Great but not all that great

My wife has been gone for the past several months and I wanted to do something special for her so I ended up taking her to a nice steakhouse in the little town of Ponder Texas.

Upon being seated at the restaurant we couldn’t help but notice some newspaper clippings and pictures on the wall and I figured there must have been someone famous who ate here. When I asked the waitress about it she had mentioned that the particular booth we were dining at was the one John Wayne used to sit in when he visited there. Then I noticed some pictures of the old Bonnie and Clyde movie with Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty which included the bank of Ponder in its production. Come to find out the Ponder Bank may have been one of Barrow’s targets but supposedly the bank had gone broke before they arrived.

So who would have ever known that such a small community, near our home, would hold such great stories and we didn’t even know it?

Some may see the wonderment and excitement to visiting such a nostalgic place but I’m reminded that the Greatest of the great is all around us, every day, as there are signs of His glorious display, even though many have failed to take notice of such greatness. Thus the tragedy to this thought is that some would rather be awestruck by stardom than by the One who made the stars.
