YHC mentioned to his M last night during the rain that there would likely be 4 PAX for his first Q in quite some time. YHC was delighted to wrong and was more than doubled-up when 9 All-Americans braved the chance of precipitation for some betterment. YHC also recently caught a documentary on cable about ZZ Top and thought the PAX need to hear more from them. Mumblechatter was light today with the PAX either trying to figure out the next exercise, counting their reps, or digging the music. The rain held off, the DRP was taken, and we got a no “Sharp Dressed Man” and “Leggs” set out of “that little ol’ band from Texas.” Playlist below.

Proverbs 31 is advice to King Lemuel from his mother. Pay particular attention to verses 10-31 where she tells him what to look for in a wife. As you read it, I invite you to reverse the pronouns and substitute “he” for “she” and think about your own relationship and marriage.
Proverbs 31 (New International Version)
31 The sayings of King Lemuel—an inspired utterance his mother taught him.
2 Listen, my son! Listen, son of my womb!
Listen, my son, the answer to my prayers!
3 Do not spend your strength on women,
your vigor on those who ruin kings.
4 It is not for kings, Lemuel—
it is not for kings to drink wine,
not for rulers to crave beer,
5 lest they drink and forget what has been decreed,
and deprive all the oppressed of their rights.
6 Let beer be for those who are perishing,
wine for those who are in anguish!
7 Let them drink and forget their poverty
and remember their misery no more.
8 Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves,
for the rights of all who are destitute.
9 Speak up and judge fairly;
defend the rights of the poor and needy.
Epilogue: The Wife of Noble Character
10 A wife of noble character who can find?
She is worth far more than rubies.
11 Her husband has full confidence in her
and lacks nothing of value.
12 She brings him good, not harm,
all the days of her life.
13 She selects wool and flax
and works with eager hands.
14 She is like the merchant ships,
bringing her food from afar.
15 She gets up while it is still night;
she provides food for her family
and portions for her female servants.
16 She considers a field and buys it;
out of her earnings she plants a vineyard.
17 She sets about her work vigorously;
her arms are strong for her tasks.
18 She sees that her trading is profitable,
and her lamp does not go out at night.
19 In her hand she holds the distaff
and grasps the spindle with her fingers.
20 She opens her arms to the poor
and extends her hands to the needy.
21 When it snows, she has no fear for her household;
for all of them are clothed in scarlet.
22 She makes coverings for her bed;
she is clothed in fine linen and purple.
23 Her husband is respected at the city gate,
where he takes his seat among the elders of the land.
24 She makes linen garments and sells them,
and supplies the merchants with sashes.
25 She is clothed with strength and dignity;
she can laugh at the days to come.
26 She speaks with wisdom,
and faithful instruction is on her tongue.
27 She watches over the affairs of her household
and does not eat the bread of idleness.
28 Her children arise and call her blessed;
her husband also, and he praises her:
29 “Many women do noble things,
but you surpass them all.”
30 Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting;
but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised.
31 Honor her for all that her hands have done,
and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.
Have a great rest of your week!
- If you missed today’s workout, you once again missed a sampling of products from YHC’s employer.
- The PAX were so good at Split Leg Jacks that we did it twice.
- After a rash of brick and block thefts, we seem to have been replenished.
