The People You Meet

Ah, a story which I forgot to share with you. It illustrates the small-town Kansas life.

I went to the "grocery store" in Victoria during the evening earlier in the week to buy a good pen and a notebook. The fellow in front of me asked: "Are you one of the novices?"

Wearing my David Wright (NYMets) t-shirt, I chucked, "Guess I really stand out, don't I?"

"No, I recognize you from church on Sunday, I was the lector. Let me pay for your stuff."

"That's really not necessary."

"No, it's no problem."

Randy is a wheat farmer and a church lector. He says he needs some rain and weather in the 90s. If you have time tonight, shoot a small prayer God's way for Kansas' cold rain and hot sun.
