I Love You Enough . . .

All right, yesterday I told you about my husband, Mark, buying his toy—a Harley motorcycle. Plus being his sweet self, he bought me a helmet so I could ride with him. YIKES!

My first ride out with him I clung to him like a leech on a leg. I almost drew blood by gripping his waist so tightly. He drove slowly, turning corners carefully. I began to relax---a little. Then suddenly, an elderly gentleman pulled out right in front of us. Brakes---heart pounding—no accident. UGH!

However, because my husband is passionate about this new hobby I stuck my butt on the seat again and again. Trying to follow the advice of Proverbs 19:14, “House and land are handed down from parents, but a congenial spouse comes straight from God.” (Proverbs 19:14, MSG) That will teach me to write a Bible study titled Perplexing Proverbs! Now I have to try to live it out in application.

Now after a couple of years, I can brag that I rode for six hours on the back of a Harley Hog. I listened to my i-pod and can honestly say I had a good time. Is it my favorite activity? No. Does my hubby appreciate my participation in his hobby? I hope so.

Who would have ever thought that me, Susanne, would be riding around on a Harley with a helmet and black leathers, listening to praise music, and wondering about God’s sense of humor? Not me!
