The Perfect Game

THE SCENE: 55 degrees and the ground was wet after some rain last night

F3 WELCOME & DISCLAIMER


WARM-O-RAMA:

THA-THANG:
PAX grab their CMUs and mosey to the baseball field to find cones set up at all 9 positions and both benches

Explained that a perfect game in baseball is getting all 27 outs without allowing a base runner so we would do 27 reps of each exercise at each location except right field. Only other rule is to keep your CMU with you at all times.

  • Pitcher – CMU Swings
  • Catcher – CMU Thrusters
  • 1st Base – CMU Curls
  • 2nd Base – CMU Overhead Press
  • 3rd Base – Iron Mikes (2-ct)
  • Shortstop – Blockees
  • Left Field – Big Boy Situps
  • Center Field – Hand Release Merkins
  • Right Field – Run Lap Around Field
  • Bench 1 – Step Ups
  • Bench 2 – Dips

PAX did 7s on the hill next to the field after completing the perfect game. Bodybuilders at the bottom of the hill and WW2 Situps at the top.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
“Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one receives the prize? So run that you may obtain it.” 1 Corinthians 9:24

What are we doing to make sure we win the race? Just like it takes discipline and training to win a race, we need to be disciplined and be training to lead in the race of life. We win that race by being the leaders that God intends us to be. We must first lead our families, then lead in our churches, workplaces, and any where else God places us. We can lead by example even if we don’t have a title that would indicate that we are in charge. We can do everything to the best of our abilities no matter whether someone is watching or not.

COUNT-OFF & NAME-O-RAMA
One FNG joined the HIMs today, welcome to Spurt (Jesse Cartegena)!
CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Times are strange and life can be bewildering.  Some may relate when I say I’ve felt weighed down and tired lately.  Jesus said “Come to me all who are weary and heavy laden, and I will give you rest…” and “My yoke is easy and my burden is light.”  Consider that he was a carpenter, and one task he probably engaged was to make yokes for livestock.  Unbalanced weight makes the work hard and painful (like running with a CMU on your shoulders or in your arms).  When the weight is distributed on a well-fitted yoke (like a ruck or weight vest), the burden feels lighter and the work seems easier in comparison to the unbalanced load.  We men are made to carry burdens, to carry our brothers and family with us through good times and bad times, to lead with integrity.  Jesus will make the load bearable for each of us, when we submit to him and let him fit the yoke properly.

Use the TAGS on right-side to record PAX (BE SURE TO INCLUDE YOURSELF) in attendance. Be sure to select the AO in CATEGORY above TAGS and then delete these notes!
CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
The code of chivalry is good, but looking back and wishing things were like they were is unwise (Eccelsiastes 7:10-14). Sometimes, when things are crazy, it’s tempting to simplify and vilify. But the truth is we don’t know it all because that’s not our place. It’s God’s place. So it’s our job to seize the day, good or bad, and do the right thing as best we’re able. Just let go of the rest and leave it with God.
