I got a wonderful story by e-mail this weekend that I simply had to share on my blog. Here it is:
A woman told her neighbor that she had seen a man driving a pick-up truck down the interstate and that a dog was hanging onto the tail gate for dear life!
She said if the pick-up truck driver hadn't been going so fast in the other direction, she would have tried to stop him.
A few weeks later, her neighbor saw that same truck in the parking lot at the Bass Pro Shop and took a picture of it.
The driver of the pick-up truck is a local taxidermist, with a great sense of humor!
And that "dog" is actually a coyote named Kyle! I learned that when I did a web search and found the website of the taxidermist .
As the world economy and our national economy are struggling, largely because of debt (ie. people spending money they don't have) and as our government votes on a spending bill of close to a trillion dollars we don't have, I think we all need to hold on for the ride of our lives. The Lord keeps sending us these reminders that our hope is not in people, but in Him.
"There aren't any big shots when it comes to servants of God. If you want to be in the limelight to serve, it's not service you're thinking about – it's recognition." - Dr. Drew Conley
"The only difference between a tax man and a taxidermist is that the taxidermist leaves the skin." - Mark Twain
