May I run

May I run the race before me, Strong and brave to face the foe, Looking only unto Jesus As I onward go.

John Wayne, Johnny Cash and John Deere

My sweet, baby James loves the song Way Out Here. Every time we get into the car with the radio on he asks for his favorite. Tonight we spent the evening visiting with good friends.  After saying our good-byes,  I started the van and the radio began to play. Just like clockwork, James asked for his favorite. I told him I could make no promises to hear it on the way home, but he could pray, and if it was God's will maybe he would hear it. James is our prayer warrior. He prays regularly, and he reminds me of his father when he prays. He bowed his head there in his carseat and asked God to play his favorite song on the radio. Needless to say, I was a bit concerned. What if his song didn't play?

I fretted for nothing! Much to our surprise, the very next song was Way Out Here. James was extremely happy and I was in shock. Sarah immediately turned to him and said, "Pray for Hans* to win on Tuesday." Just like clockwork, Sarah turned the conversation to politics, because that's her favorite. James has been praying for Hans all summer and fall.

Please vote on Tuesday!

*Candidate for State Rep. for whom we have been campaigning this year.
