• Taylor updated his blog about his ministry in Miami & South Florida. The work is going well and they are staying very busy ... here you can read it for yourself.

  • We’re in the Dallas area today to take Parker to the airport. He’s going to fly to Miami and spend a week with Taylor. It’s been five years since he’s flown and he’s never flown by himself, so I’m a little worried. So, any suggestions how I’d take my 6’6” son to the nice lady at the US Airways counter and tell her, “My little boy is flying all alone on this trip. Can you see that he makes it safely?”
  • Nothing like living in a small town. Friday night Taylor called from the Wal-mart in Miami where he’d just had his bank debit card declined. He had no cash for the weekend and was going to have to leave all his groceries and come back on Monday after the bank fixed his debit card. Since Taylor banks in Childress, I called the bank president to ask if they’d had any problems with their debit cards today and explained the situation. He left his house, went down to the bank and fixed the problem with the card on a Friday night. And then to top it off he said, “Here is my cell phone number, give it to Taylor and if he ever has anymore problems have him call me immediately.” I was very thankful for his kindness. Small town living has it’s perks. Thanks David. :)

    Parker will not have any problems. He is a level headed kid (that just happens to hit the ceiling on occasion).

    I agree on the small town! We are soooo lucky!

    Park will be jsut fine. I flew for the first time by myself back at thanksgiving… it was quite an experience. It was good tho, builds character.

    And that was awesome about the whole bank thing. I want to live in a small town. haha

    My baby is 37 and I she's still my baby. :)

    I live in a small town too and I love it. It's nice to know the people you do business with.

    I am going to be in your part of the world, well maybe close, going to do a youth rally at Borger cofc. Ever been there?

  7. Kyle says:

    Ooh, I sure miss that about living in a small town in Texas.

    "So I called the bank president…"

    What a fantastic line!

    Matthew … it's a great youth rally. We've been to TCC many times. I've spoken there 8-10 times in the past. They have some of the best crowds. We'll have a group there this year if the dates work out. Hope to see you there.

    When we lived in north Alabama, I could go to several businesses (including auto dealers) and take home my purchase with nothing more than a promise to come back and pay the bill. Yes … there are definite advantages to living in a small town. In my line of work, there are advantages to living anywhere!!

    small towns do have their perks

    I totally understand your anxiety. Do you think we will ever really trust our children to let Jesus take of them? It's tuff. By the way, Jesus is coming back before mine are teenagers :)

    Trey, you must be older than me. I thought from your blog you and I were close the same age. Amy and I celebrate 20 years of marriage in August, but our son is no where near 6'6" — at 12 he is only 5'6".


    Seriously; I know parents have concerns for their children. I will always (even when he is 6'6"). As for the small towns — our does not even have a bank! But the one next to us does. I cannot see why anyone would not choose small town life.

  • He was pretty tough to listen to as well.
  • As crazy as it might sound, Chris Collinsworth just might be worse to listen to than the song Christmas Shoes.
  • Please remember that some Christmas music is incredibly offensive to people with grandmothers who actually were run over by reindeer.
  • Unfortunately, not a great night for "bobcats." :)
  • Chin up Childress Bobcats. We couldn't be prouder. Great fight tonight.
