A Mysterious Waitress

waitress2_300On Tuesday, my co-worker and I needed to attend a mid-morning meeting at a job site in far western Oklahoma.  We had our meeting and started back to Oklahoma City.  We decided to stop for lunch in Weatherford.  Weatherford is a nice town of just under 12,000 people about midway between the meeting and OKC.  We were not familiar with restaurants in town, but we knew we didn’t want to do a fast food franchise.

Will This Great Tradition Be Allowed To Continue?

Guard_300I am blessed to have been born and raised in America.  I am blessed to have traveled across this land and to have seen mountains, deserts, rolling plains, delta farmland, and even swamps.  I have seen the busy big cities and the small rural towns with their good days behind them.  I have seen the wealthy and the poor; the powerful and regular working guy.  I have seen the old and the young; those educated and those without schooling.  I have seen those with a dream and those who have lost their dream.  I have seen and listened to the “red and yellow, black and white” and yes, I think they are all precious Continue reading

My Prayer For America

RLincoln_Memorialomans 13:1 Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God.

 My prayer:

Thank you Father for the change in our government leadership. There was so many things that were against your principles being done. Our hope is not in Republicans or Democrats, but our hope is in you. I pray that civility will return to all Americans. I pray that laws would be passed that are based upon what is best for the country and not a political party. I pray for statesmen, like our founding fathers. I pray for families to be made stronger, which would result in our communities being stronger. I pray for us to treat others as we would want to be treated, regardless of gender or race. I pray we would once again live within our laws and not ignore certain ones we don’t like. I pray we would be gracious to others as you have been gracious to us. I pray we would recognize the sanctity of life. I pray for dignity for workers and respect for their willingness to help their fellow man in charity. I pray that common sense would be returned to our people. That our thought process will be based upon your Word. I pray in short, that we would be one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all. In Jesus name, amen.
