“For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.” – Ephesians 6:12-13
Here’s the conundrum…my wife is two weeks from her due date, and I was on call this weekend with my regular job, BUT, it was also one of the best days this summer had produced. Mid 70’s, bright blue sky, and Rage KaGe ready to put some miles on. What’s a boy to do. Compromise, that’s what you do.
Man there seems to be a lot of anxieties these days. We are in the middle of a pandemic, which has now caused an economic disaster, which has lead to record high unemployment, which means people can’t buy food or pay their bills and mortgage, and so on. Parents are trying to figure out if there child is going to school or not, and how do they continue to juggle all of that. Just thinking about everything the world is facing right now seems overwhelming.
Have you ever experienced true peace? Sometimes you only feel it for a minute, sometimes longer. No matter how long it is, it is one of the best feelings in the world. A lot of times I do not experience true peace. Don’t get me wrong though, I experience happiness and a lot of different emotions, but very rarely true peace.
Before I had even ridden a motorcycle, I knew that I liked them. I liked how they looked, I liked how they sounded, and I liked the idea of them. I read about motorcycles, and I talked to people about them…I had a pretty good understanding of everything pertaining to the entire motorcycle industry.
My first motorcycle was a beast. It was loud, it was fast, and it was a hack job. I think I fixed it more than I rode it. The speedometer didn’t work, the brake light didn’t work, not to mention you had to take half the bike apart to reach the battery and other vital components of a motorcycle.
