Ride Across America II: Balmorhea TX

Balmorhea TX.  Ever heard tell of it? (said with Texas drawl)  Me neither.  But that’s where me and my bike-riding husband are at this point in our virtual…

Ride Across America” (dramatic music)

We do the miles around our midwestern town and plot our progress on a Google map. 🙂

We started in Florida in March (pretend) and, after a 72 mile ride yesterday (real), we’re in Balmorhea,  pronounced: Bal more AY

Balmorhea is a tiny little town.  BUT, Balmorheans can boast of one thing that not many a small town in Texas can lay claim to:

an oasis!

People come from miles around to swim, fish and even scuba dive in the vast watering hole at Balmorhea State Park.  See?

Shade and water — ahhhhh…– refreshing after a long ride.

Why don’tcha sit a spell with me here in the shade of God’s love, and take a long, cool sip of His Word:

“He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.  I will say of the Lord, ‘He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.’ ” ~~ Psalm 91:1-2

“Because you are my help, I sing in the shadow of your wings.  My soul clings to you; your right hand upholds me.”  ~~ Psalm 63:7-8

“Blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD And whose trust is the LORD. “For he will be like a tree planted by the water, That extends its roots by a stream And will not fear when the heat comes; But its leaves will be green, And it will not be anxious in a year of drought Nor cease to yield fruit.”  ~~ Jeremiah 17:7-8
