CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Easter has come and gone. It’s always been one of my favorite holidays. I’ve always been a very stubborn and found it difficult to forgive others who have wronged me in the past. I think this is why I am drawn to Easter because it is a time for forgiveness. Stripped, bound, beaten and crucified, Jesus called for God to forgive those who persecuted him. In times of distress and during the trials of our own lives, may we have the love and resolve to forgive those who have wronged us.

Jesus died on the cross to forgive all humanity of their sins including past, present, and future sins. Although we are imperfect beings, I think we can draw from this act of love and forgiveness. Jesus calls for us to love our enemies and forgive those who have trespassed against us. May we all put our judgement aside and live into this moving forward and become more Christlike.

We are Easter people. Spread the Good News.

MOLESKIN:
Luke 23:34

“Father, forgive them for they do not know what they are doing.”

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Reflected on Easter weekend and this quote: “To you I say, do you know what Jesus does with those who squander his mercy? He pours out more mercy. God is rich in mercy.  That’s the whole point.  Whether we have been sinned against or have sinned ourselves into misery, the Bible says God is not tightfisted with mercy but openhanded, not frugal but lavish, not poor but rich.  That God is rich in mercy means that your regions of deepest shame and regret are not hotels through which divine mercy passes but homes in which divine mercy abides.  It means the things about you that make you cringe the most, make him hug hardest.  It means his mercy is not calculated and cautious, like ours.  It is unrestrained, flood-like, sweeping, magnanimous.  It means our haunting shame is not a problem for him, but the very thing he loves most to work with.  It means our sins do not cause his love to take a hit.  Our sins cause his love to surge forward all the more.  It means that on the day when we stand before him, quietly, unhurriedly, we will weep with relief, shocked at how impoverished a view of his mercy-rich heart we had.” ~ from Dane Ortlund’s “Gentle and Lowly: The Heart of Christ for Sinners and Sufferers”, pg. 179-180.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Love my time here in Alcoa F3.  It has been over 3 years of hot, snowy, frigid, downpours and few perfect temp days of hard workouts but I loved every minute of it.  Going to miss the amazing history lessons from Hammy, trying to keep up with Snorkel, Veep’s odd funnel stories, beer rucks, heart felt messages from Drifter, carrying bowling balls, turkeys, and swords around like it’s normal, dressing up as Mario with Snorkel as Luigi, Waxjob Hill, The Educator, Mt. Crumpet, Hellbender Bend,  and I am going to miss all the encouraging words by each and every member that passed my way.  See you all in the gloom some day soon.
