Mind – se.ques.ter | səˈkwestər | verb [ with obj.]
1. isolate or hide away (someone or something): Tiberius was sequestered on an island |
2. take legal possession of (assets) until a debt has been paid or other claims have been met: the power of courts to sequester the assets of unions.|
– legally place (the property of a bankrupt) in the hands of a trustee for division among the creditors: (as adj. sequestered) : a trustee in a sequestered estate.
This week is Pentagon Wars Week; no better way to kick it off than with sequester shenanigans. Me and my fellow Pentagon Pawns have been churning on questions late into the evening, “What happens if you cut out 18% from the budget?” Simple, “You have to do 18% less!”
The first definition is kind of funny. What is being hidden? The American people’s money? Not really sure.
I find the second definition ironic, “Placing the property of the bankrupt into the hands of a trustee.” Who are the bankrupt?  Congress, or the American people? Both? Who is the trustee? Not really sure here either.
If there is any reason to hit the gym this has got to be it.
Take care
Body – Strength

Work on squats and core strength.  If there is one exercise that I would say does more for your total body than any other…it is squats.  Don’t injure yourself, start light, do air squats if required (meaning no weigh, just you) but focus on good form. Eyes up, feet slightly wider than shoulder width, core tight, back naturally arched, chest up, lower until thighs parallel.

Spirit – The Love of God – Attributes of God by A.W. Pink
“God is love” (1 John 4:8). It is not simply that God “loves,” but that He is Love itself. Love is not merely one of His attributes, but His very nature.
