Merry Christmas!!!

Merry Christmas!!! Today has changed my life forever! I wish I would have taken pics of all the happy kids and parents today.

Before I say any more I will tell you what I am soooo Happy about.

Last night my Wife, Caylin and I helped load 400 or more bikes into 2 28 foot trailers. Well Caylin was there to test out the tricycles and I got some riding time in on a few BMX bikes. Becky helped bring the bikes to the dock doors with the others, while I got dirty stuffing bikes in the semi trailers. I had a great time helping Elves and More NEO, I hope they want my help next year? Most of the workers for Elves & More race bikes. So we had a great time talking about racing too. Stark Velo racers sure are awesome! Also 3 other guys came together to make Elves & More NEO what it is today. Thanks to Brian, Tim and Jim.

When I woke up today I knew it was going to be a great day! I know God looked at us and smiled today. I think God was happy with what we all did today. As we all prayed together before we headed out to surprise little kids. We all knew we were going to have a blessing at some point today.

This started out like a big Road race event. We had 5 or 6 cop cars stop traffic for us every where we went. Sort of like the Pres. has going to any event. We were in a bus and we had the semi trailor in front of us and Santa in a cop car behind us. The noise from the cop cars woke everyone up this morning. So much fun!!!

On the way to our stops we would share stories of what we witnessed and kids faces when they saw us. How some kids broke down and cried in front of us. It brings tears to my eyes seeing how happy it makes someone with a small gift. The gifts we all gave today will make a difference! It may not change the world but it sure has made A big difference in someones life today.

Elves & More NEO

Please Check out Elves & More NEO. I spent all day Saturday with some great people putting together bikes for children that can't afford anything for Christmas. I had a great time working with others and I still have sore muscles.
I was very happy to be a part of something great!
Thanks to all that made Elves & More NEO possible.

A very close friend sent this to me and I LOVE THEM for sending it to me. I don't have any one that I know of that has personally came up to me and said they don't like me because..... such and such. I do know that I am not perfect but right now I can honestly say that I Love everyone that I have ever come in contact with. I had one friend that I had battles with in high school and we are still friends to this day. I have not seen him in a long time but I know that we are cool. Sometimes I joke around and things get turned around real quick but I am easy to get a long with and am here if you need to talk, until God decides it is my time.


One morning you will never wake up. Do all your friends know you love them?

I was thinking...I could die today, tomorrow or next week, and I wondered if I had any wounds needing to be healed, friendships that needed rekindling or three words needing to be said.

Let every one of your friends know you love them. Even if you think they don't love you back, you would be amazed at what those three little words and a smile can do.

And just in case GOD calls me home before I see you again.......

My Prayer

Father you are so strong and miraculous. You are the Creator of everything. You can do all Things. Father you are a Mountain Mover!

Father forgive me for my sins Lord. I have sins that I am not proud of Lord... Just take all of my sins. Carry them for me Lord... Forgive me Now...

LORD I thank you for sending Jesus to die on the cross for all of us that accept your Son Jesus Christ into our lives. So that we may be forgiven through Jesus Christ as long as we take Him as our LORD and Savior. I thank you Lord that you are always with us even when we think you aren't. I thank you for listening to my prayer and forgiving me. Thank you for my life that I have. Thank you for the blessings of all I can do.

Lord please be with me, help me to focus more on you LORD. I pray that you help me to lose at least 17 more pounds in the next 3 months LORD if it be your will. Please Lord give me your strength at this time Lord. I pray Lord that others come to know you as I do, a Loving, Forgiving God that will always be with us. Even in times like these when I am struggling to do your will. I pray all these things in your name... Amen.

What I feel is the Right Choice

"Ok before you read this I have to say that I am not a Pro Racer. As a matter of my opinion I should be a cat 3 due to me being 200 pounds. The USCF should have a Crit and Road license. I however have been blessed by God to beat some of the best Pro racers. If it be The LORD'S will I hope to be ready by the end of May for my first NRC event in a Team GodSpeed uniform. I just Thank The LORD and Team GodSpeed for this chance in my life to do more than one thing I love to do. The next 3 sentences are from Team GodSpeed, this is on Team GodSpeed's website."

Team GodSpeed has come to an agreement with Jeremy Grimm to race for Team GodSpeed for the 2007 year.
Jeremy is a seasoned Cat 1 pro cyclist who most recently raced for Abercrombie and Fitch Cycling Team.
Jeremy describes his decision to race for Team GodSpeed :
"As I typed in my heart was pounding and my eyes were open as big as they could be. It was the same feeling you get when you know you’re getting or going to do something great. You still have chills talking about it after it has happened. For example; when I got my first road bike at the age of six. Spending time with family you only get to see once a year. Getting baptized at the age of 12. Watching a DC Talk concert with thousands of other kids your age. Getting my first car, a green Dodge Omni with manual transmission, I wish I still had it today. The first time I saw Becky. Our Wedding Day, seeing her in the wedding dress and the feeling of no one else in the church but us. Any day without Lyme Disease. The day our daughter Caylin was born. Giving something to someone that you know they will like. Friends that do something for you that you could never do. I can now add Team GodSpeed to the list of things I am excited about.
Times like these are things we will never forget. I am excited to meet everyone on Team GodSpeed just as I was before and after I met Russ. My decision was made with ease just by reading what Team GodSpeed does for others on the website. I pray that the Lord will guide me in what He wants me to do for Team GodSpeed and I pray the same for you."
