Default Put a lump in my throat.

I stopped in town (Bandera)to get fuel and when I got there, there was 1/2 dozen bikers a few pumps over. A DPS cruiser pulled up to fill up-at the pump behind them. I had noticed over the bed of my truck that all of the bikers started moving towards the officer, and I stood up to watch, they actually surrounded him-between the pump and his cruiser. I watched, kinda nervous, for a few seconds-until they all bowed their heads and prayed for him.
Man! God is good!

Thatís great to hear. There are still a lot of good people out there and they realize the difficulty law enforcement faces on a daily basis. Definitely good to hear something positive with everything going on. Thanks for sharing.

Couple weeks ago I had a lady stopped next to me in my marked unit at a traffic light. The intersection was not in the best part of town.

She got my attention and asked me to roll my window down. When I did she said "god bless you sir and have a happy holiday " I said god bless you back and she turned right and drove away

I wish I would have caught up with her

Back in the late 90ís a group of us rode our bikes down to Fredericksburg for the weekend to let the wives do some shopping.
While all us guys were sitting on benches out front in downtown, a group of Bikers For Christ pulled up and parked close to us. They walked over to us and asked if we were the ones that owned the other bikes and when we said yes they asked could they pray for our safety while touring.
We almost had a revival right there on the sidewalk because we were actually a group from our church and God was there in a real way.
BTW, we rode back to Ft.Worth in the rain the next day and not one of us had any problems.
God is good.
