The light turned yellow, just in front of him. He did the right thing and stopped at the crosswalk, even though he could have beaten the red light by accelerating through the intersection.
The tailgating woman behind him was furious and honked her horn, screaming in frustration, as she missed her chance to get through the intersection. As she was still in mid-rant, she heard a tap on her window and looked up into the face of a very serious police officer. The officer ordered her to exit her car with her hands up. He took her to the police station where she was searched, fingerprinted, photographed and placed in a holding cell. After a couple of hours, a policeman approached the cell and opened the door. She was escorted back to the booking desk where the arresting officer was waiting with her personal effects.
He said, ”I’m very sorry for this mistake. You see, I pulled up behind your car while you were blowing your horn, giving the guy in front of you the finger and cursing at him. I noticed the ‘What Would Jesus Do’ bumper sticker, the ‘Follow Me to Sunday-School’ bumper sticker, and the chrome-plated Christian fish emblem on the trunk, so naturally ……..I assumed you had stolen the car.”

JIM BELL [KUHF FM 88.7 Morning Edition anchor since 1997-retires 2010] (Lufkin TX) Subject: Bob Presley. I’m really saddened to learn of Bob Presley’s passing. Yes he is best remembered for his years at KILT, but he was also at KPRC Radio for a few years in the late 60s and early 70s. He was there when I went to work there in 1969 when it was on S. Post Oak, and he made the move to KPRC’s fancy new studios on the SW Fwy in 1972. He left sometime around 1974, and I don’t know why he left, but I’m guessing it was to go back to KILT as sales manager. He did one of the midday shifts as I recall, and he really was one of the nicest and most amiable people I ever met in my 45 years in the radio biz. Jim Bell Lufkin TX

When I first came to Houston, I marveled at the smooth presentation of the guy on KILT from Noon-3 everyday. The guy was Bob Presley. Truly one of the folks that made KILT a powerhouse. I had the pleasure of working with him during my time at KILT (1976-1980) and was impressed with his humble attitude and amazing work ethic.

Be joyful in hope. Sometimes the circumstances of your life (and the condition of this world) make it difficult for you to be joyful. When you’re searching for Joy, where do you turn? One of the best places to find true Joy is in hope. I want you to know the hope to which I have called you-the riches of My glorious inheritance. Since you are a co-heir with Me, this blessing is definitely for you. When present circumstances are weighing you down, grasp onto hope for dear life! It will help you not only to survive but to thrive-to live joyously.
In some ways, hope is like a hot-air balloon. It is very buoyant, so it can lift you up above your troubles. It enables you to soar in the heavens with Me-helping you see things from a heightened, big-picture perspective. To embark on this heavenly journey, you must climb into the basket beneath the balloon-by trusting fully that your hope in Me will not let you down. There is surely a future hope for you, and your hope will not be cut off.
Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. -Romans 12:12 [May God] give you the Spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of him, having the eyes of your hearts enlightened, that you may know what is the hope to which he has called you, what are the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints. -Ephesians 1:17-18 esv
There is surely a future hope for you, and your hope will not be cut off. -Proverbs 23:18
