Update to Natural Gas Well

Update to Natural Gas Well

Last fall I posted a blog on how to locate natural gas underground with two coat hangers.https://sallyjadlow.com/how-to-find-natural-gas/?preview_id=4365&preview_nonce=bcb65bb450&preview=true Many people thought I might have a screw loose. I applied to the state of Kansas for a drilling permit. Then I engaged a well driller. This past week they moved their drilling rig onto my property and placed the drilling rig at the place my coat hangers crossed.  This past Thursday afternoon I went to see how they were doing. If they…

A Debt Owed

A Debt Owed

As I watched the Ukrainian conflict on TV this week, I thought of the debt we owe them. You see, in 1874, Ukrainians brought Hard Turkey Red wheat to the U.S. and planted it in Kansas. That is the variety of wheat that makes the bread and rolls we eat every day.  This variety is responsible for 95% of all wheat grown by 20,000 Kansas farmers. These Kansas farmers produce 18% of all wheat grown in the U.S. Half of…

The Magic Blanket

The Magic Blanket

A few years ago I made blankets for each person in the family for their Christmas present. They look knitted, but it’s only a series of one loop stuffed into the next one.  My daughter told me recently, “We love our magic blanket. Whoever gets under it falls asleep immediately.” I’ve had some trouble going to sleep lately so I decided to try the magic blanket that we keep draped across a chair in the family room. Instant sleep. Rather…

New Year-New Branchs

New Year-New Branchs

This year started off with a bang. We have a new branch on our family tree. Granddaughter Kate Nissen married Sam Armstrong in College Station, TX in a lovely outdoor wedding on New Year’s Day. She is the daughter of our daughter, Sara and her husband, Scott. The joy of watching our family grow never gets old. It takes a long time to grow family trees, but it’s worth the effort!

Why doesn’t ‘tock-tick’ sound right to our ears?

Why doesn’t ‘tock-tick’ sound right to our ears?

  A friend sent this to me. Hadn’t ever thought about this before.   POSTED ON OCTOBER 10, 2019BY TODDE Ever wonder why we say tick-tock, bit tock-tick, or ding-dong, not dong-ding: King Kong, not Kong King? Turns out it is one of the unwritten rules of English that native speakers know without knowing. The rule, explained in a BBC article, is: “If there are three words then the order has to go I, A, O. If there are two words then…

Obtaining End Time Oil

Obtaining End Time Oil

When I can’t sleep I get up and pray. The house is quiet. The phone doesn’t ring. Distractions are at a minimum. Last Saturday early morning was one of those times. I’ll share with you my exchange with Father God. 1/30/22 12:33 a.m.   Father, what is on Your heart?   My people die for lack of knowledge—knowledge I am so willing to give—that I am anxious to bestow. It takes time; much time and diligence to wait before Me—time…

Deer Vigil

Deer Vigil

A friend in Colorado snapped this picture and posted it on Facebook. I thought it needed a poem. Deer keep careful watchacross the flocked landscapewary of my slightest movementsignaling a threat to their well-being. While all aroundpristine snow blankets the areaand a pine treethey have chosen to nest underwhile winter holds this momentin breathless suspension.    

Ever Go Through Bad Stuff?

Ever Go Through Bad Stuff?

Did you ever wonder why God let you go through some unpleasant things?  I don’t know if you’re familiar with THE ELIJAH LIST ([email protected]). I get it in my inbox every day. They had some interesting insights in yesterday’s post. Here are some of the comments: For the past several years I have published prophetic words in January about what the Lord has spoken to me about the coming year. Looking back at it now, I am stunned by how…

A Surprise Visit

A Surprise Visit

This past Christmas we had a couple of non-family members join us. One surprised us with a visit from Mickey Mouse. Who knew one of Vic’s tractor buddies also has a passion for impersonating  Mickey Mouse? Great-granddaughter was in awe of our visitor.
