CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Waiting for our house to sell has been a real test of patience. We are learning to wait on Him, not just with a passive “doing nothing” kind of waiting, but seeking Him to try to understand His will for us. If you’re waiting too, try to seek God during that time rather than just passively waiting as though you’re waiting on a bus or something…
MOLESKIN:
I realized as I stood up from an exercise at the top of the hill that I should have swapped the up/down exercises. Same work, but we would have gotten to enjoy the view out over the lake doing the standing exercises vs. the ones where you’re just looking at the ground!
ANNOUNCEMENTS:

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
I told the PAX about the program I have been watching on Amazon called World War II in HD. It was a phenomenal program that really changed the way I thought about our history and the men and women that served our country during that time. I shared with them some stats on the number of casualties during World War II and the millions of people that died as a result of evil men. The sacrifice that they gave to protect the innocent and save our world was  unbelievable.  It made me think about the small sacrifices that we need to make on a daily basis for others.. weather it be our family, our friends, or even complete strangers.

Watch WWII in HD, it will change you.

MOLESKIN:
