Why are you crying?

By REV. JUDI WIEGMAN

Sitting on my front porch is a large ceramic cowboy boot.  It has survived a couple of moves though it was dropped once, broken and glued back together.  The top of it holds a Gerber daisy plant, (my favorite flower) that refused to bloom all last summer, managed to survive the winter and sometimes went without water for days.  Passing by it a few days ago I made a mental note to pull it up and toss it.  That was until Sunday!  Could it possibly be?  Yes! And orange bloom greeted me and upon further examination three more were springing up! Considering that even my “silk” plants die; this is a major breakthrough!

Once I began my journey through classes and fieldtrips at Texas Tech University, my visits to Rita BlancaCanyon took on a whole new meaning.  Instead of primarily focusing on animals, each step involved practicing my plant identification and in what situation the plant was growing.

Three Strikes and ‘yer safe!

By REV. JUDI WIEGMAN

Impetuous Peter was the big, rough fisherman who always seemed to plunge headlong into a situation and give it 100% of his energy!  He was one of the three characters found in last week’s column who accompanied Jesus into the garden and fell asleep when he should have been on watch.  Strike One!

The Golden Wolves hadn’t played a game in two weeks and it showed in the opening quarters of the Area Round Championship.  The Wolves appeared a little rusty as they had a little difficulty getting their shots to fall and at times they appeared winded and a little tired.  On the other side, Midland Greenwood came out hot and they were very effective shooting the ball, making 9 three’s in the game shooting 69 percent, while holding the Wolves to only 1 three (20 percent) with their defense.  Coach Walker did a good job of keeping the players fresh with his rotation and in the end the Wolves pulled out a one point victory to advance to the regional quarterfinals by winning 56-55.

Joel Hogue made a business trip to Dalhart Tuesday, February 21, 2012. Little did he know he would return to Amarillo that evening with something he lost almost 40 years ago.
Hogue received his class ring just as all high school students do. Some rings are treasured and kept forever in a jewelry box, some are sold with estate items and are in antique stores, many are simply recycled for the value of the gold, some high school sweethearts never return them and some are just lost with no explanation and never found.

The Bitter Cup

By REV. JUDI WIEGMAN

Sometimes I alter my normal morning routine, forgo the Java and choose to savor a steaming hot cup of tea. It gives me a chance to select from one of the many teabags in my pretty, black lacquer box; a gift from my daughter, Autumn. Recently, I rearranged the compartments and added some teas given to me as Christmas gifts.
