Today is the 8th Anniversary of the Frank Pastore Show!

I had a motorcycle issue late this afternoon, and it's the kindness of God that these things have happened to me in the best of circumstances.  Today, an electrical issue while at the nearby Starbucks, just a block from work, with the bike dying in the parking garage – and then noticing that the rear tire was going flat when it was being put up on the flatbed.  Now get this, just this past Monday, I decided to grab an In-N-Out in Havasu, a 500 mile round trip, this easily could have happened in Barstow or Blythe.  God is so gracious!

Pay attention to his little acts of kindness God extends to us…. they happen more often than we're aware of.
