Random Thoughts,etc.

First of all, let me invite you to Trinity Church on Sunday March 13th at 6:00pm for my presentation on the cross country bike trip. I promise I will try to keep it interesting.

From Alistair Begg's book, Made for His Pleasure comes this great quote from John Calvin "Man never achieves a clear knowledge of himself unless he has first looked upon God's face, and then descends from contemplating Him to scrutinize himself." Maybe another way of putting it is that perhaps we spend too much time contemplating who we are without contemplating whose we are.

Stopped by EmbroidMe and dropped riding shirts and a cap off to have the Amanda Gives Back patches sewn on. Finished getting all the business cards separated and ready for the trip. The cards promote the web site and this blog in case people are interested in following this blog.

Rode 31 miles today indoors, 31 outside yesterday and 104 for the week. Will try to get another 150 or so in before leaving March 24th for the trip. Stopped by Target and Staples to add miscellaneous things for the trip.

Went to Logan's tonight with my siblings and their families and shared a little bit about my trip. I really appreciate their interest and support. I had a good friend from the church, Jack, offer to drive me down to Indy to spend the night with my daughter before flying out the next day. His generosity means I won't need to leave my car there for who knows how long. Talked to the South Bend Tribune and they are interested in doing a story on my trip. Cool! There probably will be a short story simply announcing the trip before I leave and then a more complete story once I return. It will appear in the community or local section of the Tribune whenever they decide to run it.
