I sure have found it difficult to find time to post on this spot. My days are very busy. Wake at 5:00 to be at work by 6:00 then get off at 3:30 and work on the house. It's been a long day. I did get a call on my truck though after I got home. The guy seemed interested, but wanted to talk for quite a while about his old truck and other endless ramblings. Meantime I had to be at the Lott's to watch Allison and Drew so Kevin and Kathy could visit Kathy's mom in the hospital. Hopefully this guy will buy the Scout for the money I'm asking so I can buy a Super Duty. It's funny how before I decided to sell my Scout I was pretty attached to it. Now that I've decided not only in my mind but also in my heart to sell it, I've become detached, but for some reason it won't detach from me. Isn't it ironic? Don't ya think? A little too ironic...

I sure wish I had the time to record all of my thoughts. On the way to work I think about all kinds of interesting things as well as on the way back. I was just thinking about how interesting it is that people often use earthly things to attract friends or people of the opposite sex. It seems that every time me or someone I know tries something silly like that you get exactly what you have. You get a boyfriend/girlfriend or friends that are shallow and are interested in either your earthly possesions, your physical image or any of those other things that fade and do not last. On the contrary when you use the fruits of the spirit, the presence of the Lord, character, integrity, purity and so on, you find that you'll attract people that have depth and will build you up in your relationship with Christ.

Lord let those who come to me, come out of an attraction to you. Even if it means that I am to be poor and broken and at a loss for all the things the world holds dear, let them see you and be attracted by you. I have nothing that is worth anything to offer anyone that they can't get somewhere else. You are all I have that is worth anything. You are the only One true thing that will always stay the same. Help me to better understand that, and help others to see that as well.

Good thoughts. I see quite a bit of that myself in the world and it is a real tragedy. I also agree with your conclustion and prayer. Keep writing David, you have many quality things to share.

hey Dave! I am sure glad you got a blog. It helps me feel more connected to you while I am up at Hopi. And I so agree with Paul you very much have valuable things to say!! :D
How are things going down there? We made a couple visits today and did had some encouraging visits while out. I am going to go with some Hopi ladies to go pick wild tea in about a half an hour. I think that is cool. I hope to go gather Yucca leaves sometime for making baskets. I would love to learn how to do that just for fun. How is Kathy since her MRI today? Let me know.

Love you!!!! Your Biggest Fan :D

Mom ;D

Hey mom! Great to hear from you. Kathy said 3 or 4 folks have come by today to check out the house and tomorrow is all booked up. She won't find out the results about her MRI until tuesday. Sounds like you're having fun! Tell dad I said hi!

Wow that is amazing!! Great news about the house. Can you make sure the old or new fan is up so it shows well?! Especially before tomorrow. Thanks Dave. So Kathy won't hear about the MRI till next Tuesday. Well then I will hear it from her because we will be back then for a bit. Well we went to find Hopi tea but couldn't find any except by the side of the road which they really don't like to use because of all the polution with cars driving by so we picked the Hopi Tea by the side of the road so we could plant the seeds around the church so when we wanted it next year it will be growing hopefully all around us.
Spend some time building relationship with the kids that I planted the avacado seed with and slowly I hope to get to know them. One girl about 6 named Jureen has kinda taken to me and she likes to help me water plants and wants to help me plant seeds. She is a sweet heart. Dad is going to a WYAM meeting tonight. I will tell him you said hi. I am also glad to hear you got another call on your truck. Have you made a plan when you are putting it in the truck trader??

Love you!! Big Hug!!
