Spring

I have a hard time deciding what to blog about so I end up not blogging at all!  For the people who read my blog from other countries, I so appreciate you, and it's pretty easy for me to think about what I can blog about.  Things here are foreign and different to people who live thousands of miles away.  For people who live in my hometown, this is where I get into trouble.  People here know everything that is going on, it's boring to them and they don't realize how many people from different countries make it to this blog.  I feel like when the people were talking about Jesus saying " no good thing can come from Nazereth."  So sometimes hometown friends this blog will bore you and I'm sorry!
                      On the up side, spring has sprung in Oklahoma!  I sometimes think spring is God's way of reminding us that we made it throught another cold and bitter season and just look what we have in store!  It is my favorite time of the year by far.  This year, Dennis and I have much to be thankful for because last year he was so sick and I really didn't think he would be here to see another year.  See that post HERE.  Thank you Lord for sustaining us and making us strong again!  Some of my bushes are starting to bloom, they are so pretty and fresh.

The canola fields are blooming!

Warmer weather and with all that in Oklahoma comes WIND.  Fierce wind.  We are so dry here in northwest Oklahoma that when the winds come so does fire.  It's horrific and terrifying.  Our firemen have worked long and tiring hours.  They are fighting one as I am typing this blog. 
This fire spread through 620 miles in Oklahoma and Kansas.
We are praying for rain bu there is not any in the forecast. So keep us in your prayers.
Much love, Cheri
