Harry Clucker

Meet Harry Clucker. If you are looking for the top dog, look no further. This is the guy! He is a very gentle roo with my kids and lovely to look at. Harry is a Lavender Orpington and he is almost 1 year old. We love to watch Harry find food and make his “chook chook chook” calling his hens over to eat whatever tasty morsel he has found.
According to my daughter, who calls Harry hers, Harry loves to eat watermelon seeds. She named him after Harry Potter. She can be found toting him around occasionally.

Our Fat Beagle

I have been sick the past couple of days. I hope you’ll forgive me for not posting yesterday and for the short post tonight.
This is our beagle Molly. Here she is shown laying on the back of the couch. I guess that she saw the cats doing it and thought, why not? She loves it up there!
We just took her in a few months ago. Our plan is to lighten her up a bit since she is on the unhealthy side. She is so attached to the kids, especially my daughter. She fits in perfectly with the family

A Promise is in the Air

I took this photo last year, looking out on my porch, over my sister-on-law’s house. I love the way that the sun is shining on the trees further out, as if to emphasize the light that is hiding behind the darkness.
A rainbow always makes me think of God and His promises. How He is true to his Word. Always. He is incapable of lying. I always stop and thank Him when I see this beautiful arc of colors stretching across the sky.
Not only are rainbows reminders of His promise, but they are also reminders of life. You can be sitting in the darkness of your life and look out to see that sunshine just out of reach. But the colors of the rainbow, sparkling in the mist, is not drawing a line separating us from that Light. It is the path to lead us to it. When we follow His Promises and His Word, we will be led to the Light. Then all of your problems seem so small in comparison.

Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering, (for he is faithful that promised;)
Hebrews 10:23

Being Thankful

In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
1 Thessalonians 5:18

15And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful.
16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.
17 And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, [do] all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.
Colossians 3:15-17

Goodbye Irene

Irene, our first Dorking. She was our shy hen. The hardest one to catch. We aren’t sure how she disappeared, but we are very sad that she did. We will miss that pheasant-looking chicken.

Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it.

Ecclesiastes 12:7
