I have a new grandson. He was born last thursday evening, his name is Corbin, which reminds me of Bruce Willis’ character Corbin Dallas in the movie The 5th Element. I don’t know if he will grow up to be quite as adventurous as Bruce was in that movie, but Corbin is definitely a good name for a future biker. Now all I have to do is convince his mother that it’s safe to ride with me. Maybe in a few years.

The arrival of new life is always exciting, but it is also a little scary, considering the wars and rumors of wars that plague our planet. Can we protect the littlest members of our society from such things? I don’t know, but I do know that we have to try our best, and part of that best, is training them up to be men and women of their word, respecting their elders and respecting each other. The Bible goes even further, telling us to love each other as we love ourselves. Loving others is not a small thing, and it’s not a suggestion. It was given as a command. Love God, and Love each other. Where am I going to get the power to do that? I think you can guess.
