Roping a deer in Texas: I had this idea that I was going to rope a deer, put it in a stall, feed it up on corn for a couple of weeks, then kill it and eat it. The first step in this adventure was getting a deer. I filled the cattle feeder then hid down at the end with my rope. The cattle, which had seen the roping thing before, stayed well back. They were not having any of it. . .
Old Tired Dog: An old, tired-looking dog wandered into the yard. I could tell from his collar and well-fed belly that he had a home. He followed me into the house, down the hall, and fell asleep in a corner.
Mary Morrissey Quotes: Jesus said: “I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.” You are invited to experience that abundant life. You came into the world to bear witness to the glory of the One who indwells you. As you sit poised at the dawn of a new year, pledge to truly begin anew, to break free of the patterns that diminish you and embark on a deeper, more meaningful journey with God. Mary Morrissey

It’s What You Scatter: ‘Tell you what. Take this sack of peas home with you and next trip this way let me look at that red marble’. Mr. Miller told the boy. ‘Sure will. Thanks Mr. Miller.’ Mrs. Miller, who had been standing nearby, came over to help me. With a smile she said, ‘There are two other boys like him in our community, all three are in very poor circumstances. Jim just loves to bargain with them for peas, apples, tomatoes, or whatever. When they come back with their red marbles, and they always do, he decides he doesn’t like red after all and he sends them home with a bag of produce for a green marble or an orange one, when they come on their next trip to the store.
