The life of a trucker can be one of waiting and wondering what is taking so long. However, times like this evening is really quite peaceful and tranquil. Loading at Blue Star Growers, Cashmere, WA has always been a very pleasant event. They’re just very nice people!
The Road Ahead is a quick and little poem. Poems come to me in very odd times. I never trained in writing poems, they just appear. My poems do not follow the typical protocol, and that’s okay.
Today, Saturday June 11 2016, is one of those unique days that provide rest to my body. I know that sounds weird, but as a trucker, and one getting of age, rest is so important!
When I started trucking in September of 1977, Ft. Wayne, Indiana leased to North American Van Lines my first truck that I owned, never did I realize that 38 years would go by!!! Amazing how time unfolds in our life. I suppose I am no different than the millions and millions of people who also start their adult professional career not knowing that what they are doing will last decades into the future.
Welcome to Blog Mission where I as the resident trucker missionary and street-preacher of sorts attempts to tell his story of life as a trucker as it relates to touching people for heaven. Is it really possible to live on the road and still be a preacher? I think the answer is yes. I have had my shares of ups and downs while living on the road, however, the Lord has always helped me in every situation. Yes, the answer is yes!
Trader Joe’s cashier, Grace, asked me when I walked up, “What interesting thing has happened today?” I just stood there! I didn’t have a ready answer. That is completely out of character for me. I always have an answer, except today I had no answer.
