The Center Creek Bridge

While the Hurley’s sing “Unto Our God” there is a picture of the low water bridge that crosses Center Creek located in the midst of a farm I once owned in Missouri. That picture has a special significance to me, for you see in May of 1971 right after I sold 121 Veterinary Hospital and Kathy was finishing her senior year in high school, Patti, Kathy and I met on that low water bridge. It was a beautiful, warm, sunshiny day. We were there to seek the Lord for direction, just as they met at the river Ahava (Ezra 8). I had never faced such dark days in my life, but I was determined that God would hear us and we talked about what God would have us do with our lives. I was sure that God would direct us. Shortly after we went on a three day fast and at the end of the fast the Lord spoke to me, directed my paths, and sent me to Florida. That day was the beginning a clearer walk with God. Doyle
