As our Texas primary election comes up, make sure and vote. Check the candidates out & see what they stand for. I would encourage you to vote Biblical values.

The Fellowship of Christian Auctioneers International (FCAI) is encouraging everyone to renew their dues.

We minister to auctioneers & their families as well as deployed troops. Thanks to everyone who has already renewed.

In Romans 12:5 scripture states “For we, who are many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another.”

In Matthew 9:12 & 13 scripture states “But when Jesus heard that, He said unto them. They that be whole need not a physician, but they that are sick 13 But go, ye and learn what that meaneth. I will have mercy, and not sacrifice, for I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.”

The Rancher’s Code

Give everything you’ve got in everything you do.

You’re only as good as your word, so never go back on it.

Stand up for what’s right, even if you’re the only one standing.

Honor our nation, and the men and women who protect it.

Serve as a steward of the land, because the Lord ain’t makin’ any more of it.

Give thanks every day for what you have and the people who got you there.

The person next to you is more important than anything on your mobile.

Never post anything online you would not say to someone’s face.

Respect the opinions of others, even if you do not agree with them.

When you get knocked down, get back up.

I assisted Texas Values with an auction in Houston. The honored guest was Coach Kennedy who went to the Supreme Court.  He won his case which allows him to pray on the football field after a game.
