Mosey up the hill toward The Asylum and Colosseum for 3 laps of the Barclays.  There are 4 stops per lap (one at each stop sign, on at the Colosseum and one at the old rock pile).  One exercise at each stop.  Complete 3 laps on the hop. NOTE:  A legit Barclays has a different exercise at each stop for each lap, but the Q was lazy).  The exercises at each stop:

  • Squats (4 ct) x 25
  • Flutter Kicks (4 ct) x 25
  • Smurf Jacks (4 ct) x 25
  • Merkins x 25

Mosey back to the AO

I have been struggling in my communication with my 15 yr old son.  I’m allowing his attitude to drive my attitude.  In particular, his tone in talking to me is dictating my tone, to the point that I’m saying unkind things to my son.  I’ve got to be more disciplined and seek God’s guidance when I speak to him.  I need to remember God’s admonition about the power of the tongue in James, 3:3-9:

When we put bits into the mouths of horses to make them obey us, we can turn the whole animal. Or take ships as an example. Although they are so large and are driven by strong winds, they are steered by a very small rudder wherever the pilot wants to go. Likewise, the tongue is a small part of the body, but it makes great boasts. Consider what a great forest is set on fire by a small spark. The tongue also is a fire, a world of evil among the parts of the body. It corrupts the whole body, sets the whole course of one’s life on fire, and is itself set on fire by hell.

All kinds of animals, birds, reptiles and sea creatures are being tamed and have been tamed by mankind, but no human being can tame the tongue. It is a restless evil, full of deadly poison.

With the tongue we praise our Lord and Father, and with it we curse human beings, who have been made in God’s likeness. 10 Out of the same mouth come praise and cursing. My brothers and sisters, this should not be. 11 Can both fresh water and salt water flow from the same spring? 12 My brothers and sisters, can a fig tree bear olives, or a grapevine bear figs?Neither can a salt spring produce fresh water.

Prayers this morning to lift up Blue Bird and his family in the death of his cousin and pending funeral; to lift up,  comfort and strengthen Mrs. Lillydipper and Lillydipper; and the same for Pinto.
Get on Slack!  (Looking at you Bunny!)
