Good Morning Y'all. Beautiful sunny day in Loveland, CO. It will be as usual a busy day getting ready for the Sabbath at sundown. I have bread baking, made a double batch of g-f peanut butter cookies to share with friends. Plus, the building that I live in is having a ice cream social at 3: p.m. today, I hope that I do not forget to go. Love homemade Ice Cream.

Yesterday, I had a surprise or rather many. A knock at the patio stormdoor and I told the lady to come in and she looked like someone I ought to know, and she said, "Hi! Aunt Betty, it's Valerie." behind her was Gailyn her husband and behind him my precious sister in law Cleora. I haven't seen her since Dec. 31st of 2001 after my sister in law's funeral. . . John's mother. Valerie and Gailyn have been here since then as he has business that brings them to Colorado every once in a while.

They went out to the nursing home to visit John, and Jim and Chris were there, plus Jeremiah came after work to be with his dad. I am so thankful that the family came, as this is a hard time for us here with John's soon demise, or at least unless God preforms a miracle. John, realizes that his time is short and he was singing "Happy" yesterday, ate a little bit and was wanting more oxygen. I am not going out, I want to remember the last time I was there, it will be a month tomorrow as it was his 59th birthday. It was a happy time, with him and a few friends and J.J. and I, but I told J. J. that it may be his last birthday, and I wanted it to be a happy one for him.

I know that I am thankful for the time that I have had with this precious nephew of mine, and would do it all over again if I had the chance, same with his brother. They are loved a lot by me and many
others. I told Chris last night when she called to tell me that they were headed back to Cheyenne for the night, that they were both so special and never forget that Jim and she were loved a lot by me.

So, as the day wears on, and I need to get busy, I want to wish each of you a very blessed weekend and to the Keepers of the Sabbath Day. . . have a very

Betty from BealcAs Pad

3 Bullets

There once was a man who had nothing for his family to eat. He had an old rifle and three bullets.

So, he decided that he would go out hunting and kill some wild game for dinner.

As he went down the road, he saw a rabbit. He shot at the rabbit and missed it. The rabbit ran away.

Then he saw a squirrel and fired a shot at the squirrel, but missed it. The squirrel disappeared into a hole in a cottonwood treel.

As he went further, he saw a large, wild "Tom" turkey in the tree, but he had only one bullet remaining.

A voice spoke to him and said, "Pray first, aim high, and stay focused."

However, at the same time he saw a deer which was a better kill.

He brought the gun down and aimed at the deer. But, then he saw a rattlesnake between his legs, about to bite him, so he naturally brought the gun down further to shoot the rattlesnake.

Still, the voice said again to him, "I said, 'Pray, Aim high, and Stay focused."

So, the man decided to listen to God's voice.

He prayed, then aimed the gun high up in the tree, and shot the wild turkey.

The bullet bounced off the turkey and killed the deer.

The handle fell off the gun, hit the snake in the head, and killed it. And, when the gun had gone off, it knocked him into a pond.

When he stood up to look around, he had fish in all his pockets, a dead deer, and a turkey for his family to eat.

The snake, (Satan), was dead simply because the man listened to God.

Moral of the story:
Pray first before you do anything, aim and shoot high in your goals, and stay focused on God.
