CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:

Talked about the fact that we are made for relationship and to be looking out for other men who share common experiences with you.  We often think we are going through hard times alone and that no one could understand our situation.  The fact is, other people have dealt with similar situations to those that cause us worry and pain.  It could be the reason you are going through your current bout with pain is so you can support a fellow man when he is struggling and needs someone to lean on.   So, if you find others dealing with the same issues you have dealt with….use that as an opportunity to engage with them and lift them up.

MOLESKIN:

We had a first today:  while sprinting the matterhorn a car came down the hill following a dog.  Turns out they were “walking” the dog while chain smoking a pack of cigarettes.   Nothing quite like sprinting through 2nd hand smoke!

COUNT-OFF & NAME-O-RAMA

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
I apologize, I thought it was way later than it was and didn’t want to hold anyone up. But it is the truth! You men encourage me everyday and ensure that I stay humble! Thank you.
MOLESKIN:
Majority of the PAX showed up early, Blue Cross and Proton showed us they could have started late if they wanted to. Sparky piped up later on GroupMe to eradicate ANY DOUBT that each man that showed up today, is an absolute HIM. It’s hard not to compare where we are, against where other people are. We have to remember that oftentimes, we are comparing our beginning to someone else’s middle. Or our middle to someone else’s end. We’re all in different seasons and it’s important to embrace where we are today and keep pushing to better ourselves. 

No man left behind, no man left the same.

When we first come out, it’s about survival. Then we get to the point that we can go for a whole workout. It’s important that we don’t stop there and that we continue to push ourselves to improve.

MOLESKIN:
FNG Rosetta showed up after receiving a Flying EH from “the Snowman” Frosty. Some mumble chatter about how eerily similar this was to the Killer B’s. However, if you want to be the Iron PAX, you have to train like the Iron PAX!

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
While traveling yesterday I heard a man say on The Message radio station “We look for God in the destination but He is often found in the detour.” Many of us have had detours this year that have affected us physically, emotionally, spiritually, financially, at work, at home etc and we don’t understand why things aren’t going the way we planned and wonder where God is.

We are looking to Him and for Him in the end and are not looking to understand His meaning and plan for us in the midst of our detour. So if you are like Daniel in the Lion’s Den, Moses by the Burning Bush or even like Jonah in the belly of the whale. Seek God and look for Him and know that He is with you and He has a plan for you that might not be what you expected and your circumstances don’t make sense but know that you are right where He wants you. He is with you and will lead you out.  It’s just a detour.

MOLESKIN:
Prayers for Lady Junk, Garrett’s family, everyone in the Bahamas affected by a hurricane Dorian, my daughter Callie that has an infection
