The road we travel

It is interesting to me, the road we travel.  We all wish it would be a clear shot with the destination clearly marked; no valleys, no hills and no curves.  For most, that is not the case.  It has taken me a long time to discover that “life is a journey, not a destination.”

The wind aided in the fast spread of an afternoon fire in Hartley County on Sunday, November 28.  Once sparked, the fire moved rapidly across U.S. Highway 87 toward a residence right within its path.

Special to the Texan

Dalhartans can look forward to paying more on their electric bills beginning in February. The Dalhart City Council passed on the third reading and voted to approve Ordinance 2010-22, a franchise agreement with Southwestern Public Service (Xcel Energy), that will increase the current franchise fee from three percent to five percent. Councilman Kurtis Thomas stuck with his position and voted against the ordinance, as he had done at the previous two readings. The ordinance is scheduled to go into effect on January 31, 2011.

Trust and Obey

On a recent Sunday, I noted the theme of our praise and worship songs were about trusting.  In fact, one of them was the old familiar hymn I heard my mother sing in the kitchen; Trust and Obey.  I hope you are able to recall the words to that hymn; “When we walk with the Lord in the light of His Word, what a glory He sheds on our way. When we do His good will, He abides with us still and with all who will trust and obey. Trust and obey, for there’s no other way to be happy in Jesus, than to trust and obey.
