Billy Cross Invitational

So every year some friends of ours host the first cycling race of the season. It is lovingly referred to as the "BillyCross Invitational"!
This is a fun race where everyone gets together to hang out, ride, relax, eat good food & drink good drink, enjoy a bonfire, catch up with family, and just talk "bike shop"!
There is usually a costume involved in this race, to see how "hillbilly" you can be and it can be hillarious! Below are a few pictures from our adventures that day!

Billy Cross February 2010 at Robert and Sharons property:

"Petey" the peacock- newest addition to the Maye-Oakly clan!
Turkeys on the farm
Hubby-Zach, his contribution to the "hillbilly" theme was a Michelob jersey- lol!
Getting ready to run the course...
Notice the costumes- gotta love the baby mama...!

Getting ready for some grub post race!
Mingling while the food is coming out...
Lots of chili, stew and bbq!

I asked God...

I asked God to take away my bad habits. God said “no”.
It is not for me to take away, but for you to give it up.
I asked God to make me whole. God said “no”.
Your spirit is whole your body is only temporary.

I asked God to grant me patience. God said “no”.
Patience is a byproduct of tribulations; it isn’t granted it is learned.

I asked God to give me happiness. God said “no”.
I give you blessings; Happiness is up to you.

I asked God to spare me pain. God said “no”.
Suffering draws you apart form worldly cares and brings you closer to me.

I asked God to make my spirit grow. God said “no”.
You must grow on your own, but I will prune you to make you fruitful.

I asked God for all things that I might enjoy life. God said “no”.
I will give you life, so that you may enjoy all things.

I asked God to help me LOVE others, as much as He loves me.
God said… “Ahhhhh, finally you have the idea”.
