Those who plant in tears will harvest SHOUTS OF JOY. They weep as they plant their seed, but they sing as they return with the HARVEST.

Psalm 126:5-6

They Did It

They did it.
The chickens finally laid their first egg.
The girls and I were so excited you would have thought it was Christmas at our house. The funny thing is that we have not been checking the nesting box so it had been there for a while. Needless to say the chickens got sick of waiting for us to come and get it so they cracked it and our first egg we didn't even get to eat. That's o.k. there will be others.

Hello, Susan!

Was just sitting here thinking of what I'm thankful for...and YOU came to mind!:) What a blessing you've been and are, and I'm so grateful God has placed you in my life as a friend! Praying for you often! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving! HUGS!!!

PS--I remember the thrill when we'd find a first egg from our new layers...too fun!

Abi- you are too sweet. I am thankful also that God has brought us together. He knows who and what we need and when we need it. Hope you are feeling well and enjoying that little one and all the movement.
