There was a little more rain on Saturday night, so it was a Godsend on the fresh green wheat sprigs emerging from mother earth. It sure was nice on the seeds that are being sown now in other fields. It would be nice if could all be done in a day when the moisture is right, but seems God know best always, so He just sent this shower to prove He knows and cares.
Monday was labor Day and government office and banks were closed. However, most everyone else was busy. When I saw the people in Florida working on fallen trees, etc. it sort of made me thankful I only had fallen leaves to rake. I’m proud some of our New Mexicans have gone down to aid them in recovery from Charlie and Frances destruction. Now Ivan is out there and could follow in their path. We need to pray for them for protection as this one approaches and maybe it will stay on the water.
Eight youth and three sponsors spent the past weekend at the youth conference in Glorietta. They returned Monday night. They are sponsored by Mike and Laqueda Chavez, and were accompanied on this trip also by Kathleen Taylor.
