Well, we’ve certainly been well blessed with moisture and it is still coming down. These rains might take us up to a level that bring us out of the drought level. We can certainly be thankful for these rains. Brionna and I had to make a quick trip to Waurika this morning, but, when we got to the first bridge that was under construction on hwy 81, the road was blocked. There had been too much water that had washed out the bypass road in a small section. We had to make a U turn on the highway and proceed back to Ryan to go across the upper road and down Noble Ray Road. We made it there and back and met quite a bit of traffic to and fro. We narrowly missed a bad storm Sunday evening as we were traveling back from Denison. There were Channel 6 storm watchers along 82 just west of Nocona. The sky was black and we did drive through a bit of hail, but, we made it home. Life is sometimes quite the journey, good and bad.
Prayers and sympathy to the families of Louie (Sonny) Dabbs and John D. Johnson during their losses.

Please remember Joe Turner in prayer as he has been taken back to Duncan Regional Hospital for more surgery this past Sunday. Fern and the rest of their family need our prayers during Joe’s illness, too. Their daughter, Becky came down from Wyoming for a visit last week and stayed with Fern that whole week. Their son David, has been with Fern part of this time.
