10 took JUCOmanjaro twice today!
CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
It is difficult hearing your 2 year old telling you “no” to a hug or a kiss.  I think the reason she says this is because she doesn’t see me as much or spend time with me as much as her mother.  Kids do tend to have there preferences as to which parent they want around them most.  This reminds me that spending time with family is important.  Make sure to make your family a higher priority than yourself.  Developing close relationships always takes time.
MOLESKIN:
Kudos to Judge Judy for the solo pre-ruck.

We played the 7 of diamonds this morning and won big! We started with a mosey and formed a line for an Indian run and found a nice “diamond-shaped” parking lot. Here’s the 7 of diamonds.  Do each exercise at each corner of the diamond.  All exercises are in increments of 7.

I had 2 rounds planned, but I didn’t think that we would get to the 2nd.  We got 7 diamond merkins at the corners and started on our way back.

  • 21 mountain climbers and mosey to the F3 parking lot

16 at JUCO this morning.  Great Friday crowd!
CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Be a servant leader.  John 13:13-16.  Jesus had just washed the disciples’ feet showing a great example of being a servant leader.  He humbled himself and became a servant to accomplish God’s will on this earth.  Look to His example and remember that being a leader is about serving others.  So, step up and take those leadership opportunities in front of you and serve!
MOLESKIN:
Pre-ruck with Doubtfire, Judge Judy, and Spotter was a great way to start the day!  Thanks men.
ANNOUNCEMENTS:
CSAUP tomorrow!  If you have never done an event like this, I highly recommend it!  It is definitely an experience you will enjoy and not forget.

13 HIMs came out on hump day
CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:

“If you pray for rain, take an umbrella.”

This phrase has always stuck with me when I consider the things I pray for. If you’re going to ask for God to intervene in your life, you need to have faith that He will do so. Our faith is manifested in the belief that God will answer our prayers. Ezra is a great example of this principle. When Ezra made plans to travel from Babylon back to Jerusalem he refused an escort from the King. He knew he would be traveling a long distance through hostile land, but he insisted that he did not need an escort because he had prayed to God for protection. Ezra had faith that God would answer his prayer and he acted on this faith. The next time you pray, don’t forget to take your umbrella.

MOLESKIN:
Shoutout to Bagger and Judge Judy for joining me on the pre-ruck and to Erector for knocking out a pre-run. We’d love to grow the pre-ruck/pre-run group. Come on out at 4:45 for some extra credit.
ANNOUNCEMENTS:
Bring snacks this week and next for the kids at the Wesley House.

The new Oak Ridge AO is set to start up on February 5th and will be on Tuesdays. Contact Erector if you are interested.

“Integrity”
When faced with a difficult situation ask what is the right thing to do, then do it regardless of the consequences.
The godly walk with integrity; blessed are their children who follow them. Proverbs 20:7
Joyful are people of integrity, who follow the instructions of the LORD. Psalm 119:1
Special Thanks to Fabio who delivered 30 CMU’s to the Asylum
