Don't Depend Entirely on God.
A Colorado boy was visiting a cousin in New England about Thanksgiving time and observed the elaborate preparations being made for Thanksgiving. They had Thanksgiving in Colorado, but not on so grand a scale, and he inquired of his New England cousin the object of it all.
"Why, we thank God for the blessings of our crops."
"But you don't ask God for your crops, do you?" asked the Colorado boy.
"Yes, of course we do. Don't you?"
"No; we don't depend entirely on God for our crops. We irrigate."
