At the Gates

While sitting at the gates for a race, we sit there thinking through every hill, every table-top, and every turn. We run the start through our heads making sure that our bodies will react with precision and every ounce of skill that we possess. The amount of concentration taking place at the starting gate is so thick you can smell it. And when that gate drops we push with every spark of energy we have to make the best run of our lives. On the other hand, we wake up in the morning, take our showers, eat breakfast and get dressed for work, with very little enthusiasm. When we get to work, we approach it with distaste and mediocrity. We slowly push ourselves through our day trying to utilize as little energy as we can get away with. When we get home we straiten up the house and plop our selves down in front of the Television for an evening of slacking off, only moving from our Lazy-Boy to refill our glass of tea…and even that takes weighing our options.

The questions: Which way do we approach our relationship with Jesus and the path that he places before us? Do we approach it the way we approach the big race, with excitement and our absolute best? Or do we approach it with a slothful dislike as we approach a job that we really don’t want to do? Think on it.

Getting Back on Target

For the last few post, I’ve been off the target for this blog…I’ve become very passionate about the ADA Tour de Cure and BMX4C. Which by the way…we hit our $1000.00 goal for the Tour de Cure! Okay…back on target…

The purpose of this blog is to answer the questions, “Why do Christians…?” There’s several ways that this question can end, and I’ll make sure that my next post hit’s the blog’s mark. Thanks.

Coming Soon...BMX4C!

I’ll be starting a new Blog very soon. Don’t worry; I’ll still be posting on this one. We got some great news the other day. J and I have started BMX racing…yes at 35 (almost 36) years of age…I’ve started BMX racing. J will be racing, and I figured, if I’m at the track all day with him, I might as well be racing. ANYWAY...back to the point of this blog entry.
We’ll be starting a BMX Racing Ministry…and it was J’s idea! We’ll be providing bikes, helmets, jersey’s, gloves and NBL Licensing fees for 10 – 20 Kids in low income families or foster care. On a whim, I sent an email to SE Bike Company (BMX Bike Manufacture) to see if they would be interested in participating. In less the 24 hours I got a call from SE’s local area representative, not only do they want to help, but they are very excited about the project! It’s so amazing, how God opens doors for us when we are following His will! I’ve started putting together a lot of what we need, the Board of Directors, By-laws, Name copy right, 501C3…BMX4C is hitting the ground running (errr…Biking). We’ll still need prayer support, so one of the biggest ways people can help right now, is keep praying for BMX4C to be a success! I’ll be putting together a BMX4C website and blog very soon, so you’ll be able to track our ministry progress. I’ll try to get some pictures next weekend from the track with J and I. See y’all later!
