Ride4Grace 2011

The 3rd annual Sufficient Grace Ministries Ride4Grace was on Sunday, August 21st. Anthony and I made the trip back up to the northern region to go to it.

We had a small number of bikes show up and the weather started off really nice. We were ready to get out there and start riding! We said prayer first of course for a safe ride!!

As you can see in the pic below as soon as we started out it looked pretty ominous. Those dark clouds followed us pretty much the whole time. Felt a couple sprinkles once and it got chilly through one part of the ride but we managed to outride it.

It was around a 77 mile ride (shortened it from a 100 mile ride) and we stopped in McComb to fill up on some gas. As it usually is in small towns, people knew people who were at the gas station and got into some chit chat.

Took a couple of videos during the bike run. It’s pretty noisy with the sounds of the bikes and the wind.

Coming back into the parking lot I saw Kelly standing outside with her camera ready to snap away and welcome us back……with hot dogs and ice cream! I’m all about that!

I wish I could’ve stayed longer and talked with Kelly but Anthony and I had to leave to start heading back home since it was already getting late and we had a 2 1/2 hour drive ahead of us. But I really enjoyed hearing Kelly talk about her visit to The Haven Network when she visited the Chicago area. Wish I could’ve heard even more! You can read her post about it here!

Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. Ephesians 4:29
