I read a good book today. I went to Mardel Christian Bookstore near 51st and Harvard in Tulsa and got it on sale for 5 bucks! I got a good deal. It was originally $25. The name of it is Billy Graham, God's Ambassador. It is written by Russ Busby, the photographer who was with him throughout his ministry. It's full of interesting pictures and tons of quotes and also talks about the details of Dr. Graham's life. I read and skimmed through this book in about three hours while I sat in the living with my family and watched a favorite remake movie, Parent Trap.

In 1939, Ruth Bell wrote this poem about her future husband. This was before she met Billy Graham.
Dear God, I prayed, all unafraid
(as we're inclined to do)
I do not need a handsome man
but let him be like you;

Hey, if you know a lot of quotes that you can fit into conversation at the right time you can look smart to those around. A good quote is like a golden nugget of knowledge. I noticed at work they are starting to put quotes in our assembly line daily information paper. So I thought it would be interesting to find some more on the internet. Besides these are comments from world reknown successful individuals and I would want them to have some impact on the lives of my four children. I found a good website for this it is SuccessMethods.org. I then researched the lives of these well quoted people so we could have a better idea of where they're coming from with their quotes.

Last Tuesday I came in late to my assembly line job. I was sent to the boxer. That's where the ranges we make are placed in a box. I enjoy working with their team. The six or seven people on the team are all helpful and friendly. I worked next to Jim. He's an older guy who stands about 5'9". One of the things I think is nice about him is his wife regularly makes great tasting cookies for him to share with the rest of the group. He always enjoys chatting with me when I see him.

Things to do

"I'm going to a re-enactment in Carthage, Missouri not long from now." Matt told me. I was working across from him in the side panels area at work. He's talking about a battle re-enactment from the Civil War. He plays the part of a Confederate soldier. He is usually involved in about 4 every year. It's fun to know when he participates in one of these. They're interesting and bring history to life. They always have them in a place where an actual battle was fought. He had another at Fort Gibson, Oklahoma.
