The sun was shin- ing. The breeze was a bit cool. Green was beginning to emerge from its long winter sleep. People had been talking about planting the early garden. That meant one errand was to purchase fresh garden seeds for the crops that endure the cold. Best laid plans do go awry! Other tasks and meetings took the next day, which was decent before the cold air swooped into town and country. And snow fell with more predicted. Those poor garden seeds may sit on the shelf for a long time despite the fact that the thoughts of fresh spinach have been whetting the taste buds since leaving the garden store.

Musicians were Erma Dillon, Lila Smith and Lonnie Arrants. Serving as ushers were Maurice Jeffery, Walt Willitts and Kermit Jeffery. The organ offertory played by Erma was an ar- rangement of'The Old Rugged Cross." Mel Willitts carried the praise micro- phone to those participating in the praise time. The prayer concerns list seems to get longer each week. However, it is good that Lonnie Arrants and John Dillon are both able to be back in the services. Pastor Ken's text was taken from Exodus 33: 12-23, which records a dialogue between Moses and God regarding God's call to Moses to be a leader. Seeking God through prayer is necessary for victorious living. Pastor Ken's outline of a sinner's prayer in- cluded the following three things: 1. Show me your way. We must know God in order for Him to show us the way. 2. Show me your will. We must follow Him even through difficulties, which may not always be comfortable. 3. Show me your glory. Are we too easily satisfied with what we see of His glory? We can always count on Him to be our rock and protector. We must trust, obey and follow Him. Visitors in the service were Sonny Johnson, Abby Hours for Friday, March 28 I will be in the office 6:30 a.m. to noon and out of the office 1 to 6 p.m. Tyler Chiropractic 201 N.

I Esbon ii By Glenna Fogo Colleen Baker drove to, Burlington, Colo., Sunday whore she visited her sister, Linda, and husband, Jerry Boyd. Colleen returned home Wednesday.

Grandparents'are Roger and Deanna Underwood, Esbon, Jeff and Laura Gruenbacher, Mt. Hope. Great-grandparents that this writer • knows about are Ken and Janet Win- ters, Hutchinson. Probably all of us have had a hard decision time. One that we want to do two things at once or be one place or another. This sort of problem happened to the Benoits this week. As we all know, Bonnie and Everett, Doug and Micbelle and Chad have been for weeks working night and day getting ready for this big production sale Thursday. Doug and Michelle' s daughter, Sidney, plays basketball for the Hutchinson Junior College women's team. This week the national women' s junior col- lege basketball tournament was in Salina and the Hutchinsori Junior Col- lege team was in the tourney. Wednes- day they would be on the floor but, of course, the night before the big sale is a busy and important time. Michelle was able to get away and go to Salina to attend the game and watch Hutchin- son win. That meant they would play Thursday evening but, of course, that was the day of the sale. With the help of friends who took over some of the evenings work, Doug also was able to go and watch the quarter finals of the tourney and see Sidney play in the game, which her team won. One night recently four vehicles were stolen in the Belleville area. The strange part of all.this was.that at least two of the owners of the vehicles had an Esbon connection. One belonged to Caden Callaway, grandson of Burdette and Janie. One belonge d to the daugh- ter Of Danny and Marcia Simmelink. Their daughter is Kelly and her hus- band. The third one stolen belonged to a cousin of Kelly's husband. Kim Davis from Esbon's Guaranty State Bank worked the first of last week at Smith Center. Guaranty State, Beloit, has added the First National Bank in Smith Center to their chain and Kim was there helping with the change over which took placelast week. Last Wednesday, Esbon relatives of Cheryl Hasbron, Fort Worth, Texas, were called to let them know she had undergone major surgery that day. All had gone as planned and she was re- leased from the hospital the following day. Cheryl is the daughter of the late Francis and Hazel (Mizner) Frohlich, who both grew up in the Esbon area. Cheryl is a cousin of Joan Broeckel- man, Ivan and Dwight Frost. Ben, Josie and daughter, Lacy Crisp, returned home Thursday after visiting relatives in the Long Beach, Calif., area. The Esbon Volunteer Fire Depart- ment was called out about 5:30 p.m. Thursday evening to extinguish a fire on Danny Simmelink's land. A fertil- izer applicator was being operated in corn stubble. The applicator caught on fire and burned, along with the stubble, and some fn'e got into Limestone Creek. A beautiful day greeted everyone at Esbon and at the Benoit Angus Pro- duction sale Thursday. The first big happening was Wednesday evening when the Benoit family entertained potential buyers, workers and friends to a steak dimmer at the#anch. Report- ing to me was Burdette Callaway who said how good it was and that there was a big crowd, maybe as many as 100. Thursday the actual day of the sale, the 25th for the Benoits, was perfect, A large crowd showed up and the many buyers present were ready to bid on the 147 bulls sold. The Benoits have sold bulls to ranchers all over the USA. This year I know one gentleman flew in from Texas, another was from South Dakota and that's the way it always goes. Penni Shipley, Coalgate, Okla., has been visiting her mother in Kansas. Saturday she and Teresa Shipley met in Wichita for a sister-in-law weekend together. Beverly and Dwight Frost were guests at a wedding in Gibbon Satur- day. The groom was Nick Converse, the bride was Nadalie Jurgens, the youngest daughter of the Frosts' son in law, Lonnie Jurgens. "Sing With All The Saints In Glory." Greeters Sunday morning at the Esbon United Methodist Church were Lila and Megan Frost. Wanda Thummei was the organist, Gale Burgess and Doug Dietz the ushers, Lane Under- wood assisted with communion of which the elements had been prepared by Deanna Underwood. Lily Walker extinguished the candles. Special guests for the morning were Megan Frost and six day old Mallory Rose Underwood. Pastor Gerry Sharp brought the message. Announcements made were a thank you from the Steve Obert fatnily was read; there will be a special "one great hour of sharing" collection next week, March 30; the lenten supper at Ionia will be March 30 and a "buddingame" party (all ages) at the Ron Reed farm on Highway 36. Wanda for a special asked for some- one to choose a hymn for all to sing. "He Lives" was selected. Pastor Gerry used a scripture reading from Matthew 9 and called his sermon "Miracles In The Long Haul." Pastor reminded ev- eryone that God will be with you all the way, someone is always there. God just doesn' t let anyone die and we must pray for healthy lives as we live. Bless- ings mentioned today were of the birth of baby Mallory Rose Underwood this week, John Frost having only one treat- ment left, Gale Burgess having his treatments narrowed down to two and Glenn Marihugh being improved. Fel- lowship followed. Although improving, Glenn Mari- hugh remains a patient in the Mitchell County Hospital, Beloit. Kansans who are basketball fans will find it necessary to find another team to get interested in as all three major universities in Kansas wentdown in defeat over the weekend. Now it's • time for baseball and it won't be long until football starts. The March community card party will be Sunday evening at 7 p.m. at the Village Cafe. Bring f'mger food.
