Several years ago I made trip to the Family History Library.  I was just beginning to do family history research and I had my laptop with PAF installed and all the information that I had been given by my mother and grandmother.  My grandmother had spent her entire life researching.  She had done much herself (I have about twenty family history books with stories and photos she created) and had hired professional researchers as well.

Every year, the Morgan FFA chapter has its annual fundraiser of selling Valentine’s Day flowers.  All day long, any assortment of flowers can be seen coming and going from the Ag room.  Many members of the community come out and help the group by purchasing a bundle of roses or a vase of lilies and carnations for their sweethearts.  It’s a big hit every year!  We can always count on the folks in the county to come out and support us.  Sure, the FFA members spend all day wrapping and arranging flowers and delivering them.  But in the end, it’s all worth it to see what we’ve accomplished!

The Bible says faith without works is dead. Should we really pray for snow and rain when we live in a desert? My memory is still fresh from a request by local church leaders to pray for less snow so that homes along the Weber River don’t flood. Heaven must laugh at us here in our earthly station as we pray for a mitigation of either drought or flood every second year.
