Sunday night

Last night we went to church in Lamar With Ronnie and Lyn,  The pastor said" The Jesus you know Will determine what kind of Christian life you live."  I like that.

Sunday afternoon

 It was like stepping back into time for me to see the home where I was raised.
We went by the ranch where I was raised as a kid South of Brandon.  Terry and Janet own the ranch now.  The tornado of 2012  Destroyed part of the house , so they have remodeled and built on.  They graciously Showed us their home.
