He only [is] my rock and my
salvation; [he is] my defense; I shall not be greatly moved. How long will ye
imagine mischief against a man? ye shall be slain all of you: as a bowing wall
[shall ye be, and as] a tottering fence. They only consult to cast [him] down
from his Excellency: they delight in lies: they bless with their mouth, but
they curse inwardly. Selah. My soul, wait thou only upon God; for my
expectation [is] from him. He only [is] my rock and my salvation: [he is] my defense;
I shall not be moved. In God [is] my salvation and my glory: the rock of my
strength, [and] my refuge, [is] in God. (Psalms 62:2-7)
Because of our incredible
salvation in Christ, we can depend upon Him in times of turmoil and suffering.
He alone is our refuge and strength as our soul silently waits in great
expectation for His second coming.

noticed this "yellow grass" on highways 73, 124, and 87 and also a
couple of spots in our addition. I emailed our county agent to find out
what it was and more about it. Never had this before Ike--another thing
to thank Ike for!! Submitted

The weed is called
Dodder. It is an invasive plant that can spread quickly. It is
actually a member of the morning glory family. It will die out during the
winter time. Mowing or spraying with herbicide can help, but generally it
will die down during the winter.

The Texan & his Truck
One day, Boudreaux was sitting on his porch and a truck drove up to
Boudreaux's house and a man stepped out. The man introduced himself
to Boudreaux, told Boudreaux that he was from Texas, and that he was
getting some information about land in the area.
The Texan said, "Mr. Boudreaux, how much land do you have here where you live?"Boudreaux said, "Mais, I have about two acres."
The Texan said, "That's not much land. Back in Texas where I'm from, it takes
me just about all day to drive my truck down my driveway to my house."
Boudreaux thinks about what the Texan said for a while and then responds,
"Yeah, I used to have a truck like dat."
