great to be out with the HIMs in the Gloom.
