Well, we have had a blessed week, weather wise this past week. We have again seen extreme temperatures from the 90s one day to the 50s the next. Winds that would nearly blow you away. We nearly had some rain Friday morning. I woke up and it was lightning, but, when I turned the light on outside, the concrete was dry. Maybe this week we will have better chances of precipitation coming possibly Friday and Saturday. I am hoping that we won’t see anymore freezing temperatures until next fall. I got out yesterday and mowed my weeds. I didn’t see any grass among what I was mowing. The plant with the little purple flowers was abundant, but, it looked like it was turning brown.
I went to Amarillo Saturday morning and the winds were blowing at more than 30 mph. I made it over to see Randy and made it back home again safely Saturday evening.
There are 2 wedding showers scheduled this month. Morgan Good’s shower is Sunday, April 29, from 2-4 pm at the Ryan Church of Christ. They are registered at Dillard’s, Target, and Walmart. Also, on April 22, at 2:00 pm at the Ryan First Baptist Church, Larimey Curtis and his fiancee. There is a hostess box for each of the 2 couples at the Ryan Drug Store if folks would like to just put in some money for either of the couples.
The Ryan food bank will be distributing food on April 28th.
We received news from our Methodist District Superintendent last week, that our pastor, Sandy Shepherd is going to be assigned up around the Tulsa area to two new churches for her. She expressed a need to be relocated if possible, to be closer to her mother, that has had some concerning health issues. We are sad to lose her, but we are certainly glad that she will be in a location that will get her closer to her mom. Mark, her husband, has been quite an asset in our church, too. He has sung some solos on several occasions, and is certainly blessed with a beautiful voice. Our church doesn’t know at this time what pastor will be assigned to our church. We will be in prayer for receiving our pastor, whomever they assign us.
Kim’s news for this week:
Foxy is a cowdog chick. Riding Ruffy Tuffy is her best trick.
Cowboys don’t cry, Ride Foxy ride.
Her favorite pastime of all is playing with her silly-ball. She can raise her paw and praise God!
Everyone have a blessed week. Please pray for rain and for each other.
