Galatians 6:2

Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ

Whether your rich, poor, healthy, unhealthy… all of us face difficulties in life that we cannot handle alone. God calls upon us to help each other carry our burdens. Life would be almost impossible without each other. Look for ways you can help your friends, families, or even strangers.  You may never know what burdens they are carrying.

11 Pax – Tagged to post

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
I drop the ball on this – my words were not put into sentences very well after this beatdown and I delivered a very confusing and non complete message…I owe it to the Pax – I will re-visit this message with a “part 2” on my next Q!

MOLESKIN:
The AMRAP layout really increases the intensity of the work-out.  Everyone was together doing the same movements and able to motivate one another for another level of intensity.  Multiple Pax caught the eyes of another in a moment of rest before digging deeper and pushing through!

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Started the morning with the Stars Spangled Banner version by Jimi Hendrix.  It was played at Woodstock almost 50 years ago on August 18, 1969.  Some believe it was and is an irreverent rendition but I always liked the fact that his guitar playing brought out the chaos that Francis Scott Key must have seen when he wrote the words “rockets red glare” and “bombs bursting in air.”

The main part of THA-THANG with the colony stations involved an AMRAP while the flag bearer was running and each HIM had the “freedom” to do as many of each exercise.  As with each F3 workout, we have the freedom to come out and to give as much or as little as we want.  Suffice to say, everyone wore it out this morning but it was an individual decision to do so.  (OK, we all have a great ability to overtly or covertly push each other.

We all should appreciate the freedom we have that was started in 1776 and resulted in 1% of the colony’s citizens giving their life to attain it.  We should also be overwhelmed with gratitude for the sacrifice of Jesus to gain eternal freedom with God the Father.  In the end of this earthly life that is what will ultimately matter.  For as 2 Corinthians 3:17 says, “Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.”
