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.


The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims his handiwork.

Psalm 19:1

“And I will give you a new heart and a new spirit I will put within you. And I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. And I will put my Spirit within you and cause you to walk in my statutes and be careful to obey my rules.” Ezekiel 36:26-27    So many promises we can hold dear as believers. Let this be a comfort.

Differences Between Daddy & Mommy Interaction

Here is a great simple instance where it can be undoubtedly said ‘There are differences between the marital sexes and the interaction they each have separately with their children.” Allow me to show you what I mean:

Here is a picture Christina posted from Wednesday, September 1, 2010:

Mommy interaction with Lincoln and a rainy morning.

And here is a picture I took of Lincoln & I later that day.

Gearing up for interaction with Daddy on a rainy afternoon.

Which led to this:

Lincoln Everett Weir

I'm outside in the rain! What an inconsiderate parent my Father is, yea!

So, you see, the interactions we each have with our children differs naturally, but both are very important to the development of the child.

From his Mother, he has learned to be cautious, concerned and not act in haste.

From his Father, he has learned that really all you need to do to get outside in a rain storm is buckle on a slicker and jump on a bicycle.

Both important viewpoints with which the child will use to grow his understanding of the things I can do with Mommy and the things I can do with Daddy.
