Home, home on the range…

Sayre, Oklahoma

Since we are from the Pacific Northwest and most of the people we know there and in Arizona have never been to Oklahoma, we get asked a fair amount about what it is like out here.  I did post some pictures a year ago from the Camp of Champions, a rodeo Bible camp here on the ranch, but have never really focused on where we are parked and what it looks like from our little space.  So, here are a few pictures from around our 5th wheel.

 Our little spot in the middle of 100+ acres of grass.                                                                                        

field

Just in the last week we have been here things have greened up a lot.  Rain is still needed and expected this weekend.

This is the view I have out the window over the desk where I write most of the Juniper Tree posts.  You can only see about a third of this barn in this picture and you don’t see another house that is further to the left.  This is a big property with this large barn, 3 houses and several other buildings.  There is also a large roping arena, bucking shoots (did I really write that?  chutes, chutes, I know that.  Living in Western OK, I guess) and three ponds.

Our trailer pretty much faces north.  Out to the east, across the field and a small pond sits what we affectionately call the Big House.  For years Trinity met in a small building that was once the club house for a golf course and more recently a steak house.  The most recent use of this property, prior to Trinity buying it was a race horse training ground.  The Big House is the gathering place for the Trinity Fellowship Family and where our Convergence classes and Summit are held.  It is a beautiful building that reflects the Family atmosphere and casual western culture here in Western Oklahoma.  I will try to post some pictures, one of these days, of the Big House.

Looking north to south you can see the Little House behind the truck and trailer.  The Little House is where the offices are and where we spend a lot of our time.  If the picture was a little more focused on the house you could see the shingles are ripped off.  Just before we got back here they had winds of over 70mph that came out of the north.  Not sure what would have happened to us if we had been here.  We are coming into the tornado season and wind does become a serious issue out here.

Jake really loves it here.  Lots of room to run, chase the ball, rabbits, turkeys, deer, armadillos and bark at all the visitors that come to the Little House.  It does get warm for him but he is always seems happiest here on the ranch.

Green grass, blue sky and all the room to roam one could want.  Linda’s comment when we got back here last weekend was “I like our private RV park!”  We are blessed.

    Thanks for posting some pictures mate!! I love pictures. Pictures of family and miracles. Pictures of Sayre OK. Even pictures of that church that’s a long way from anywhere but real close to everyone. The Lord has built something special to His Kingdom out there on the plains. In a land that seems to have lost its way with cold secular process’ and programs, There’s a church in the middle of Oklahoma that still has a genuine heart for America’s greatest resource… people. I love you guys. Steve
