Norman, America

It is during times of heavy change that you always get a little nostalgic for comforting things of the past. I was reading the latest blog post of the wife of one of my ministers while I was in Norman years ago. They had come there for his job and left for Tennessee several years later. But she still had this to say about the place:

As far as cities go, Norman has been my favorite one to live in my whole life probably. It’s just about perfect. Well, the wind can get a little annoying, but other than that I can’t think of a single complaint. I even like the way the roads are laid out! And OU is there, what more can I say?


I'd have to say a hearty Amen. Norman is pretty amazing. Not only is it the place where I really found out how to live life and went through the biggest changes for the better, it is simply a fantastic town. There is no telling where God will take me in the future, but I definitely know that if I ever returned to Norman I certainly wouldn't complain.



{P.S.: I really liked Tuscaloosa too, but I think it was because it was a whole lot like Norman.)

Amen to Tuscaloosa. We all miss you, even though we (Heather and I) are not there anymore.
