After Saturday night’s Tracey Road Equipment Big Block Modified feature, Pat Ward said that the young guys are getting tougher and tougher to beat on a weekly basis.
When the checkers flew at the end of 35 laps, Ward showed he has no signs of slowing down anytime soon as he parked his Gypsum Express, Stadium International Trucks/LJL Kevlar Race Engines/ Bicknell/No.42p in victory lane.
Ward took the lead on lap 20 from Matt Hulsizer and never looked back in the caution free feature.
“If my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and restore their land.” – 2 Chronicles 7:14-15
Yes, it was only last week that I wrote concerning this scripture. In that column I asked the questions, “Where are the leaders, who fear God enough to say publicly that the only hope for our nation is to humble itself before God? Who is proclaiming that the true need in America is to turn from our wicked ways and to plead for mercy?”
Since writing that column I have become aware of an exciting movement within our city. Pastors and key church leaders have begun to meet weekly for the express purpose of, “crying out to God for a spiritual breakthrough.”
I’m getting discouraged by all the time I spend out-and-about, doing errands.
I make my lists diligently, expecting to do my errand run and get back in a reasonable amount of time. Often, I do. More often, there’s a glitch at some point, either in my time estimation or the “successful hunt” factor.
A store didn’t open when I thought it did, or when I get in, I can’t find the item I wanted. I return home, irritable in spite of what I did gather, knowing that sooner or later I have to go back out again. I’m tired and I want to stay home.
