Our houseplants, always indoors for the colder months, are outside once again. Nighttime temperatures are at present around 50 degrees Fahrenheit, so there is no longer danger that the plants might freeze.
On a less happy note, the drought in the great Southwest remains, and we are continue to pray for rain. Sadly too, forest fires are still raging in New Mexico. Thankfully, for now, we are safe and sound, and there is no smoke polluting the air.
With this comes our thanks for all who do good for us. We are deeply grateful and humbled by the goodness of so many friends, new and old. May God bless you now and always.
