VP's Verisimilitudes, A Good Year
Well, here we are in December as I write my last Verisimilitudes article. Yes, that's right, I won't be VP next year, y'all elected me President. Randy is taking a break from officer ship, and I think we all owe him a big thank you for the job he has done these past five years. It is kind of hard to believe it has been five years, a lot has happened, but the chapter has run pretty smoothly. If I were to tally our chapter's results during these years, I know I have personally seen several people come to Christ and the number of people we as a chapter have seen accept Christ, I believe, measures in the dozens. I am not one to keep track of numbers, but people do count to God, and I find that very encouraging. This must be about the fifth year we participated in the ROT rally as well, with Randy's leadership for the years we worked registration. It has grown, and the CMA's participation in it has grown, due at least in part to all our efforts. Many thousands of people are touched in a multitude of ways during that week in May. I have seen some pretty exciting things happen around my house as well. Debbie has been working part time at Hill Country Hawgz, now renamed Hill Country Motorcycles, for over a year now, and she is about 70% of the way to finishing a complete ground up rebuild of a 1973 Shovelhead FL. It has gone from "Bike in a Box", to bare frame, and back to rolling chassis with bottom end and transmission installed. It has been cleaned, balanced, powder coated and painted. Not bad progress for a year of learning, building, buying parts and oh yes, changing lots of tires and painting lots of cylinders and all the other things the "new-be" does at a motorcycle shop. Did I mention run for lunch? It has been a good year in so many ways, I can't even include them all here, but I think you get the idea. I look forward to this coming year, more poker runs, more rallies, more new friends, more motorcycle building. I am truly thankful for the blessings God has poured out upon us, how about you?
