To Longview for BSF - only two more weeks until summer break. Also did some shopping in Longview and back home. Then to church for the last week of "I Am A Church Member" study.
Our cat Cooper has been ill will feline leukemia and was diagnosed 6 months ago. He has steadily gotten thinner and harder to please with food - we've tried chicken, salmon, tuna, steak, cream, ice cream, cheese. He will eat one thing one time and then not again . He does not seem to be in a great deal of pain. So we will take him to the vet just for a once over and suggestion as to what to feed him. He loves to sit in my lap and be petted and still purrs - so I will not entertain any suggestions to put him down - yet.
Blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD, whose confidence is in him.
God bless your hope.

I took mom to the dentist this morning and it was rather traumatic because she really can't understand instructions but the technicians were very patient and kind. Then i shopped for groceries. On the way home I went by the church and cleaned up the mess left over from all the flowers and vacuumed.
Then I went home and DS wanted to plant today before it rained. DH and I had already planted onions and potatoes. So we planted tomatoes 3 varieties , peppers, and okra. Then we planted purple hulls and blackeyed peas. DH was still hand tilling the edges of the field while DS and I planted.
Then we went to dog training and since DH was so tired, me and Max did it all. And just wore me out. So good night for now. Sleep tight!
Matthew 11:28-30 Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”
May God give you rest!

There has been loads of rain this spring. So all the grasses and the wild flowers are in bloom. The grass has grown so much and so much needs to be mowed. So with a suggestion from our neighbor, we found a young man that is willing to mow the ditches and we have 1/2 mile of ditches. A very nice young man who says "Yes ma'am" and "No ma'am" and wanted to charge only $100. We told him to go ask his dad to help him with a price that was fair to him. So problem solved.
Anyway - we had planted some things last year that I was sure had died but I hadn't pulled it up. Well, lo and behold, these dead sticks are blooming massively.
Then bulbs our neighbor had given and roses we just planted.
I thought of all the dead branches last year that have bloomed ferociously this year with the rains this year. It reminded me of lives that are dead when washed with the Living water come alive. Another reminder of Easter and life after death - His life after His death assure us life after ours.
Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him. For we know that since Christ was raised from the dead, he cannot die again; death no longer has mastery over him. The death he died, he died to sin once for all; but the life he lives, he lives to God. In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus.
God bless you with new life through His Son, Jesus Christ.
