if we live in the spirit...

The Field Lab - Sun, 2021/06/20 - 1:45pm

Galatians 5:19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, 20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, 21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. 22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, 23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. 24 And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. 25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. 26 Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another.

a little pump action

The Field Lab - Thu, 2021/06/03 - 4:56pm

It has been over 2 years since I have been able to pump out of the arroyo.  Had a feeling I would be getting a chance soon so two days ago I changed the oil and drained the old gas out of the trash pump and made sure it would fire right up when I needed it.  I needed it this afternoon.  Was able to tank 2,000 gallons while the creek was running.  66,88,66, .375",B
