After a bit of a early spring drought we received some good moisture in the form of a rain, snow mix this past weekend. While we had pure rain on Saturday we woke up on Sunday to a white skiff of snow. But it was gone by noon.  We are expecting to see some green rolling hills as soon as the warmer temperatures flow in on Friday.

    Despite wet or slushy gravel roads, there was a nice attendance at church on Sunday.  It was followed by a good potluck and time of fellowship.

    On Sunday April 21 Mick and Rick will take the regular Sunday service. There will be food and fellowship following the service.  Teens and young folks will enjoy this service and everyone is welcome.  The twins will be looking forward to visiting our remote area.

    Track Meets should be in full swing.  Many are wrapping up their calving season and for early calvers like the Gary and Amy Cammack’s, they will be selling their calves soon.

    Enjoy watching and experiencing this spring season.  It is so special as everything is starting anew.  Spring seems to fly by fast and those beautiful blossoms and fragrances are fleeting. From dead to alive, or sleep to awake is how the appearance of grass, bushes, flowers and trees will be soon.  So enjoy, and take time to smell the roses this week.

Jack Seller sang a special song and Caden Smiley accompanied himself on piano to a beautifully delivered song with a great message.  There were multiple Cammack families in attendance for a family gathering. Little Carson Ingalls  and family were in attendance after a long stay in the hospital.

    The Lemmel Family spent last week in Mexico as a gift from Rorey and Krista Lemmel.  They had a relaxing time as well as a divine appointment by Tristen Rhoden.  He took a stroll down the beach when a large man had gotten caught in some very large waves.  The man’s struggle did not bring him success in getting to shore despite his and the efforts of a life guard and one other.  Upon seeing this, Tristen went in and grabbed his hand and had the strength to finally pull him to safety.  He left from there knowing the man was alive and well.  Tristen will marry Kalen Lemmel in May.
