We have plenty of food to eat.
Thank you for this pile of dirty, stinky laundry;
We have plenty of nice clothes to wear.
And I would like to thank you, Lord, for those unmade beds;
They were so warm and comfortable last night.
I know that many have no bed.
My thanks to you, Lord, for this bathroom,
Complete with all the splattered mirrors, soggy, grimy towels and dirty lavatory;
They are so convenient.
Thank you for this finger-smudged refrigerator that needs defrosting so badly;
It has served us faithfully for many years.
It is full of cold drinks and enough leftovers for two or three meals.
Thank you, Lord, for this oven that absolutely must be cleaned today.
It has baked so many things over the years.
The whole family is grateful for that tall grass that needs mowing,
The lawn that needs raking;
We all enjoy the yard.
Thank you, Lord, even for that slamming screen door.
My kids are healthy and able to run and play.
Lord, the presence of all these chores awaiting me says
You have richly blessed my family.
I shall do them cheerfully and I shall do them gratefully.

I was excited to hear Frank speak because he is so good at public speaking but I also wanted to know more about the windmill issue because I honestly hadn’t heard much about it except that it was probably going to be happening.
First of all I am not opposed to Windmills. But I learned some things that made me un-happy and I hope doesn’t happen. For one- the Windmill Company was doing some things that were illegal and the Judge told them they couldn’t do some things like go and build wherever they wanted to because of zoning laws, agricultural resource laws, etc. So the Windmill Company said they will just change the law. Right now they are in their 14th edition of the new ordinance hearing (I had not even heard of the 1st hearing). If nobody in Bingham County (meaning the people) then this will get approved and then could potentially become a law. So if this gets approved as a new law it will not only affect Bingham County but all of Idaho.
Now I’m not an expert, but I do know that I like riding my dirt bike through Wolverine canyon, and Cory likes hunting out there; heck we like to drive through and do mini hikes out there. If the windmills are approved we won’t be able to do any of that and neither will anyone else. In fact if the new law gets passed we could be potentially seeing Windmills in the future out by Island Park, the Grand Tetons. Which I absolutely do NOT want that to happen. Idaho is a beautiful state and I appreciate the natural beauty. I don’t want it to look like Wyoming. I don’t know, but I don’t think Windmill being a Green concept is correct when we would be replacing our forest with metal towers.
There was a ton more that I learned at that meeting but for anyone who wants to learn more for themselves you can see the new ordinance at: www.co.bingham.id.us/PZ
The Hearing for this will be at the Court House in Blackfoot Wednesday Night (7/21/2010) at 7:00 PM. If you don’t have any plans and you live in Bingham County please come. I would hate for all the windmills to come up and then the people to voice their opinions when we have the potential to stop it before it starts.
