By Leaps and Bounds Part 5: Everywhere a Chick, Chick!

 So the April rush is upon us, and we are beginning to be well known at the post office.  Last week, of course, we picked up our Laying Chicks and while there the lady mentioned that she thought she recognized our name (from previous years of picking up chicks). Faith and I just smiled at each other and thought: just wait, you will be seeing a lot more of us!  So this week we returned, this time to pick up 108 little peepers!! 
 That's right, our garage is currently full with Josiah's first batch of meat chicks.   Right now they are so tiny, fluffy and cute, it is hard to imagine them growing up to be big, fat, tasty chickens.

 Sleeping, eating, drinking and some more sleeping pretty much fills up their schedule, interspersed with plenty of peeping.

Next week we will be back at what's becoming one of our favorite early morning destinations... the post office, picking up yet another batch of poultry, but they aren't chicks............


Life: Rainy Days

If you walk in My statutes and keep My commandments, 
and perform them,
then I will give you rain in its season, 
the land shall yield its produce, 
and the trees of the field shall yield their fruit. ~ Leviticus 26:3,4

“But as for me, I would seek God,
And to God I would commit my cause—
 Who does great things, and unsearchable,
Marvelous things without number.
 He gives rain on the earth,
And sends waters on the fields. ~ Job 5:8-10
Let us know,
Let us pursue the knowledge of the Lord.
His going forth is established as the morning;
He will come to us like the rain,
Like the latter and former rain to the earth.  ~ Hosea 6:3
