S Handwritten letters brighten the day

Summer weather has settled in and we had some temperatures hovering near the 100 degree mark over the weekend. We had to begin using the air conditioner again to be comfortable in the hot afternoons and early evenings when the air is still and the sun beats down from the west. Often the temperature is still in the low to midddle 80s even when we go to bed late at night. Still the cicadas drone on. The heat doesn't seem to bother them. Continue Reading »

S Pray that God's people would repent and look to Him for mercy and understanding of the truth

"As it is written in the law of Moses, all this evil is come upon us: yet made we not our prayer before the LORD our God, that we might turn from our iniquities, and understand thy truth." Daniel 9:13 (Read chapter 9) Continue Reading »

S Some live, some die

Three things on my mind at once and, yes, I can handle it. I needed to fix the fence around the sick pen, put out some mineral and walk the old crippled steer to the lot. About two thirds of those things may be possible. The steers are sweet and calm until I really need them to be and today they need to be. Continue Reading »

S It's always a good idea to call home

Soon after I awoke on Sunday morning, I heard the news. There had been an earthquake in California. There is nothing unusual about earthquakes in California, but this one really shook things up.

S Yep, it's yo-yo time again

"O God, thou hast taught me from my youth: and hitherto have I declared thy wondrous works. Now also when I am old and grayheaded, O God, forsake me not; until I have shewed thy strength unto this generation, and thy power to every one that is to come." Psalm 71:17-18 Continue Reading »

S Don't do on the Web what you wouldn't do on a street corner

Some people think that what they do on the Internet is private -- that no one else knows or sees -- but that couldn't be further from the truth. Continue Reading »

S Taking care of your business is number one priority

I saw the old bull limping yesterday evening and, because I am such a pansy about tragic things, I hoped he was just stiff from lying down on rocks. It was about dark, I was hungry and tired and so I went on to the house. My close relative had supper ready and it sure smelled good, sorta erased the bull from my mind for a while.
