3 Unwise Men #SlingingPain

So the idea of getting three men together that were all in slings came about and of course had to become a reality. How hard could a Q be coming from three broken Q’s??? The amount leg trembling and calf explosions quickly answered that.

Also, scented trash bags keep you from smelling funky during a workout and keep everyone else from smelling funky.  Additionally, they keep your only sling that you own dry.

We didn’t cover a lot of ground, there wasn’t any running, the mumble chatter came and went as the legs allowed.  Most importantly, 3 men were able to come out and support each other and receive support from others in a setting that encourages men to build each other up (#ISI).  To the men who came out in the cold rain this morning, knowing exactly what was going to happen (#LEGDAY!!!), thank you.  And to all of those who have been checking on us and praying for us, the three unwise men, thank you.  Eternally grateful.

To sum it all up, put your faith in God and when that truly happens you’ll find that he will always provide.  His son, Jesus, overcame the grave…why would we ever think that he couldn’t help us overcome our problems?  He has a plan for us (Jeremiah 29:11) and he is the way, the truth, and the life (John 14:6), just have to trust in him and grow our faith.
