The Thang

In high school we had this fundraiser with student council called Stop the Bop. Essentially, MMMBop by Hanson would be played in the hallways between classes until we hit the dollar-amount goal. For our version, the glorious song would played on repeat until the end of the workout. Sidekick immediately offered $$ for me to not play the song at all. I declined.

Each exercised built off the other in multiples of 5. So, it was 5 burpees then take a lap around the islands in the parking lot. Then, 5 burpees, 10 Big Boy Situps, take a lap. And so on…

The exercises….

Spoke about resting in the waiting. My wife and I have been a waiting adoptive family for a bout a year now. I continue to look forward to the day of when we are not waiting, but this takes away what God may be trying to teach me while I/we wait. I need to lean into the waiting, because I’m sure after two weeks with an infant, I will be wishing I had some more sleep.

Shared Psalm 31:14-15

But I trust in you, O Lord;
    I say, “You are my God.”
15 y times are in your hand;
    rescue me from the hand of my enemies and from my persecutors

Evita closed us out.
