Noah’s first NASCAR Race was a crazy success. Now as many of you know I’m a big Jeff Gordon Fan, and Noah is a Huge Joey Logano Fan. On this day the two of us went out to Texas Motor Speedway to pick up a few autographs and a Jimmie Johnson Bobble Head. We were hoping to leave with Chase Elliott, Ryan Newman, Alex Bowman, and Kyle Larson who were hanging out at the Chevy Stage. By the end of the day we met those and then some. Here are some of our favorite memories or “Trophies” from the day.
That’s right folks! My Dad, My Son, and I met Jeff Gordon and he signed a diecast for each of us. The 200 Year Dupont car is special to me because me and my dad went to Daytona in 2002 and that was the car Jeff signed for Noah. The GED PLUS raced version is cool because it was Jeff’s only win at Texas Motor Speedway our home track. The Superman is the car my dad got signed and that was Noah’s favorite.
Noah also got to meet Joey Logano, he was so nice as usual and he signed two cards for Noah. We met 2 NASCAR Legends Bobby Allison and Richard Petty, and we also met some young guns like Daniel Suarez, Bubba Wallace (When Noah said Bubba Wallace? He replied “Who said that” because he couldn’t see Noah), Austin Dillon & Ryan Blaney. Kasey Kahne, Aric Almirola also signed for us and one of Bowman’s crew guys tossed Noah a hat from the race. All in All this was the best first race someone could ask for. 3 Generations of Dad/Son Time and meeting some of the nicest guys to strap into a stock car…and oh yea, we got the Jimmie Bobble Head too!
I pray that today humanity is healed from the disease of our time…Sin. I pray that today humanity would not act so human, and conform to the likeness of Jesus Christ to act more Godly. I pray that we would be a people that would forgive before we let anger take root and waste more of our lives. Lord I pray that you would help me along with all others to fix our eyes on the big picture (Jesus), and off of the little picture (ourselves). Lord heal our hearts, heal our lands, heal our minds, and our souls. Jesus you have won victory at Calvary for all who believe, Please bring more sheep into your flock today. Without the Love of Christ we are broken, we need fixed, we need the healing power of the Trinity. Holy Spirit change us, Father God help us, Jesus inspire us to live for you. Lord I look around today and humanity looks so……human. Help us to live the life you want for us, a divine life.
I’m a proud parent of 3 incredible little boys. I love to talk about my boys. Nothing brings me as much Joy. The reason this Joy is so great in my life and my heart is because my children love the Lord and walk in His truth. This didn’t happen overnight and if you were to talk to my kids they would tell you where they have fallen short of the Glory of God. But I’m deeply thankful to God for their spirit of love, compassion, & grace. These things are important in our house, but it wasn’t easy to get here. My wife deserves much of the credit for the Joy in my life of having Godly sons. She poured over them His teachings. We pray for them, and with great Joy I tell you that they are humble & teachable (most of the time).
“I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth.” 3 john 1:4
Thanks for the Joy of my sons walking in your ways. Thanks for giving me a wife that is tenaciously dedicated to her children and her God. Lord, thank you for using me in their life. It truly is an honor just to be a member of this family and you get the credit Lord because you put each of us together in our mother’s wombs. You knit our family together one member at a time and we are thankful for the loving members you have given us. Creator, Father God, Savior Jesus, Helper Holy Spirit, thank you for this Joy.
17 Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.
