Power of Faith Wills Lufkin Third Grader To Win Bike

Have you ever had an uplifting, unexplained life experience, whereby, the under current of the event makes you an immediate believer of divine intervention.

I had mine in 2002, when after falling asleep at the wheel at 70 miles per hour, I awoken to what can only be described as a guardian angel, driving my car down the only off ramp on a 45 mile stretch of California highway.

I remember opening my eyes as if I had just knocked out a 15 minute "power nap".  Very relaxed, and quite subdued, as my speed slowly reduced to an uneventful stop.  How did my foot get from the gas pedal to the brake pedal?  I  know I didn't cheat death, but rather felt I was still needed alive to hang around here.

No pun intended when saying I received a life changing  --  WAKE-UP call.

Lufkin Saves Tree Seeds, Gives Another Texas Ecosystem New Life

It was a little more than a year ago that the most destructive wildfire in Texas history destroyed much of the vegetation in Bastrop County near Austin. It was a major setback for the renowned Lost Pines ecosystem. The fire covered 32,400-acres, destroyed 1,660 homes and killed 1.5 million trees.

Now, Lufkin is coming to the rescue. Eleven-hundred pounds of tree seeds that were stored in Lufkin and almost thrown into the land fill at one point, will help rebuild the Bastrop ecosystem.
