Hope you are having thankful day.
I am thankful for the sunshine today, and the warmth it provides for our planet. It has been said that if our distance from the sun was any greater we would all freeze to death; there would be no life here; and if it was any closer it would be far too hot.
So I am thankful to the Creator of all things for designing so intricate of details into the created order.
Thankful from the banks of Flat Creek,
Since the last few days; at least since Friday the 11th of October; we have had mostly clouds and rain. We were blessed to receive almost seven inches of the blessing of heaven. The rain even caused the Creek to rise to the brink, and overflow in some of the lower places.
It is good to see the sunshine down upon us. God reminds us that His blessings continue, and we are to bless His name too.
Enjoy the sunshine today, and be blessed.
May 17 was the last day of School at Cassville R-IV School District in Cassville, MO. That is about 11 days earlier than last year.
We had a rather mild Winter, so we had fewer days to make up due to weather, ice, snow and such things. We only had one snow day, and we made it up by getting out a bit later than scheduled.
Anyway, School is out; Summer is on the way, and boy am I glad to see it.
Have a great finish to Spring, and a whole Summer of warmth, rain, and sunshine.
The Blessings of the LORD of hosts be with you.
Fairest Lord Jesus
1. Fairest Lord Jesus, Ruler of all nations, O Thou of God and man the Son; Thee will I cherish, Thee will I honor, Thou, my soul’s glory, joy, and crown.
2. Fair are the meadows, Fairer still the woodlands, Robed in the blooming garb of spring; Jesus is fairer, Jesus is purer, Who makes the woeful heart to sing.
3. Fair is the sunshine, Fairer still the moonlight And all the twinkling, starry host; Jesus shines brighter, Jesus shines purer Than all the angels heaven can boast. A-MEN.

Along about late Saturday evening we got some rain. I think it rained a little off and on through early Sunday morning. It rained between 4:30 and 5 a.m. coming a pretty good shower. Lord, I thank YOU for sending the rain, and bringing its wonderful blessings. YOU are a blessing.
It was raining a bit when I got up this morning too. It stopped, but looks like it could just start back up any time. We do need more.
Maybe if we followed the words of God, “In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you” (1 Thessalonians 5:18) He would give us what we need in His own timing.
Thank God for the sunshine and the rain.
