“58 and feeling great!”

“58 and feeling great!”

Those were the words of my dear dad when I called to check on his birthday experience. He also shared with me that he can now get his boots back on, which means that he’s recovered from some recent ‘bangs ups’ out there on the road! Just shy of turning 58 years of age, this wild cowboy was recently participating once more as a contestant after many years of retirement. He says he may have finally rode his last… but I certianly won’t be betting on it. As Garth Brook sang, “he just can’t quit this thang they call a rodeo!” LOL

Since he’s out there on the road traveling, he celebrated his birthday with no family around. That certianly didn’t stop this cowboy from having fun though! He took himself out bowling and to play some pool, two of his other favorite activities. Because of the Joy of Jesus he’s often cheerful no matter what, but I know he would have enjoyed showing me up on the pool table if I could have been there and that he missed all of his children today.

When I called, he was on his way to get ready (in prayer) to minister at yet another rodeo. Yes, my dad is a “travelin’ rodeo preacher man” , and a wonderful one at that. I’m very grateful to have a God-loving and God-fearing father who taught me all about Jesus. I miss him, as it’s been a year now since I’ve last visited him (for his birthday), just before I moved even farther away. LOL It reminds me, how I can’t wait till I get back to Texas… Yeeehaaaaww!!!

I leave you to enJOY these AWESOME messages from my amazing Dad:
