    We moseyed around the pond and made our way to the tennis court. PAX partnered up for a 4 set rotation alternating through step ups and painting the lines. A 20 second count lead us to the next task. PAX positioned on each corner of the tennis court to complete 3 rounds of AMRAPs in 30 seconds of Burpees, Squats, Merkins, Lunges. Rotation 1 and 2 around court included added excitement with Bear crawls to the next corner. Rotation 3 included karaoke.
    Back to flag for Ab circle taking PAX suggestions, which included too many to name, but here you go: Box cutter, Alphabet Mary, Freddie Mercury, Big Boy Sit Ups, LBC, flutter kicks, scissor kick, leg raises and others.
    PAX did great making it through with comments including: “Thanks for taking it easy on us.”…Noted
    Circle of Trust
    “Man up” 30-day devotional from Bible app. Real men are self-confident and can let God show them how they should act. We are to pursue righteousness and Godliness, becoming more like Him. We are to have, bold, courageous faith-following God even in times where it feels foolish, with steadfastness.
    And finally, men should be gentle with those around them- their wives and children. Being harsh and rigid doesn’t make you a man; it just makes you difficult to love. In our gentleness, we create and atmosphere that invites and creates a culture of love in our homes.
    Application- Pay attention to the words/mood with our family, friends and co-workers today. Reflect God’s gentleness even with those who wrong you.
    1 Timothy 6:11- But as for you, O man of God, flee these things. Pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, steadfastness, gentleness.
    Proverbs 15:1- A soft answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.
