Sometimes I feel like this single Springtime wildflower down by the fence. Like I’m trying to hold on through the approaching frost and shine with what God gave me.
Traveling on two wheels has many advantages. A single track vehicle is easier to maneuver on rough roads. Potholes, debris and heaves can usually be easily avoided unlike a dual track vehicle. I compare a motorcycle ride to believing and trusting in our Lord Jesus Christ. He’s my single track vehicle. If I make an effort to anticipate the troubles ahead, remain focused on His Holy Word, sometimes these scary things in the road can be avoided and momentum can be maintained. When I suddenly hit a heave in the asphalt it causes me to throttle back a bit. It’s the same as when there are troubles in my life. There can be a death, a financial downturn, a medical emergency, a sudden cruelty from a friend. These can cause me to throttle back temporarily just to get my bearings. But if I look to the Cross and keep my eyes on He who created me, the road ahead isn’t quite so scary, dark or bumpy. Bad things still happen but they’re not so dramatic. And I give God the glory for this.
The weather has been so beautiful lately and with gas prices eating into our meager budget it was deemed sagacious to run most of our errands with the motorcycles from now on. Even attending Church which is over 25 minutes from our home. Saves big time on the gas bill. Hopefully this will help us survive the approaching storm of want from the pervasive Communism that has taken over young minds and our Government. I’m thankful our congregation and Pastor are cool with our mode of transportation. I know, I shouldn’t care, but it is nice when there are no cruelties about such things. No one cares what one wears or drives. We love each other just the same as it should be according to His Holy Word. Thanks to their good examples I try to also be very kind in my dealings with others.
Today was a glorious Spring-like day, so we cranked up the metal steeds to shop at The Pig (Piggly Wiggly). Since we had started eating Keto (no sugar/low carbs) about two years ago, the grocery bill has been greatly reduced and we’re eating better. It’s easy to shop every week too ‘cause there’s very little to buy but we’re never “hungry”. We save so much money by not buying processed foods or sugary treats. Our health has greatly improved too.
Thank you for putting the kickstand down. I hope the rest of your day is blessed with a smooth road ahead. 💚
