The One Where We All Lifted Blocks and Played with Fuzzy Yellow Balls

Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brothers to dwell together in unity. – Psalms 133:1

13 pax took the DRP today and posted in the gloomy confines of St. David’s Lutheran Church which F3Detention temporarily calls home. Notice was taken of the curve ball NoHelp threw at the pax on Tuesday, as he led an upper body beatdown. It became YHC’s duty to balance things out a little. Thursday became Leg Day. The pax “welcomed” the change. But with one condition –  just as long as the overhead press never makes an appearance during the next 45min. Sounds like NoHelp left a mark. He always does. YHC would make every effort to honor the plea (sorta). Moreover, work would be done.

Conditions: Humid and 73 deg (thick and balmy)

Excerpts on Courage from Manvotionals: Timeless Wisdom & Advise On Living The 7 Manly Virtues

YHC spoke briefly about there being much fear in the world we live today. It may be warranted or not. Life is for the living and our duty as men is to live courageously with stout hearts and be an example for our family and others to follow.

The courage we desire and prize is not the courage to die decently, but to live manfully. – Thomas Carlyle

Live as brave men and face adversity with stout hearts. – Horace

As to fighting, keep out of it if you can, by all means. When the time comes, if it ever should, that you have to say “Yes” or “No” to a challenge to fight, say “No” if you can – only take care you make it clear to yourselves why you say “No.” It’s a proof of the highest courage, if done from true Christian motives. It’s quite right and justifiable, if done from a simple aversion to physical pain and danger. But don’t say “No” because you fear a licking, and say or think it’s because you fear God, for that’s neither Christian nor honest. And if you do fight, fight it out; and don’t give in while you can stand and see. – on Fighting by Thomas Hughes
