He has jined the world of blogdom! Hip, hip, hooray!
Ronholio is a gentleman, and a scholar -- and he is capable of head-buttin' a 260-pound man onto the cement floor of a Texas beer joint, sendin' beer mug one way and cowboy hat the other, so fast you won't know what hit ya. I hear.
He loves Jesus and his fellow man, but, like myself, he is far removed from the tight-assed kinda socio-cultural fundaMENTALism that turns people off of so many people of faith.
I'm pretty sure he's considerably more conservative than I am, doctrinally. He probably believes in some, in other words. Which matters not a whit to me, because he is my brother in Christ.
I'm pretty sure he, in some ways, ins more conservative than I am politically. But we share a certain kind of libertarian bent.
We have cleaned barns together, handled kids and cattle at livestock shows, drank beer together, picked guitars together, sang together and a lot of other things, although not in a long time. He's a heck of a guy, and he is my friend.
Go see him and his cute (yet manly), almost brand-spankin' new baby boy. And check out a poem Ronholio wrote that shows that becomin' a daddy has renewed his sense that God really is our daddy, "Abba" (not the band).
Tell him ER sent ya.
Truer words have never been spoken about my relationship between my Heavenly Father being awakened even more by my becoming a father.
I respect even more (if possible) his sacrifice and love for us now that I have a son of my own.
