25 SSH, 20 Imperial walkers, 16 don Quixotes, 15 through the tunnels, and lbac on your own
Pax moseyed to the tennis courts for a little four corners. 5 Merkins then bear crawl to next corner to do 5 flutter kicks, bear crawl to next Coreen to do 5 Carolina dry docks, then bear crawl to next corner for 5 Freddie Mercurys. One more round but move to 10 reps. 2 rounds seemed to have the pax significantly satisfied with Thier first gift.
Move to the basketball court where a 5 gallon bucket with a 50 lb bag of sand happened to be against the wall. On the other end were a few fitdeck bodyweight cards. Pax were instructed to pickup the bucket any way other than by the handle and carry it to the cards that were face down, bring one back, and pax would complete exercise on card. Pax waited patiently planking while pax traveled with bucket. Exercises included merkins of all varieties, bobby hurleys, lots of Mary, and other stuff. Three rounds of that and pax seemed satisfied with their second gift.

Prayer requests and prayer
Devo was Romans 5.
Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. Through him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God. Not only that, but we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.
I reminded the pax that they are the reason I continue to show up. Yea we all want to get stronger, faster, better. Seeing the faces each morning in the gloom is awesome to me and I thanked the pax. Without hope and faith, life is very unmanageable. God is good and his mercy and grace allow us the air we breathe and the strength we have.
MerryChristmas to all and you’re welcome for the gifts that will keep on giving through today but probably more tomorrow!
