Last night Bill and I had a date night. We don’t have the opportunity for that as often as we’d like, so anything done together away from the house becomes a date for us!
First, we drove to Houston where Bill took me downtown to show off some of their jobsites. I’d been to one of them a couple of times, but not in awhile. This is the job that has the tower crane that my very brave but perhaps not too smart husband went up in so he could take pictures 280 feet up in the air!!! Well, anyway, the cranes are still there, but that was all I could see because we went down under a bridge so my view was obstructed.
Bill loves to drive downtown. There are so many things that interest him. He is intrigued by people – all different types of people. He loves architecture, especially odd architecture! He enjoys beautiful things, like flowers, fountains, sunrises… And he really gets a charge out of anything mechanized!!! He was like a kid in a candy shop as we watched the downtown trains go by. I know him – if he can figure it out, we’ll have a mini-train system in our yard! He’s always wanted to build Dannye one to take her protégés riding around in.
After a quick bite at Subway (we are on a budget, both money-wise and time-wise!) we headed off to our ultimate destination – the Reliant Center to see Dave Ramsey Live! Dave Ramsey is one of Bill’s heroes. As a matter of fact, I think he is right up there under our Lord and Bill’s Dad! Bill listens to him faithfully, and has been so encouraged by his radio show. So when he came to Houston, Bill wanted to go see him. Coincidently, a friend of ours sent us information about getting half-price tickets which made it even easier for us to go.
It was an amazing event. I’ve never known anyone with so much energy! He had us laughing, then crying, then laughing again all night long. I had known he is a Christian man, and was blessed to hear his boldness in proclaiming his beliefs. He used Scripture, especially Proverbs, throughout his presentation. One of his final points is “Prayer works!” He is very inspiring, not only to those deep in debt, but to anyone who would like to be better stewards of their money. He had something to say to every tax bracket. If you need hope and encouragement with your finances, just listen in on Dave Ramsey – you’ll sure get it!
God Bless your Day!
