Andy, Joey and I want to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving!
In Hebrews 13:5, it says, He will never leave you nor forsake you. For that reason, we have a lot to be thankful for. Knowing that as Christians, God’s covenantal love is upon us is a real reason for joy. This means we are His own private possession, for which, I’m truly thankful.
I was getting ready to download some photos from my camera and this one popped up in iPhoto. I had to share it with you: Copyright TimothyJHammons2013.
For this shot of Andy, I discovered a new technique and realized that the technique I discovered is the same one used by a friend who is a professional. I tried to get her to share it with me, but like magicians, a lot of photographers keep their secrets close to the chest. Given that, I won’t tell you the technique.
This has been me lately. I’m just hanging on! I’ve tried to write, both blog and book, but can’t seem to get the words to flow. I feel stuck on a treadmill on the deck of a sinking ship with the subbing I’ve been doing lately. I need to find a real job, and soon. So that is what is taking my time and energy.
I know many of my readers have been through this. While there are many things that are worse in the world, it’s still not easy. I know only the LORD can lift me out of this pit. So I am waiting for Him to do so. If I climb out on my strength, I will probably just fall deeper into the pit itself.
For the first time since becoming an Aggie back in 1987, I finally got to see the Fightin’ Texas Aggie Band march to the stadium. I had my boys with me and they loved hearing the band and seeing Reveille VIII.
We got a quarter inch of rain today and praised The Lord for it. This area has been in a drought for about ten years. You can see from the photo how low my father’s front pond is. The water line is well below the damn. We need quite a bit more to break the drought.
Since it was raining I took the boys to see Monsters University. No patience to type a review. All three of us liked the movie.
Afterward we went to Independence Coffee to get a pound of coffee ground up since mine is in storage. The store manager got both boys involved in the downtown Where’s Waldo game. We spent the next two hours looking for Waldo in the participating merchants and had a blast. However much fun we had, it didn’t lead to the sales of any Where’s Waldo merchandise.
Lord willing, this time tomorrow I will be loading up the U-Haul truck with all my worldly goods and possessions in order to head back to Texas. Given that, this is my last post for a while unless I can figure out that app on my iPhone and use it to post while in the hotel tomorrow night.
The over all point is that the number of posts that I make for the next few weeks will probably diminish. Here a few photos of my destination. This little cottage is where I will be living for the next few months.
For the first time in my 18 months of Golfing at the Spring River Golf Course, the river actually had water in it, and two of my golf balls! I’ve hit golf balls in the river before, but given that there is no water there 99.9 percent of the time, it’s not a problem. After an inch of rain, it has water! Golfers beware, the water hazard is now… for the next few days, a true water hazard.
I like this photo of Joey because he reminds me of the Yell Leaders at Texas A&M University. My Aggie friends will know what I mean.
