old friends...

Do you ever think about the friends you have had for a very long time?  How is it that you have come to know and trust them so well?  What does it take to get to really know someone?  Most likely it is because you have spent a lot of unselfish time together and have shared many life experiences.  It works the same way with Jesus.  The relationship will only grow by spending time with Him.  Trust only grows from unselfishness.

Philippians 3:14 I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.

John 14:12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.  13 And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14 If ye shall ask anything in my name, I will do it. 15 If ye love me, (do all of the above).

James 4:3 Ye ask, and receive not(?), Because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts.

To catch a thief...

Side tracked cleaning up today by the silly electric assist bicycle I bought 6 years ago and only rode about 10 times.  Since it is all part of the big plan, I guess it was OK.  Decided I should extract the motor for some other project, and fix up the bike to give away to some kid who might appreciate it.

Something (I suspect racoon) has been getting into the greenhouse overnight and shredding range feed bags.  Set up the game cam to hopefully find out who it is.  Next will be to figure out how they are getting in.

muscle memory

Nice cool/calm morning.  Decided to go through all the motions with my flying machine (without actually taking off) to keep up the muscle memory for when I am ready to fly again.  Trying to schedule a long training session in November.  Still starts right up and runs smooth.  Nice thing about my unit requiring 100LL avgas is that it has a very long shelf life.  Got in 2 hours of kiting in this morning and another hour at sunset.  For the first time in all my practice sessions, the wind was light and steady tonight.  Was able to keep the wing up and stable (without have to run around) for minutes at a time instead of just seconds.

Starting another cleaning binge for the greenhouse and grounds.  No visits from the press coming up - I'm just tired of looking at all the mess.  82,89,63,0,B
