There are many things I love about fall; cool weather, the beautiful red, yellow and orange leaves, shorter days and the State Fair. When I was in high school my Uncle Tom had close ties with the Cooperative Extension Service. He would encourage me and my sister, Laurie, to enter our summer arts and crafts projects. We would help our mom can jams, jellies and vegetables and we did a few sewing projects. We entered theses items in the “State Fair of Louisiana”. It really made us proud to bring home a ribbon of any color, because competition was very stiff! The prize money was great too!

“The inconveniences that are sometimes associated with release from our labors here are necessary in order to accelerate the work there. Heavenly Father can’t do His work there, with 10 times more people than we have on this planet, without on occasion taking some of the very best sisters and brothers from among us. The conditions of termination here, painful though they are, are a part of the conditions of acceleration there. Thus we are back to faith in the timing of God, and to our need to be able to say “Thy timing be done,” even when we do not fully understand it.” Neal A.
