I went to the Riding for a Brother benefit at Hanover's Draft Haus in Pflugerville today. Albert C. Borrero was killed in a motorcycle accident recently, and this event was to help his wife Patricia and children Aiden and Avery. My prayers go out to his family.
The brisket and sausage plates were great, as was the music. It was well attended by the local clubs. I only stayed for the first band "Luvream", but they were very good, if also very loud. Pics are below, click on any one for a larger image, or click the title above for the youTube video (sorry for the bad audio).
Finally, a new type of photograph I have been experimenting with called HDR (High Dynamic Range).
Life can seem kind of hum drum, day in and day out, week in and week out, especially in the summer. I get into a routine, and just keep going. Sometimes I don't enjoy it very much, but once in a while, something happens to brighten my day. You might ask me what that is, and I will tell you that the thing that brightens my day is when I see God working. What do I mean my that? Well, what I mean is I can be going about my business, and out of the blue, someone will want to talk and I will be able to see that God is using me to minister to that person. It may be a heavy duty conversation, or it may be some light joking, but whatever it is, I get this sense that God has place me in the situation at that time for His specific purpose to minister to someone. It just makes the whole day go better. I guess what i am saying is that having a relationship with God really requires some interaction with this being we call God. So, my suggestion to you, is that you take a moment during your day to ponder how God might be using you. You see, to me being used by God is one of the greatest blessing I can receive.
