  The Hardest Thing To Do

You are riding down the road on your motor, enjoying the wind, minding your own business, and out of the blue, somebody changes lanes right in front of you, without signaling.

You see him in time to get out of the way, but the hardest thing to do in the whole wide world, is to keep your cool and resist kicking in the side of his car. The reason this is the hardest thing to do, is because you have this voice in your head screaming obscenities at the guy, which are then coming right out of your mouth word for word.

You know he is bigger than you, or at least his car is, but you still have this voice screaming in your head, and it is telling you to teach him a lesson he won’t forget.

We have all heard that voice, it is a voice that comes out when we get angry. It is a voice we know we need to control, and sometimes we do, and sometimes we just get after it.

We have all heard that voice. A voice we would rather not hear. God would like to help us with that voice. God can help with that voice by calming our anger and frustration. All we need to do is ask. All we have to say is “God help me!”, and he will. In that moment He will respond, he will take away the pain, and he will silence the voice.

  Memorial for Queenie in Lampasas
We went to the memorial service for Queenie today up in Lampasas. She was a friend, and a very active member of the Brotherhood of Bikers. She will be greatly missed. She leaves behind her husband Shorty, four adult children and many, many friends. It was a wonderful service, and I praise the lord that she is now riding the clouds with Jesus.

And finally, a picture of Randy our New Life Riders CMA chapter president, pointing out the disk lock that he put on his bike. Unfortunately he left the key at home. Definite binky material. I don't think he will do that again.


  Janice get glasses and jokes with Debbie

Janice bought herself some glasses, cause everything up close was getting blurry. Isn't it amazing how things change when you turn *&^*&^*&


Some of the details of my life, as I allow Christ to live out His life through me.
