Texas Celebrates as Greg Abbott becomes 48th governor of Texas

Austin – The weather could not have been any better on Tuesday, January 20, 2015, as Gregg Abbott was sworn in as governor and Dan Patrick as lieutenant governor. Over 17,000 people gathered outside the capitol grounds on a beautiful sunny day in Austin to watch the inauguration, gather in prayer, and then proceed to share in the festivities with a generous and scrumptious barbecue lunch served by Eddie Deen, owner of Eddie Deen Company Catering.

The day festivities ended with a parade and the night was then followed by a fabulous Black-Tie Ball at the Austin Convention Center where approximately 10,000 people gathered for the Gala event.

Governor Abbott addressed the crowd and some of his most memorable words were, “The journey from the Houston hospital,” referring to his experience in a 1984 accident while jogging that resulted in him using a wheelchair, “to the Texas governorship was possible because of two powerful forces. First is the grace of God. The Book of Mathew reminds us that with God all things are possible. The other,” he said, “ is that I had the fortune to live in the great State of Texas. Texas is where the impossible becomes the possible.”

I am honored to have been invited to this historic event to see a man I have admired as attorney general to now step into his new role of Texas governor.
