Thank you!

Thank you, everyone, for praying for the bull sale today.  Your prayers were very much appreciated.  God was SO good to us and all of the bulls were sold. For a good price, too!! :-)

It was an extremely long day.  Let's just say that God was good to give me the strength to function on less than 6 hours of sleep.  ;-)

We still have one more bull sale to go.  This last one (on this Friday) will kind of be the biggest one.  This is our bull Test.  We have had the bulls up there for a long time.  They feed everyone the same thing and then keep track of their daily gain, average gain, and all that other stuff.  So, it is always exciting to see how every one's bulls turns out.  This year will be slightly different because we will be doing a silent auction.  Don't know how that will go, but we will see!! 

Any how, I am thinking of doing one long post afterwards with pictures from all the bull sales.

Well, off to kick back and let my little brother finish up something on here. ;-)

Praising God,
Sarah

So glad to hear this, Sarah! We've been praying for all of you. What do you mean by the "6 hours of sleep"?
Are you telling me that there are those who get more than that? I thought 5 was normal. :)

Love you!

The last auction sounds very interesting! :)

Can't wait for the long post. :)

Blessings,

Mrs. P,
Thank you SO much!!
6 hours meant that I didn't get to bed until a little after 1 (on account of me forgetting my sheets were in the washer!), and then getting up early... But, you're right. I shouldn't complain. :) there are many others who can function on less than that all the time. Let's just say I am used to a little more! ;)
How are you all doing? We've been praying for your family!!
Love you, too! :)

Brooke,
yeah. I don't know if the bulls will do well, though, because it sounds like more work for the buyers. However, this IS our first time, so I can't make a judgement on it yet.. lol!

Oh, sweet Sarah, I was just picking at you. :) I wasn't in any way saying you shouldn't complain. You do NEED more than 6 hours, but I'm thankful God gave you the strength to function on so little. We're doing much better, but you can continue to pray for Mr. P as he is still having a hard time with the inner ear issue.

Get some rest, my sweet friend. I love you!

Mrs. P,
Oh don't worry. I knew that wasn't what you meant. :) I was only laughing and teasing you. Sorry! :)
I will definitely be praying for Mr. P. When do they fly out (or have they already? I have a hard time remember dates!)

Love ya!!

May,
