CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
From John 15: 12-15.
12 My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you.
13 Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.
During this coronavirus epidemic I had to lay out from F3 as did you. When F3 started meeting again, it hurt me not to be able to join with you brothers. I was concerned about working out with you because, as you know, my wife, Jan, was diagnosed with breast cancer at about the same time the coronavirus epidemic was beginning to spread in the United States. We hear that we can carry the coronavirus without even knowing it. I didn’t want to catch the virus by getting close to others, then unknowingly spread it to my wife.
I realized during the months away from you guys how much strength I get from just meeting with you. I did work out alone and with my son, Bennett (aka Puddle in F3). So, I kept in ok shape. What I missed was the strength of the fellowship, of the encouragement we get from one another as men, of the message shared at the end of each workout, of the commitment to lock shields through the struggle, of the way we push each other forward not only in workouts but as HIMs, of the way we pray for each other, reach out to each other, hold each other in our hearts. Man, I missed you guys.
On Thursday, May 21, Jan and I had a serious talk with her oncologist. Jan has an aggressive breast cancer. The chemotherapy weakens her immune system. She can’t fight off Covid-19 the way you and I might be able to. She was understandably scared about having me go to F3 workouts. She doesn’t want to die and the odds would be significantly higher of that happening to her than to most if she did get Covid-19. But, God bless her, she also saw how much as was missing F3. On the way to chemotherapy, she said that we should talk to the oncologist about the safety of my working out with you guys. The oncologist told me that she felt pretty good about the low risks of outdoor workouts, particularly if a social distance is kept from others. She gave me the green light to come to F3 and so did Jan. Sweat release!! I can’t tell you how that felt to me. I couldn’t believe it. With the news about the coronavirus sticking around all year long, I was wondering if I would ever to get to see you again. And now, if I keep a distance from you, forgive me, it isn’t that I don’t want to be near you. Heck, I want to give each of you a big ol bear hug.
Anyway, what I am saying is thank you. Thank you for praying for me and for Jan. Thank you for the encouraging words you have sent me. Thank you for praying for Jan and me. And, thank you for being a greater source of strength than I even realized.
