Being a "' C'hristian can get complicated. Jcsus never led us to believe anything other than that. Jesus once asked some of his .disciples, "'Are you able to drink :-the cup that I drink?"

The good news is, when we s tand for what is right and exalt Jesus as Lord it doesn't.matter what the world thinks, Jesus says we are then blessed. In fact, Matthew 5:12 says, "Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you." Persecution for Jesus sake puts us in good company. "Come exalt Jesus as Lord with us. Bible classes for all ages be- gin at nine Sunday morning. Services are at ten.

"If I get up one more time than I fall down I will reach my goal," If we truly want to be like Jesus we will do that with a passion also. Restoration Fellowship has a powerful music ministry?

Main (Harris 66) of beef and each pound of gain is worth 35 cents (customary charge for gain on small-grain pasture), the $30-$33-dollar in- vestment per acre for nitrogen fertilizer can yield a gross return of approximately $87 more per acre than natural production: (100 pounds of nitrogen x 25 pounds of forage per pound of nitrogen applied = 2,500 pounds, which divided by 10 pounds = 250 pounds of beef produced) x 35 cents per pound of gain = $87.50. After deduct- ing the $33 for the cost of fertil- izer. there is $54.50 l ft to help pay for other production costs. "From the simple example above, one can see the value of nitrogen fertilization in relation to profitability," Ball explained. "However, it is important to evaluate your own stocker en- terprise to determine what nitro- gen fertilizer rate will best meet your forage production needs. "If stocking is heavy, you will need a higher rate of nitrogen to meet the forage demand. If it's light, then you'll need less." '99 Chevy x-cab LT, 44K. '97 Mustang, 38K.

My hair is a silver gray color all over, except for a few areas at the nape of my neckl I am 52 and my hair makes me look 72. I would like to color my hair back to what it sed to be but have put it off because i am afraid of it looking too fake. What do you think? A. I would suggest that you go see your stylist and not go for the color bottle at walmart. I think it is a great idea to color your hair back to its natural color. You must take into consideration if your skin tone has lightened or darkened. If you color your hair too dark it will definitely look fake, and if you go too light it will have the same effect. You should stay with neutral tones, instead of red or ash. Gray hair tends to grab the base color of the product you are putting on your hair. If you are worried that you wont like the color after it is on your hair, go for just a semi-permanent color, which only last a few weeks. And remember that all color can be fixed, you are never stuck with an awful color, you can always go lighter or darker if need be. But the key is to stick with professionals when coloring, they were trained to do this and know tricks to make it look more natural.

Mole poblano is a can food composed of chocolate and several types of invented by the nuns, who had to cook for a bishop picky eater. It was hard to cook something for this please him. Somehow the nuns hit upon mole bishop really liked it. So a favorite Mexican dish was there in the kitchen of Santa Rosa, which you can how it must have been in colonial times. The g to us that when a nun was punished, she had to eat with tied behind her back? The Santa Monica convent, which is now a bizarre story to tell. This convent was ordered closed can government in 1857, because the government clerical turn. But the convent remained in operation as tine convent. It was operated secretly, with nuns in it, 1935. There is a church adjoining the convent, and there'. holes where the nuns could look through the wall and service. (From the church side, you can't tell what cause they are integrated into the ornamentation of interior.) Of course, they had to have help to operate vent, and the neighbors helped them. In 1935, detective from Mexico City discovered the convent, o cret door and entered. The convent was shut down by ment and became, along with all the artwork inside
