CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:

I talked about my struggle to pray when times are good, and my desire to pray when times are tough.  I recently dropped my daughter off at a camp in Palo Alto CA.  She is 15, and we were both struggling at the prospect of her being on her own.  I finally left her, and I was a wreck emotionally.  I took a long walk around the Stanford Campus to clear my head and spent a lot of time in prayer.

My daughter met some people and did great, and I hailed an UBER back to San Francisco.  I encountered the best driver I have ever had.  He had over 28,000 trips and maintained a 4.99 star rating out of 5.  Nasim was a Jordanian immigrant.  He retired from the grocery business, and drives UBER for fun.  He loves people, and was raised as a Christian in Jordan, before immigrating to the US.  We had a delightful conversation, and he was an answer to prayers, and maybe even an angel.  Nasim and I swapped numbers and he texted me the next day (Father’s Day) to see how I was doing.

We need God all of the time, not just when things are rough, the challenge this week is to remember that and spend some time in prayer.  God is real, He is there just waiting for you to have a relationship with Him.

MARY:
The first exercise called was LBC’s and someone said take us to 100, so we did 50 LBC’s in cadence equaling 100.  Be careful what you ask for.  Then we did 36 flutter kicks only because I failed to stop at 35, finally we all did 10 big boys on our own, and for the last few seconds dumpster dive had us do jumping beans.

COUNT-OFF & NAME-O-RAMA
We did have one FNG, named Carter.  We named him Flintstone because he was wearing minimalist running sandals, and was practically barefoot!

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Do you ever have an experience where you are seeking an answer to a problem and you discover the answer is right in front of you?
I was tired of being “overweight”, i ballooned up to 210 and knew what to do, but despite working out and running 5-6 days a week I was making no progress.  I knew I needed to make better eating decisions but didn’t want to commit.  The answer was in front of me in plain sight, but I was intentionally blind to it.
it’s been a 90 day journey, but with moderation to my eating habits I have been able to drop my weight into the mid 180’s.  This has increased my ability to “push it” during the workouts.  The answer was there all along.

In Luke 24, on the rod to Emmaus, 2 men had a similar experience they met a “stranger” and explained their sorrow that Jesus was dead.  The stranger was actually Jesus, but they were blind to that.  Jessie eventually reveals himself and they found the answer they were seeking.  (This is a massive paraphrase, lol).

This revelation was life altering.  What exists in your life that you are missing that is hiding in plain sight?  Are you burying your head and being ignorant, are you seeking the answer?  Sometimes what you seek, like my weight, is obvious, and owning up to your shortcomings will reveal the answer.
