Burke Family News

Our family is having a busy spring!

We’re about half done calving. Tim moved the new babies and their moms to a pasture than I can see from our bedroom. I love watching the little baby calves running around the pasture.

Cody and Morgan are busy with school. This coming week they’ll be attending the FFA State Convention in Lincoln, where they’ll each participate in several events. Next Saturday, Cody takes the ACT test and has Prom. There have been—and will continue to be—cattle shows most Saturdays from now on.

I’m enjoying working on the paper—I think that if I could stay awake for 24 hours, I could fill all of them doing things with the paper and implementing new ideas! I am blessed to have something to do that I enjoy so much. When I feel overwhelmed, I’m reminded of Ecclesiastes 5:19, “. . . when God gives any man wealth and possessions and enables him to enjoy them, to accept his lot and be happy in his work—this is a gift of God.”

My wealth is in the form of family and friends, I have plenty of possessions, and I am so blessed to be happy in my work.
