First off let me say that today the pictures have nothing to do with the rest of the content.
I am just adding some random shots to break up the commentary. The title of this post kind of says it all.
Back in 1979 I had no desire to become a school bus driver.
I had been told by my doctor that I needed to get a job outside of the home.
He felt it would be good for my mental health.
which Jake needed to get to his work.
Our son was starting school in September,so what was I to do?
I had heard of the need for a bus driver for our rural one room school.
This sounded good,but I was quite sure that I could never do this sort of thing.
of our friends,I thought I might be able to do it for a year or two.
I decided to not apply for the job,but,I do remember one morning
during my devotions,praying about it.
I soon found out that God has a sense of humor.
My prayer had gone something like this,
"Lord, I am not going to call about this job,but,if you want me to have it
let them call me".Amen.
The voice on the other end was the person in charge of hiring a bus driver.
He asked if I would be interested in this job.
I started to hem and haw,and then could almost hear God say,
'What did you just pray?'
At this point I said,'Yes,I would like to have the job.'
I signed some papers that same day and started my training.
This was fairly easy and by the middle of October 1979,
I was the official school bus driver for the Mason School.
