Started off my Sunday by waking up too early. No clue why I woke up at 2-ish am on a Sunday. I do it enough during the week maybe that was why. I went back to bed til. 8:00 am.
Only thing I wanted to get done work-out wise was a 50 miler. The route I used ended up being 50.2. How is that?? Pretty nifty. I actually pushed a bit around 35 miles into it too. I attacked some hills, and got my speed up higher than I thought for a steady incline. Like I said I don't push much. :) I am lazy, and I am not competitive. Don't think I ever had the killer instinct. I like having fun though. That being said I don't remember ever losing a tennis match, or ping pong match even though I rarely play either. Haven't played tennis in a couple years, or ping pong for that matter. You know in H.S. I was more of a afraid to lose type of guy instead of needing to win. I was afraid of feeling the pain of losing.
In fun soccer games I was probably a better goalie than my brother John, but he was the goalie for a time during real games. I couldn't handle the stress of giving up goals. I cried a lot during little league baseball games too, when I gave up runs pitching. I was not the most courageous kid I guess you would say.
Courage finds us though. When we flipped my car outside of St. Louis 4-times. I was the one who got out to make sure everyone was o.k. We were...probably cause we were all relaxed sleeping.... even the driver. Something about drinking a lot the night before and making the trip from Normal, IL to St. Louis to go up the arch and drive back with no sleep. Yep we partied in College. I was, and am stupid as far as that goes. I like having fun.
As far as my life has gone past College I was picked to see some more scary stuff. Stuff I would not have had the courage to face without God, stuff I barely had the courage to face with God. Even this morning I thought of my future. I know I have to face some more scary stuff. I think it is Psalm 43 that helps me with that. Doesn't it say something "I have no fear thou art with me" I may have the number wrong, but what I will go through I will have help. I share with no one, although many will know eventually.
Okay a couple things about my bike ride more. Did I get off track??? Knee hurt again during my bike ride. I also have to bring my road bike in, it makes noises. :) spoke off too. boooo!! I ride with music as much as possible. Safe or not I enjoy it...that being said my buds are jacked, and it was nice to hear forest noises when I turned off the music. hmmmm.
One other thing. The truth will come out of everyone. It has too. Can't keep it in. It isn't in your cards. :) It is in none of our cards. When you are ready though. God's will be done. :)
Sunday pictures!!! I know right... me with pictures. whoda thunk??? (whoda not a word????) hmmpf!!! (thunk is a word??? ) never knew that.
All has a story!! I look at the sky a lot. I love watching plants bloom. From Weekdays in February to Late May is quite a journey. Cat's are lazy, but not as lazy as my dog Jasmine!! Holy Crap is Jazz really lazy!! Salmon was my dinner and Orange Roughy for Lisa. I really am the only one who likes Salmon, and I love it. If I lived in Hawaii---never would cause I run--- I would be a vegetarian I bet. I could eat fish every day, but we rarely do in this house. I'd probably have to sneak out for a burger here and there though. I love burgers!!!! :)
That is it!!!
Hope you have a good one!!
