First, this Post is for the Brotherhood and Sisterhood of Bikers. That’s as in BIKES not bicycles. And, this post is for everyone who mows a lawn, whether it’s your own or you do it to make a living. This morning after coffee at one of the local liars watering holes, I needed to run an errand–on my bike. Bike, my friends, NOT a bicycle. As I was going along the street, a local lawn service was mowing and blowing the grass into the street. It was still wet, and I felt my back tire slip a little–thus this little post. I have several different Categories for my writing, and the default is set at Kingdom of God. I also have a Personal Category.
I was about to unclick the Kingdom of God Category, when I began thinking (I know, that’s a dangerous thing to do) that this IS a Kingdom issue. I say it is because Citizens of the Kingdom are called to be people who show consideration to all others. Besides, on my ride into town this evening, I’ve been inspired to write another article. Watch for it next week. Now, to my purpose and message for tonight, and hopefully, for the rest of your lives.
PLEASE DO NOT MOW SO THAT THE GRASS BLOWS ONTO THE ROAD OR STREET. WHEN IT IS WET, IT CAN CAUSE A MOTORCYCLE TIRE TO SPIN OR SLIP. WHEN IT’S DRY, IT BLOWS IN OUR EYES, CREATING A HAZARD. PLEASE THINK OF US BIKERS WHEN YOU MOW!!!! Rant over….
