  • I do not worry about perfection in our lawn around the house.  It largely blends in to the pastures where we graze sheep and poultry.  However, we do need to spot seed from time to time to recover heavy use areas and around bale feeders.

  • Wildfires recently consumed about 1 million acres across the plains of Kansas, Okla­homa, Texas and portions of Col­or­ado.

    At least seven lives have been lost, several firefighters injured, thousands of head of livestock destroyed and as many ranchers have lost homes and livelihood.

  • Not long ago on a mission trip, I met some young people who stopped me in my tracks.  They came up after a service was over just to talk for a few minutes.  Over the next 30 minutes, I got a lesson in the reality of Christian living in the modern world.  They were experiencing a lot of pain just to gain some temporary happiness and acceptance.

  • The old saying, “In like a lion…” has held true so far for the month of March.

  • “Once upon a time,” the fairy tale beginning.  It conjures up images of a better time.  Fairy tales always start off well, then things fall apart, but all ends well and “They lived happily ever after.”

    I think a lot of people are living with “Once upon a time” syndrome.  We idolize the past and forget that the good old days weren’t all that good.  We look back to some golden era in our childhood or in our nation’s history and want to regain that imagined glory.
