Heading Out Twenty minutes later, we both had our hair pulled back, headgear in place, and layers of clothing/coats on. It was time to lock the house up and head for the garage.
Excitement began to course through me as I threw my leg over my gleaming, red bike and settled into the seat. One thought kept flashing off and on in my mind like a neon sign,"I get to ride my bike! I get to ride my bike!" My hand closed on the ignition switch and turned it on. My instrument lights flashed on. Gently, I pressed the engine off switch to engine start position and then pressed the start switch. Immediately my bike's motor fired up and began to rumble. "Thank you Jesus for letting me ride my bike." flashed through my brain as I began to back my rumbling bike out of the garage.
Two minutes later, Bill and I were sitting side by side on our now warmed up, idling motorcycles. We flashed big smiles at each other, our left feet tapped our shift levers into first gear in unison, and we pulled out of the driveway in single file.
What a wonderful moment to give thanks to the Lord for a beautiful December day, to give thanks for my health, and to give thanks for all the blessings He has bestowed upon Bill and I in 2014. And we did.
We both enjoyed the opportunity to take a two hour ride on December 26, in central Missouri and we will be smiling for days!
