CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
After this and most workouts, I do feel like the living dead.  And there are always times that my muscles are on fire.  And these made me think of the first few chapters of Revelations that my Bible study group is going through right now.  Jesus gives some very stern warnings to the churches of the time which, in all honesty, scare me.  Revelation 3:1 “To the angel of the church in Sardis write: These are the words of him who holds the seven spirits of God and the seven stars.  I know your deeds; you have a reputation of being alive, but you are dead.”  He tells the church in Laodicea, “I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other!  So, because you are lukewarm – neither hot nor cold – I am about to spit you out of my mouth.” Rev 3:15-16

How many of our churches today have a reputation of being alive, but are actually spiritually dead?  How many Christians?  Dare I say, how many of us?  How many are lukewarm and are about to be spit from the mouth of our Creator and Savior?  And let me clarify, the Greek word used here for “spit” is literally vomit.  How many are so detestable to our Maker that we will literally make Him vomit us from His presence?  This is more than a warning.  This is a wakeup call!  The time is now!  If you’re not working for the Kingdom and His glory, you’re dead inside.  Even if others look at you and think you’re alive, if you aren’t bearing fruit, you’re dead.  And you need to wake up.  If you are lukewarm or even cold, get hot!  Set yourself ablaze with the Spirit!  Find someone to help you.  And then, start more fires!  Go out and set other souls on fire for Christ!  This is the only way that we can save our souls and this is the only salvation for our world!

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Today I wanted to get everyone doing something different than what we normally do. One of the key points of F3 is to grow ourselves and help others grow.

We focused on that ‘Next Step’ today, being better than we were yesterday. I bet if I asked you yesterday if you could do the workout you just did that you would say that you couldn’t do it. This was meant to be the “progress, not perfection mentality”.

To often do we find ourselves becoming comfortable with where we are and not taking that next step. Just because we feel like we aren’t getting closer to that next plateau. We are farther than we were.

So an example I saw that really had a profound effect is the distance we have to get to God. So every time we take that step toward God, so does God. So even though we are still some distance away from God, we are much farther away from Sin than we were. And every day we can take this next step and be somewhere that we thought was impossible.

Did some classic SSH, Merkins, this and that’s, burpees and baby arm circles.
THA-THANG:
Tank, yes I referred to myself in the 3rd person, started the co-Q with a nice little mosey to the steps below “Dwayne Johnson”.

Doubtfire took over the Q duties and made us run to Nashville, I mean the pavalon. Mayberry had to remind him we did build pull up bars but Doubtfire just kept making us run like some sort of evil dictator. We pleaded to stop but he just hissed at us. I was scared.
We finally got to the pavalon where he had a boom box playing soothing sounds from what sounded like Barbara Streisand. Doubtfire said it was his favorite singer and mentioned something like “she is magical” and looked at us all quite uncomfortably. He then told us o do  pull ups and lunges starting with one and working up to 11. Running up to the top gravel it and doing the same with burpees. How nice of him. Once the first heart attack happened he called off the dogs and we headed back the long cut way to the AO because the previous Q forgot his cell at the steps.
Once everyone got back to the AO and we hit 3 miles, we had a little date with Mary.

MARY:
Hello dollys for the cheetahs until the 6 (me) caught up. Then as a group we did flutters x30 and some awkward one legged donkey kicks to firm up the buttocks for the ladies. There were tennis players there and I was tempted to do pickle pounders and monkey jumpers but figured that they would enjoy it too much.

COUNT-OFF & NAME-O-RAMA
12 total with one FNG Mudpuppy
CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Doubtfire took the reins and talked about the 2nd F and reaching out to our brothers in need. If you haven’t seen someone in a while reach out to them. Dedicate some time to them. Lots of struggles going on out there and no one needs to go through it alone.
MOLESKIN:
Doubtfire and I have been absent from the dog pound for quite a while. Although I still consider the dog pound my original home AO,  I have been cheating on them with the equalizer. I do feel bad about it. The equalizer guys are so nice to me. No one ever tells me that I’m stupid or get out of my way tank you’re going to slow. They never say things like “man are you out of shape.” Or “that’s not the way you do a Burpee you loser”. I was feeling pretty good about myself and I think I needed to be knocked down a couple of notches, that’s why I decided to come back to the dog pound. It was good To be humbled. In all seriousness though, I did miss the guys at the dog pound. I think I’m going to be mixing it up a little bit more in the future. #allf3AOsRULE
