Let’s start with rain. Last Monday morning I received .3 of an inch of rain, .1/2 of an inch Thursday, 1.3 ½ inches Friday, .4 of inch of rain Sunday night.

Jeff Wilson came last Monday and brush hogged my field.

Lakota Blakey and Tevin Reid stopped by on their way down to James and Kristie’s.

I took my news in last Tuesday and paid my light bill.

I took eggs to the people in the courthouse Wednesday, then I took Betty Jenkins a cake for her birthday and she gave me some tomatoes. When I got home I took some food down to Lyle and Ruby Piland and the Merritt family. I came back by Jewell Elliott’s, but she wasn’t home.

Violet and George brought me some more cucumbers.

I had my oil changed Thursday then I went by Charlotte Bock’s and then I picked up some medicine.

The lady that stopped Friday morning to let me know that there were two horses in my back yard, I appreciate her because we found the owner and they didn’t get hurt and they’re back in their pasture.

Lee Aborn mowed my grass in between rain that day.

I went down to Dustin and Kelsey Saturday evening for Bentlee’s 3rd birthday party. Kelsey served supper and then Bentlee opened his presents. Later on cake, pie and ice cream was served. Those helping Bentlee celebrate his birthday were five great grandparents, one great aunt, one great uncle, one aunt, three uncles, one cousins, one great, great aunt, his mother, Kelsey and father, Dustin.

Chad drove me home and Laura followed us so they could go on home from my house. They live in Nixa now.

It was good to have my girls back in Sunday school. Bro. Raymond brought a good message for us. His thought was The Shed Blood of Jesus, coming from Exodus 12, Leviticus 17 and Hebrews 2.

The evening message was about Abounding Hope, coming from Acts 15, II Corinthians 1, 8 and 9, Phillipians 1 and I Thessalonians 4.

Let’s keep praying for our sick folks. My prayers and sympathy go out to all who have lost a loved one.

Let’s keep praying for our nation, leaders, men and women in the service and their families and the ones in training.
