Do we love the Lord with all our heart, mind, soul, and strength? Our bank statement can be one indicator.

Carmelite Monks? I thought there were only friars and nuns. Not in Wyoming. In 2003, through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit and the direction of the bishop of the Diocese of Cheyenne, two Carmelite priests founded the Carmel of the Immaculate Heart of Mary Monastery here in Wyoming. I first got to know these boys in 2009 and we've remained close ever since.
When Bishop David L. Ricken helped establish Carmel of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, he prophesied that from here would come the founding of many monasteries throughout he world. I have little doubt that the results of these monks' labor will bear the fruit of monastic renewal for the Church at large. When you see vocations authentically lived out it's attractive. It inspires one to be the best little toe they can be. If we all stay in our lane and be the fullest member of the Body of Christ possible, through God's grace and holiness of life, imagine how healthy the Church would be.

Sometimes I think the Lord orchestrates natural disasters just so Dad and I can have fun. Like this dead tree that fell across West Tensleep Creek up at the cabin. What better way to spend the feast of Pope St. John Paul II than in the mountains playing in the water.

I was telling Dad the other day that I think I've regressed in my feeding technologies. I went from little square bales to a pitchfork.
Patience is more attainable if we think less about immediate results.

Jake and I had been planning an October hangout since June. To welcome his arrival from Kansas, our Lord blessed us with a fresh blanket of snow. What a gift. Not what were expecting, but we wouldn't have had it any other way.

Raising sugar beets runs deep in our family. My great grandparents came over from the Russia/Germany area in the late 1800's and migrated around the US working in the beet fields. In 1942 Grandpa Adam bought a farm south of Worland and started growing his own sugar beets. Four generations later, the legacy continues.
