Just a quiet day at the ranch yesterday. Whew! Life has been a flurry of late. Not used to so much attention. Once your used to 3 miles an hour, and the relative solitude of the road, this all a little over whelming. But we have been having a blast.I sat and talked with this ol' cowboy, Cary Myers, yesterday for hours. And what a life he has lead rodeoing and horseshoing.He told of lots of adventures, but the best part was how God saved his life, and healed him 3 different times. He has had his neck broken, back broken, and an anurism burst behind his sternum, that was inoperable and yet here he is.They told his son he had a 3% chance to live.His son said "that's good enough...he'll make it!" And he was kind enough to sit for hours and share his life and testimony. If ya would be so kind...could you please pray for this brothers improved good health.
We also met Virgil Leadbetter and Ray Flanagan. Ray would like us to pray for his Son. He is struggling in his life. Broke his back, lost his leg. So please call out to the Holy Spirit and ask him to pray to our Father for a physical and spiritual healing. (Romans 8:26)
I tore the feed trailer apart today. Gonna let the rain clean it up for us a l;ittle. There is a huge pavilion where we are setting and we are making good use of it. We have out a lot of our under the bed (and hard to get to) stuff out, under it for easy access.
Punkin cooked up a venison roast that we got blessed with. She slow cooked it with some carrots (sorry Bob & Casey I ate um!) nice and slow...until it was falling apart. Man-o-man was that good. So nice to be stopped for a minute so we can actually cook & clean. Just do some of the things we used to take for granted.
Bear & sugar Ray are having a great stop. They can RUN! No kittens or farm cats around for them to tree or molest. No other dogs. Sugar even let us tiw her outside for a while. She has real issues with that normally. She was a tie out when animal control picked her up. Good thing too...I bought them this 50 pound bag of dog food....the cheap stuff...need I say more? They are pooping as much as the horses.So they are spending plenty of time outside. chuckle-chuckle!!
We had a problem that required a banker and Adam Day came down to help us. The fine gentleman at the bank who helped us is John Finlayson and we so much appreciate it if we could pray for his family. Thank you prayer warriors.
I am getting restless and ready to travel. I'm the only one in the group who is thouigh! So for the good of all I am controlling my urges. We are acually still scouting for a couple of good 2 week stops for the horses to regroup. We have started Bob on some Red Cell. I also got him to eat some vegtable oil (fat) on his oats last night. I tried once before and he wouldn't tough it. Last night he dove in and licked the bottom of the bucket. So that should help put some weight back on him if he keeps it up.
There have been so many folks by to visit. All good folks. This has been an outstanding stop. We thank all of you so much. I wanted to mention Trent Nethery. he stopped by with some lunch and invited us to Sunday night service. We have a few different invites. gonna be hard to say no to anyone. But what a great problem to be faced with. We spent so many weeks wishing we could hit a sevice...but it never worked out. We have truely been blessed. Trof our needsent surrendered to the ministry a few years ago and is in school. He would like us to pray that our Lord help in school. Lord bless him please.
We also met Bob McAfee. He would like us to pray for Dot Curtis, she needs prayer for her health problems. He would also appeciate it if we would pray for Stan Hughes, he has advanced colin cancer. I love when people ask for prayer. Acknowledging that God can meet all of our needs. And having the faith and courage to speak them out loud to fellow believers, but still stangers they never met.
