some things are universal...like Texans


Over the weekend on the drive out to Irvine, there was an SUV with Arizona plates. Next to the plates was a Texas flag sticker! The driver made an extra effort to pull up next to my Texas plated Honda and gave a simple nod of approval. In the parking lot at the Rangers/Cubs game was the single most Texas plates I have seen n the same spot since moving out here to Arizona. You know what, I love the Texan pride. One day, I yearn for my kids to understand the pride and experience it themselves. I miss that here. As I think and pray about my future and where God will lead, I feel he wants me away from Texas for at least a while...but I wouldn't complain if I ended up back there someday. As the speakers in the Rangers Spring Training stadium blared...
God blessed Texas.

And you know that I wouldn't mind if you ended up back in Texas.

Those of us who aren't from Texas who happen to live in Texas are truly amused at the cartoonish appeal and overblown romanticism Texans have for their state.

It always makes me giggle...especially when I say things like that and the first thought native Texans have is, "Well, he can't possibly understand. He wasn't born here."

Of course, I say the same type things about Auburn football...

...so I say, "Rock on, Texas. And Rock on, Texans!"
