It's White Wednesday and I'm working with my milk glass

Most of these pieces of milk glass came from my mother. (Ooops... just realized I left a set of salt and pepper shakers in there by accident!)
One of my favorite pieces is the one just above that is actually for bananas.
My mother kept this on her hutch for years.
Also, the bowl in the third picture is
also a favorite.
I'm still working with this and trying to figure out a way to "jazz" it up a bit. But just wanted to participate in White Wednesday.

Our honeydew fields in Mexico

This is a favorite picture of one of our honeydew fields in Mexico.

And this is one of my all-time favorite pictures taken at
one of our farms in Mexico.

It just doesn't matter where you live. The evening and sunsets are one of the most beautiful times of the day.

We finished this year's honeydew season today.
It's a great feeling!

Governor Rick Perry at the "Mayor's Prayer Luncheon"

The Honorable Governor Rick Perry

It is a tradition in the city of Mission, Texas for our mayor to host the "Mayor's Prayer Luncheon". It is sponsored by local businesses, but it is organized by the city, local churches and various volunteers. This year's event took place on Friday, May 7, which I believe is the World Day of Prayer. My husband and I attended along with several members of our church. There were about 800 people in attendance. Several ministers and church leaders spoke briefly as did our mayor, Norberto Salinas.

I was so proud of our governor as his speech encouraged everyone to pray fervently for not just our city and state but for our country and our world. His plea clearly bespoke his personal Christian beliefs.

One song the we sang that day was, "How Great is Our God". It was new to me and I know that from now on when I hear it I will remember the Mayor's Prayer Luncheon and the goal to pray daily for our leaders in this country.

I'm always proud to be an American, but on May 7th, I just felt a little extra proud... and so very thankful.

My husband and I are on the left.
