The Disclaimer

This is F3 and I am Whittler and am far from being a professional.  You have wisely chosen to be here on your own volition.  I am going to push you today but hopefully we have a little fun.  Modify exercises as necessary but if you do get hurt, we will carry you back to your car (unless you need something cut off or cut out, I will give you my business card).

The Thang

Short Mosey to the Riverfront where each PAX was instructed to find their own Dwayne and meet me at the lamppost.  After the lessons learned from Proscuitto on Tuesday, I opted to allow PAX to choose their own rock instead of launching them at the PAX.  PAX were then given their prescription for pain numbered 1-10.

PAX now lined up with Dwayne in two rows, facing each other for the Tower of Trust

Each PAX held their Dwayne at arms length in front of them while all PAX took turns bearcrawling through the tower of trust and then sprinting back to their rock to rejoin the tower.  Once all were finished, we mosied back to the Love Shack for some MoM.

My watch then said it was time.  VQ over and done.  The count was taken. The Golden Glove was then awarded to Mr. Clean (again) because let’s be honest, if you post by yourself, you deserved the freaking Golden Glove.

Trust

Proverbs 3:5-6 – “Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding.  Seek His will in all you do and He will show you which path to take.”

I have come across this verse many times recently and it has really spoken to me about the situation I currently am going through with moving, taking a new job, and being separated from my wife and kids.  We all go through times in our lives when we don’t understand things such as death, illness, divorce, job loss, etc.  It’s during these times where it’s important to give our unconditional trust to God.  He knows exactly what He is doing and has a plan for all of us.  Too often we condition our trust, meaning that we make promises to get better IF you get this job or IF He heals our ailing family member.  Instead of giving our conditional trust, during these times it’s even more important to show our unconditional trust in God’s plan for our lives.  God pours His peace and joy into trusting hearts.  We as men and leaders of our family and this community need to lead by example and trust in God’s plan.  When things don’t seem to be going your way, we need to be examples to our family, coworkers, and friends of what it means to unconditionally trust God.  Don’t get stuck on what isn’t working out; instead, trust that God is always working things in your favor.

Whittler out.
