Now Is The TimePosted Tuesday, November 6, 2012, at 9:57 PM
There is beauty all around us.
Trash is everywhere, spirits are low. The life of the party has collapsed like a balloon leaking air.
All is not lost. An Election is not the end of our lives, but a call to something greater than our country and ourselves.
What should change, is what is in our hearts towards each other. After all, it should be very hard to hate someone that was created the exact same way that we ourselves were.
Now is the time to Look UP and Know that the Lord is Our God. It is He, who will set His House In Order.
Keep walking, talking and praying. And most of all be prepared when He calls your name.

Fixing fence is the one of the hardest jobs on a ranch. I no longer live on a ranch, but I do know what hard work is. Fences are everyone's concern, but nowadays,the "hole" is always your neighbor's side not your own. It used to be that you would respect your neighbor and mend the fence together. If their cows got in your field, a simple phone call resolved the problem. You might even saddle up your own horse and help them gather them up. We need more people who are willing to roll their sleeves up and fix the fence regardless of who your neighbor is. There are people in this country who need to be reminded that a fence is like the way you should conduct your life. Your posts should be straight and neat. The wire needs to be stretched tight and your gate might be closed, but can still be easily opened. And most of all, we can all saddle up together and ride the range, it won't matter if you have an Appaloosa, Quarter Horse or Thoroughbred. The cows still have to be gathered, fences have to be fixed, and the range is a wide open space of opportunity for us all.
