One Road. Two Ways.

I turned this outfit around on a two-lane highway!

On one of the more memorable truck driving trips I took with the school district came in the fall of 2011. I drove the high school’s band to the famed Ratliff Stadium in Odessa, TX (remember “Friday Night Lights”?). At the end of a long Saturday, I set out for the hotel a few miles down the road in Midland. For reasons I still cannot explain, I made a wrong turn at a key intersection. The road was right.

She makes a great point.

Certainly God knew this when he inspired Moses to write them down on stone tablets. (more…)
