CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Over the course of a few weeks at work, I encountered 2 instances where patients or coworkers yelled for help. Instinctively, I sprang into action. It’s easier to answer the calls for help when they are loud enough for everyone to hear, but what about the cries we don’t hear? Be aware of those around you who aren’t outwardly crying for help. Be kind to others, we don’t know what everyone is going through.

Son of a Preacher Man

THE SCENE: Y’all knew it was going to be cold and wet, and you dragged yourselves out there anyway. Q’s got to up his game on a day like that.  
WARM-O-RAMA:

I don’t know anything at all about working out except what I learned from the pax, so SSH (thanks every single Q ever), Cherry Pickers (no thanks to whoever mis-named them), Rockettes, The Junk Science (my humble contribution; you’re welcome), and in honor of the high desert’s very own Preacher, we did The Preacher. Bumped from 10 to 15 after a fittingly profane text from Tucson.
THA-THANG:
A little Route 66 inspired by Lily. The Cloud gave us some Box Baby Boxes, and because there is apparently some unresolved conflict in my life, we visited with my old buddy Jack Webb.

Light rain and a light mosey towards Cardiac but not quite to Cardiac. Picked up some babies by the side of the road and shared them with our buddies. Shout out to Honeydew for carrying the two of us through the Doras.

There comes a time in a man’s life when whatever’s inside has to come out, and Cardiac is built for just such a purpose.

What happens during the Crawdad Comeback is both private and communal; a man experiences his limitations and his freedom; there is running forward and in reverse. It is a time of paradox and, potentially, vomit.

The great Mickey won the final sprint to the AO, and by an embarrassingly wide margin. *Author’s note, he donated the winner’s proceeds to Jumbo, who had wisely saved his energies for his forthcoming 100m breaststroke domination in Kingsport today.

It being the weekend, we cashed out like men, and then we limped away.

“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.

We…I…need to stop building our own cisterns that hold our own water. They will crumble and all will be lost.

Christ is right there for us. Always. If you seek him
