A day of surprises
July 3, 2024

By Rus Laven

Our ride today was a ride of surprises, unexpected things, most favorable and one not so good.

1. We had two days in a row of light winds in Nebraska and Iowa (new state today, crossing into Iowa).

2. We had great riding weather, slightly overcast with temps in the 70s

3. Iowa has hills, lots of roller hills, which was a nice change from the flatness of eastern Colorado and Nebraska.

4. We had mud today, real Iowa mud, bad enough we had to walk and carry our bikes through a half mile of mud (it was supposed to be a gravel road, but recent rains changed that). It was all part of the adventure and added some great stories and memories though at the time it was not fun.

5. A great dinner and facility provided by Clarinda Methodist Church.

Life is full of unexpected situations. I’m thankful that our Heavenly Father has them all under control even when we don’t understand, and things don’t make sense.

Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart and don’t lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths.
