Living Life



Today seemed to be unfolding just like any other, another day on the bike with hours of snowy singletrack behind us. This was of course until I seriously came face to face with death in a matter of a moment. I had looked both ways on Hwy 36 but had failed to see a black SUV that was heading my way at about 65 mph. With only a couple pedal strokes I lined myself up perfectly in front of the SUV which blended in with the backdrop of the road. This could have been my final moment but I am thankful someone was looking over me....



I felt the brush of the car as it flew by and nothing... I was completely untouched thanks to the driver's quick thinking. (Bezecny and Ranno had front row seats) The rest of my day feels like a gift and I can't even begin to explain the range of emotions and thoughts that have followed. Each moment of our lives is a gift from God and I hope each of you lives your day as if it was your last..... Best of Rides.

that's why it is so important for everyone to know Jesus Christ as our only Savior. Events occur which are unexpected, so it's best to always be prepared to meet Christ. Enjoy the gift of life

"...the LORD delivers him in times of trouble. The LORD will protect him and keep him alive. And he shall be called blessed upon the earth." Ps 41:1-2

Not a day goes by that I don't pray for God's hedge of protection to surround you and your sister. Praising Him for answered prayer. It was so good to talk to you today. God has a plan for your life........

I love you xxxxx00000
