  • Dear Editor,

    I saw a license plate on a car from the state of Missouri today. On the bottom of the plate it said: “Show Me.” And so my brain started thinking again, which is always a dangerous thing!

  • Went shopping on Friday. I had to get a new Bible cover, and then a friend of mine and I hit Costco and Trader Joe’s, too. Nearly every store we went into was pushing out their Halloween items and mega-sales, and already the Christmas trees and ornaments were on full display. Everywhere you looked, you could already see that fat, jolly, old elf grinning down at you, and my brain went into full discord!

  • On my way home from early morning men’s Bible study, I was playing the oldies station here in Denver and one of my favorite songs by the Ozark Mountain Daredevils came on the radio, “You Made It Right.”
        The sun had just come up, the sky was a beautiful deep blue, the mountains had snow on them, two hawks were circling overhead, and I was singing at the top of my voice along with the chorus: “Thank you Lord, you made it right. You made it right.”

  • The Center for Rural Affairs has worked to support and assist beginning farmers and ranchers for over 25 years. And increasingly, beginning farmer and rancher inquiries come from military veterans. They have the same needs as other new farmers: access to land, financing and information. But they also bring new issues: disabilities, returning to civilian life, a drive to help fellow veterans, a powerful sense of wanting to be of service to their country.
