Started the day off right; doughnuts, the breakfast of happiness.
We are in the city of Altus, OK
for the night. We have traveled today around 375 in miles, arriving here at around 5:30pm.
We crossed into Texas on some two lane back road and crossed our way through the pan handle on into OK.
The long flat, boring, straight back roads are very unpopulated and gives way to much thinking, much meditating and prayer too.
We wrestled with some cross winds. We neither one even mentioned it. We laughed as we agreed; after the monstrosity of the winds (25-35 mph with 50 mph gusts) we battled a few days ago, upon leaving Hoover Dam all the way to Flagstaff Arizona, it will be a long time before a few crosswinds shakes our boats.
Of course I have no high points of interest to share from today’s journey’s. Barren land, lots of fields, farm equipment; although there is a particular farm contraption that I find fascinating. I’ll google up a picture of it.
I tell Al – I think we could drive right under one of these. 🙂
The giant wind mills.
I really worked at getting this particular picture on the way by – the small ole wind mill was spinning diligently serving its purpose while the bigger ones on either side it, they were facing the wrong direction and not spinning at all. Many of the big ones were facing the right direction and spinning strong.
5 Jesus answered, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God.
6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
7 Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’
8 The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear its sound, but you do not know where it comes from or where it goes. So it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit.”
Nicodemus; he ask all the right questions for all the world of people that came after him needing the same questions answered.
Freedom from sin – Freedom to spin with our purposes in Christ.
I do follow a very fascinating fellow. And we are well over 5000 miles together on this trip.
Yeah – still not stopping at the state signs. They don’t have them on the 2 lanes we cruise on. Some of them have been on bridges and some just too risky. So …..I fabricate my own now. 🙂
Oh WOW – it will be a full 8 hours of riding tomorrow.
ALWAYS bittersweet that last day of riding.
Sweet as in – Home Sweet Home
Bitter – The journey comes to an END.
