"Children, let us love not in word or speech but in deed and truth." I John 3:1

"Hidden Hurts" is a term I heard last week which reminds me that we never really know the hidden hurts that may be affecting a person's behavior.

"Hot? Did you say hot?"

"Sure did, Windy, have a seat and join us," said Doc. We were huddled up in the coolth of the air conditioner blast in that certain part of the dining room at the Mule Barn truck stop. Yes. It was hot.

"Ain't like Death Valley, howsomever," Windy said. "Now boys, that there's HOT!"

"You been to Death Valley, Windy?"

A fairly quiet week for news. Everyone is busy with harvesting. Another week will finish most of it. Hope everyone had a safe and bountiful harvest.

Our son, Mark, returned home today, Sunday. He had basketball team camps to help with this coming week. Kyle went home with his dad to spend a couple weeks with his family. Sure is quiet around here.

The Huddleston clan will be gathering this coming weekend in Tribune, Kansas, for our annual family reunion. Our cousins, Jerry and Joyce Huddleston, are hosting the event this year.

Dear EarthTalk: As a member of Joe Public, is it possible to monitor pesticide levels when my neighboring farmer sprays his fields? I have wild bees and am concerned that they are being affected. -- Mickey Proctor, Ames, IA

"People look at outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart". 1 Samuel 16:7

It is true that we humans tend to look at the way a person looks on the surface, and we do not take time to see the inner beauty of people around us. We don't always value what God values, but if we did, we might find a treasure!

We all watched as the flag came by. It was the first thing in the parade, of course. Great big one, carried by two of the kids from the ROTC at the high school. The bands followed, along with the mounted patrol, the ski patrol in their summer-weight jackets, the float with the princesses on it, and the local kids leading dogs and cats - some rather reluctantly - on leashes.

GREAT NEWS!! Jerry Weber is finally coming home this Tuesday. Welcome Home Jerry.

The 4th of July activities at Sheridan Lake have been cancelled due to the dry conditions. May try to have them over the Labor Day weekend. Will keep you informed.

Sheridan Lake and Plainview school lost their electricity due to straight line winds that hit Friday evening and took out around 40 poles. Southeast Colorado Power did a great job of getting electricity back to most everyone by Saturday evening.
