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  Therefore, since we are […]

It’s early Friday morning. The house is quiet – except for when Grizzly (Adam’s dog) jostles Jayden’s cheerleader doll. Then there is a moment of apprehension as I fear that everyone will awaken.

I have gotten more than a few notes chiding me for not showing pics of my new girl (see above).  She is a 2011 Surly LHT.  And I really love the black paint job and accoutrements.  I’m still waiting for a front rack.  But otherwise, she is outfitted with everything I need.  I especially love the […]
