I’ve been feeling a real yearning lately to draw nearer to God. I’ve been so consumed lately with the excitement of spring and all the chores that come with it that I get wrapped up in my own little world forgetting what’s truly important. For the past month, I’ve been reading the book of Isaiah. For some reason, today I felt the Lord leading me somewhere else. Wow, what do you know, I read 1 John. Obviously, God was trying to tell me something and I am so grateful for Him. He reassured me that I am a child of God and yet he also showed me that …
Dear children, keep away from anything that might take God’s place in your hearts.
1 John 5:21.
Okay, Less focus on all my hobbies and more focus on you. I just love how God works!
I ended up having a great day with my mom and boys. The boys were able to play outside most of the day. As soon as I finished my client work we all walked to the garden, watered our plots, and the boys had a hay day playing in the water. My mom and dad stayed for chorizo tacos and rice. After dinner, Gabe took Nehemiah to sk8board at Skate South. I stayed home with Ezekiel and we went on a 2-mile walk with my big fat dog, Boaz.
My poor baby boy Boaz. I love him soo much. He’s a beautiful long haired German Shepherd Dog. After the birth of Ezekiel, our German Shepherds, Zoe and Boaz, became outdoor dogs. Our home was just too small to contain humans and canines under one roof. Over the winter he got fat. I really don’t know how it happened but he did. So, I’ve committed myself (and Gabe, hahaha) to walk our fat dog every day until he sheds those extra pounds. Feel free to keep us accountable. I’ll do a blog on before and after pictures and track his weight as it goes down. If anyone has any suggestions on maybe changing food or what I can make him, feel free to share.
After our walk, I gave Zekie a bath and put him to bed. I then cleaned out the chicken coop. My chickens are looking great. When Gabe got home with Nehemiah, my baby boy explained to me everything he did at Skate South and gleamed in his excitement. It’s amazing hearing his thoughts and emotions.
That was pretty much my day 🙂 I just wanted to share how great my day went and give God the glory for everything he has created for us on this Earth.
My boys, Nehemiah and Ezekiel
My chickens are getting so big. It’s so fun to watch them develop as their feathers and combs are coming in. I currently have 3 chickens as one of my Wyandottes ended up being a Cockerel (Rooster). Des Moines Feed and Nursery took him back and have ordered me 2 more Wyandottes that I will receive on May 1st. I’ll have a total of 5 hens 🙂
