I had the privilege this weekend of making the acquaintance of some really good folks.
I had become acquainted with Gary Epperson about six months. He has continually proven to be one of the most genuine people I’ve ever met. He is one of the founding members of the Patriots of 746 group, a non-partisan, grassroots group fighting for the rights of all Arkansans. Specifically, they have been extremely influential among legislators and are making a big impact in the fight for Second Amendment rights.
I was also able to visit briefly with former gubernatorial candidate and nationwide gun rights advocate Jan Morgan. A few months ago I was afforded the opportunity to visit Morgan at her private gun club, the Gun Cave in Hot Springs, AR. –See related story
Arkansas Lieutenant Governor Tim Griffin was the featured guest speaker. Several legislators, including State Representatives Marcus Richmond and Harlan Breaux were also on hand.
I was quite moved and impressed that this group began with prayer. POA 746 representative Dan Borum, who is also a pastor, prayed a humble and heartfelt prayer. It wasn’t much later that I discovered that Breaux, a State Representative from district 97 was a Gideon! I recognized his sweet spirit and he and I immediately made friends! He was truly a blessing to get to know!
Afterwards I thought about how fortunate I was, but not because I was able to get to meet these wonderful folks, or vice versa. It is the fact that the One who afforded us such an opportunity knows who we are, and calls us by name. He even knows the number of hairs on our head. The Lord knows His children and I am so thankful to be one of His!
