Greetings to you on this beautiful day. This morning, I (Joan) took a bike ride with Brad in our neighborhood. Brad is a very accomplished bicyclist and I am not. I am out of shape and not afraid to admit it. Brad usually rides 20+ miles on an average day. Me? Today, I rode 6 miles today, huffing and puffing all along the way. I have to give credit to my wonderful husband. He never left my side and was constantly encouraging me to keep going. The Lord is like this with us. He constantly tells us He will never leave or forsake us. And just about the time we are ready to give up, He gently pushes us to go deeper with Him.
