THE LEGEND OF THE PINK BLUEBONNET Years ago an old Hispanic grandmother was walking with her two grandchildren in the bluebonnet fields south of San Antonio. So thick were the blue petals across the plain that it looked as though the Texas sky was resting upon the earth. Scattered within the field of blue, a few white bluebonnets stood proudly at attention. "Grandmother, why are some of the flowers white?" The old lady smiled and said, "The white ones were the inspiration for the pure white Lone Star on the field of blue that waves at us from our Texas flag." The other girl added, "Grandmother, look...some are also pink. Why are some of them pink?" With a look of pride and reverence, she told the little girls, "The pink ones used to be white. But many years ago much blood was shed up river at the church we call the Alamo. The blood of our Texas heroes still rests within this earth, and to this day tints a few special flowers pink, to forever remind us of the cost of freedom."

Advice from María Sabina a Mexican healer and poet. “Heal yourself with the light of the sun and the rays of the moon. With the sound of the river and the waterfall. With the swaying of the sea and the fluttering of birds. Heal yourself with mint, neem, and eucalyptus. Sweeten with lavender, rosemary, and chamomile. Hug yourself with the cocoa bean and a hint of cinnamon. Put love in tea instead of sugar and drink it looking at the stars. Heal yourself with the kisses that the wind gives you and the hugs of the rain. Stand strong with your bare feet on the ground and with everything that comes from it. Be smarter every day by listening to your intuition, looking at the world with your forehead. Jump, dance, sing, so that you live happier. Heal yourself, with beautiful love, and always remember ... you are the medicine.”
Welcome East TX granny!
THE YOUNG COWBOY There was a young cowboy who grew up on a small family ranch in western Kansas. He left home and landed a job on a big horse ranch with a fancy barn and lush pastures near Dallas. His new job wasn't much different from the family ranch except everything was newer, bigger, fancier and it had high dollar horses. He had to exercise the horses, feed them, groom them, muck out the stalls, clean the paddoc and alley. His day off was Monday. Now this young cowboy was raised in a Christian home, he read his Bible and prayed every day. He never missed attending church. His new boss said if he got his chores done he could take a break to go to the church next to the ranch. On his first sunday this young cowboy came to work 2 hours earily. He finished his chores at 10:30 and headed next door. He tried to kick the mud and muck off of his boots and pants without much success. He didn't think much about it because he his father bad run late back at the family ranch in Kansas and they went directly to church muck and all. This church was right next to the ranch and it was pretty fancy with a lot of high dollar cars and no pickup trucks. This cowboy was a little late when he walked into the back doors of the church he looked like a brush popper. Now the preacher was at the pulpit in his 3 piece suit. He spotted this young hat in hand cowboy walk in the back doors. The preacher stopped talking for a few seconds until the cowboy sat down. After church was over the Pastor made his way to the young cowboy and talked with him while everyone left the building. When they were alone the preacher said I'm glad you are here but do you think that this is the way you should dress to come to this church? The young cowboy was hurt and didn't know what to say. The preacher told the cowboy he needed to go home and pray and ask God what he should wear to come to this church. The cowboy said ok, I pray every day. Next Sunday the young cowboy did the same thing. He finished his chores about the same time and he had mud and muck on his boots and pants. This time he tried to rinse himself with a garden hose. Sure enough when he walked into that fancy church the pastor paused and frowned at him. After church the pastor asked the cowboy to wait. Sure enough the pastor said I thought I told you to pray and ask God what you should wear to come to this church. The young cowboy emphatically said I did. The pastor then asked " And what did God tell you "? The young cowboy said " When God answered me, God said he didn't know what to wear to come to this church because he has never been invited in here ". With that the cowboy walked away and never came back. The young cowboy found a little country church about 5 miles away with pickup trucks. The moral of the story is " Find a Bible based, God fearing, people loving and non judgmental church. Cowboys/Cowgirls Why do we judge people by how they look? Leave that to JESUS ???? You Can Change Lives If You Are Bold Enough And Brave Enough To Say to someone, "JESUS LOVES YOU AND SO DO I, --Will You Go To Church With Me This Sunday" ???? And it gets easier every time you say it. As this old cowboy always says. Stay safe in the saddle, (means founded in Christ) And out of the wire, (means resist Satan's traps). Cowboy Pastor Dan Boyd
