And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried; they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It is my people: and they shall say, The Lord is my God. Zechariah 13:9

Resurrection of Mr. Dumpy
Announcing from the Weidenhammer farmstead, and not that lush, sunny island somewhere, that Mr. Dumpy is up and running! He hated the word "junkyard"! Hee! Hee! Something (don't ask me what they call it) was broken - something connected to the clutch. Should be good for another 100,000 miles! There is a crew of very happy and relieved men. We certainly aren't rich farmers, but only in paper money. We have so much to be thankful for and so many blessings that shower down upon us that have nothing to do with money. Some of those blessings, or maybe I should say many of those blessings, come to us through hardships like broken down equipment and imperfect circumstances. So... "Thank you, Lord, for the roses, but thank you more for the thorns."
