I guess what doesn't kill you will make you stronger, and after the week that the County Line Rivals went through I am sure this statement is true. With a tri-meet in Limon on Thursday night and then following it up on Saturday for the Miner's Wrestling Tournament in Trinidad. This time of the year not only the weight factor comes in to play, but let's throw in flu season. The Tri-Meet was a kickoff to the weekend with Kiowa and Limon and although not many matches were wrestled it was good to see some of the Rivals get in a win. Saturday was an early 3:45 a.m.
I guess that ole' man winter finally decided to make an appearance in our area. It has been near blizzard conditions since around 1:00 p.m. today. About everyone I called, didn't have any news and was glad to be inside and staying warm.
All of the outdoor Christmas decorations are put away for another year. Now we have moved on into the next events of our life. We are having babies (goats that is). We had a set of triplets Thursday - they are so cute - but like all things, they outgrow that.
"The Lord will keep you from all harm. He will watch over your life; the Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore." Psalm 121: 7 & 8.
Last week Pastor Russell Parker and pianist, Anetta Maxcy led the Weisbrod Chapel-Church. The pastors of Kiowa County take turns each Sunday to bring the Word and music to residents and sometimes, when the C.N.A.s have time, they help residents hold hymn books to sing.
