It was my 18 year wedding anniversary.  Message was serve your wife.  Love her and serve her without looking for something in return.  We are to love her like Christ loves the Church.

Treat all your relationships this way.

Hello Darlin

WARM-O-RAMA:
SSH, Tie Fighters, Butts-Up, Preachers, etc.
THA-THANG:
Unlike CMUs, rocks found in the woods can’t be thought of as private property, and they don’t seem like huge threats to children’s safety. There happened to be some (rocks not kids), so we took them out for a shuffle.

We did the Hands Fast Ten, then over to the Caribbean.

Laps around the islands, 20-15-10-5 reps each lap, with and without our naturally occurring, non privately owned and totally harmless companions. Q has to admit that he cheated his reps on the hand release merkins. Let this be a lesson to everyone that if you can’t do it, you shouldn’t Q it. Conway got Ribbed pumped up, and I failed Kentucky by not playing “Borderline” by MDNA. She was next on the playlist!

“Cast your burden on the Lord, and He shall sustain you; He shall never permit the righteous to be moved” (Psalm 55:22). As men we carry a lot of burdens to provide and protect our concentrica. We can either allow that burden to weigh us down or we can use that to strengthen us. After God asked Jesus to carry a cross, we can carry a CMU representing our burdens.

Jeremiah 2:13

God is waiting patiently for us. With Living water.  All we would ever need.

Take out the trash.
We listened to Christian rap today during the workout.  As we physically removed trash form the Catholic campus, we spiritually removed trash from our lives.  Garbage in = Garbage out.  I challenged each of us to find the trash in our lives that impedes us, and to remove it.

John 2:13-22


Jesus overturned tables in the temple.  He took out the trash.  When confronted with things in our lives, look at how Jesus handled situations, and model your response after his.  If something is not right, we should follow his lead.
MOLESKIN:
Pray for East Knoxville.
ANNOUNCEMENTS:
We are collecting for Safe Haven.  There is not a more appropriate   time to consider helping the East Knox Community.  Here is one way we can assist.

Hey Fellas. For the month of April, we are going to be collecting items at the AOs for Safe Haven, a program of the World United Ministries (www.worldunitedministries.org) led by Laurence Williams in East Knoxville. The ministry is in the trenches trying to steer the really at risk kids in the Austin-East community into good choices and away from gang life.  Safe Haven, a donated house on Magnolia Avenue, is meant to be a place where kids can go and hang out, and also escape violence when needed – it has bunk beds available.  F3 Knoxville will be providing them with the following items:
                                                                     
* individually wrapped snacks
* individual bottles or cans of soda, Gatorade or water
* paper towels, Clorox wipes, trash bags
* toilet paper
* Visa gift cards in small denominations ($10-20) 
* Bath towels and twin bed linens.
