Horsepower under restraint

DSC_0044• There is no replacement for bigger displacement.

• Grip it and rip it.

• Stomp the  pedal.

• Put the pedal to the metal, or thru the floorboard.

• Grab a handful of gas.

•Get in, shut-up and hang on.

•More H.P. does not stand for more Hewlett-Packard, or Harry Potter.

As I drove a 565 hp Cadillac CTS-V today to photograph for the internet, I wanted to do all the above even tell myself to get in already, shut myself up, hang onto the wheel and floor it ’til I hit Miles City.

Alas all I could do was drive from the parking lot at Rimrock GMC to the rear of the building.

300 ft of fame.

Maybe I should have gone to Miles City and back during my lunch hour.  After all the speedo went to 200 mph.  MPH sounds awful close to MHP, or Montana Highway Patrol.

They would have mistaken the car for a falling star hugging the interstate.

Restraint was the order of the day.  Even with the ability to smoke tires, leave the world in the dust and fly without wings.  One must bridle all those ponies or in this case, wild horses.

Humility is such that even though we are empowered with God power, and are sons and daughters of the creator we must live life with humility towards all men.  Restraint power is true humility.

Matthew 23:12 says:

Whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be exalted.

Pride is ugly and ruins a nice paint job.  Humility is a trait that impresses and draws people near to get a close look at the interior of the person.  What makes them tick, their answers for life and who guides them.

Stay humble and let God wax and shine.  He is our horsepower on high.
