On Eagle's Wings

On Eagle's Wings
He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Isaiah 40:29-31

Ticket to Ride

Yes sirree!! Dear Heart and I got our tickets to ride!
Thank you FreeDigitalPhotos.net
He said: "Oh boy! I can hardly wait!"
(big smile and rubbing his hands together)
She said: "I think this means it is really gonna happen."
(biting her nails and fighting back fear)
Two more weeks. The countdown begins.
When I signed up for an overnight motorcycle trip,
the date seemed far, far away.
you know ... something that might never really happen.
Things do change day to day, don't they?
(Maybe something would happen like not enough people signed up,
maybe snow, maybe rain
it would be cancelled, etc.)
What this means for me?
I will be sitting behind Dear Heart on a big Can Am Roadster
riding from Dallas to Jefferson, Texas.
(suffering helmet hair again, small space for packing, and the like)
Another First!
So far, I have ridden in various
modes of transportation including, but not limited to:
Airplane (with Dear Heart as pilot), train, floatplane,
canoes, rafts, jet boat, ship, gyroplane,
(camel, horse, elephant)
Am I a sucker or what?

This one is for a great cause. :-) 

2012 Ride For Life — Re-Union Ride

We will ride for the unwed mother, the scared teenager, the grieving widow,
the rocky marriage, the jobless, the lonely, the anxious, and the hopeless.
Ride for Life is a ministry outreach of Hope for the Heart.

I would say "take pictures" but I'd rather you just hang on. :) Can't wait to hear all about it!

Oh- Good luck- We used to ride when we were younger. MyHero had brain surgery several years ago and does not have the balance needed to ride anymore. I am actually kind of jealous!!! xo Diana

Wanda said...

Wonderful, wonderful.... I'm so jealous. Is there room for one more on that bike...HaHa.

You go Girl....and come back with lots of pictures.

That is just wonderful. I have always wanted to go on a motorcycle ride - that is on my bucket list. Is your husband a motorcycle expert and you are going along for the ride or are you both doing something new? Have fun, but be careful. sandie
