The weather was beautiful today. A 50 degree day in January with spotty sunshine is a good day to get some exercise on the bike. So I came home from work, told my bride I was hitting the road, dressed warm and took a short ride of seven+ miles. It was a good easy, relaxing pace. I needed it.
There has been more than a little stress this past month and it was good to have 30 minutes of wind, and air, and fields waiting for Spring. For me, saddle time on the bike is time to think and pray and reflect on what is happening in both my life and the church. It is time to start thoughts that will one day produce greater glory for the King.
Here’s a thought to guide the heart in the New Year from Augustine.
“He loves Thee too little
who loves anything together with Thee
which he loves not for Thy sake.”
The Confessions of Augustine
