Good Rides, Cold Days

I’ve come to the conclusion that if on a regular basis you do not feel the overwhelming contrition that you are weak, God is great, and even the most common aspects of his beautiful creation are more than enough to kill you: You need to get out more.
We all do. It does a great deal to help place unseen things in perspective. For instance: In my daily modern routine of life, work and blessings I rarely am faced with the absolute reality of my own frailty, but given one half hour of basic exercise out in 15 degree weather, even prepared; I am aware of it completely. We should be able to agree that we, as human, are creatures of habitual comfort. You think not? You need to get out more. We are certainly missing a great deal of physical description of God’s attributes if we don’t.

So last week alone here are four things that gave me the above mentioned assurance;
1. Cold
2. Wind
3. Simple Exercise on Bicycle
4. Average but nonetheless Beautiful Country

I try to remind myself of this truth as often as I can. I encourage you to as well.
