Jesus, it feels so good to realize that our BIG change was the right thing to do at the right time! All that has happened which have been hard and ugly and dirty and long and loud and angry words and the pounding of nails... all is worth it now to see the happiness and contentment of both of us with the change and switching of homes. It gives us the realization that this truly was The Plan you had for us! I continue to pray that all stay safe - I really don't care if we are all happy ever after- just safe ever after is my heartfelt prayer! Happy ever after is not real life and without the Cross and hardships and pain the good would not be near as wonderful! If life truly were happy ever after we would be bored! Lord, we love you and long to serve you in each other and not counting the cost. Jesus, we trust in you. Amen and Hallelujah
Maria and Patrick trying to catch a nap after church, but.... Romeo has different ideas - the latest from Missouri.
Lord, I am yours - use me!
Is it any wonder why many want to return to the beauty that used to be?
A sad end to a genius in our midst.

-The land required to grow a bushel of corn has decreased 30% since 1980.
-Tools like conservational tillage, no-till, waterways and cover crops are being implemented by farmers to prevent degradation of the soil and nutrient run-off into fresh water sources.
-Precision farming gives farmers the ability to use the least amount ...of fertilizer, pesticides, and water possible to grow their crops.
-Crop rotation and rotational grazing allow farmers and ranchers to diversify their fields and manage their land sustainably.
-Genetic engineering of seeds allows a farmer to grow crops that reach their full yield potential and use less pesticides, water, and fertilizer to get there.
-Cattle production helps maintain the environment of pasture grass, turns millions of acres of non-farmable soil into productive land for food, and uses less land, water and energy than it did 20 years ago.
-A gallon of milk produced today requires 90 percent less land, 65 percent less water and emits 63 percent less carbon than a gallon of milk in 1944.
-Swine and Poultry farmers use indoor facilities to help provide animals with better and safer conditions and manage waste and odor in a more earth-friendly way.
