Mosey with a CMU to the trailhead by the pavilion.  At each of the upcoming light poles is a piece of paper.  Run to the first pole with the CME and do the first exercise.  Leave the CMU behind, return to start, and do 12 reps of exercise 1.  Run back to the first pole, pick up your CMU, carry it to pole #2 and do the second exercise and the first exercise.  Leave the CMU behind, return to start, and do 12 reps of exercise 2.  Continue the pattern until all 12 exercises are performed at light pole #12.  Finally return to the Grinder for a time of Mary.

No time for Mary today

Julie has always made comments that the best gift is to have her family around her on special occasions like her birthday.  I was able to experience how much she meant that recently as she celebrated her 70th birthday last week.

My daughter, who lives in Northern Virginia with her family, organized a birthday party with her two brothers for Julie last Thursday, two days before her birthday on Saturday, December 18th.  We met at a nice local restaurant with our children, spouses, and 7 grandkids.  There were a total of 15 of us.  It was a total surprise to Julie as she walked into the room and, in an instant, I could tell that it meant the world to her.  As Julie has always said, it was the best present she could have received.

There were many great things about the evening but perhaps one of the more noteworthy is that I never saw anyone looking at or playing with their phones.  Everyone focused on Julie and each other.  Everyone was tuned in and enjoying each others company.

Most of us will have some sort of family gathering over the coming days.  Too often, and I’m a guilty party, phones and other electronic devices distract us and keep us from really connecting.  As HIMs lets not let that happen in our own behavior and as leaders lets see if we can make a difference in others around us.

Merry Christmas!  May the Lord bless you and keep you, may His face look down on you and give you peace.

Prayers for Drifter as he travels over Christmas.  Prayers for 3 year Hunter recently diagnosed with cancer.
