Vrooom Vrooom

Well, it's been quite a while since I posted anything. I've just been busy with life. We're opening a new youth center where we live and it is quite a lot of work. But I have been inspired to make a purchase I hope will be sound. A new motorcycle! Not quite a Harley, but a Kawasaki 900cc Vulcan.... which is a cruiser. My wife has gently eased me into this, as she enjoys riding as much as me. I haven't been on a bike in 30 years, but I think I'll be alright......after all isn't it like riding a bike? I felt so much guilt for spending so much money....but then doesn't God want us to enjoy the life He has given us? I am not slack concerning those ministries in which I am involved and I will work as hard as always at what I do. But now on my days off....Vroom!!!!.....I will have the wind in my helmet...(no helmet law here, but I'm not as wild and crazy as I once was).

So I hope this doesn't sound like I'm trying to justify this bike or assuage some guilt left over from my Catholic upbringing, but rather, in way of explanation show some sound reasoning for once again living life with just a bit more excitement . When the colors begin to appear this fall, I will view them from a new perspective, riding ever so much closer to those colors, although they may appear as an impressionist painting, blurred and melted together.....see you next time!

I think that's a good purchase! With gas prices being what they are, something that provides entertainment and fun, and is gas friendly, too? What a deal!

I envy you. (In a nice, Christian-type way, of course!) I haven't been on a motorcycle in many, many years.

Enjoy your new ride!

How great! You two need a little R&R to recharge every now and then. I'm glad to see that you're using that renewal time wisely!

We love you. Be careful.

And the army guy is where? No posts for almost a year. I keep checking back, hoping...

He's probably out on that cycle of his!
