Birds & Blooms

Liz & I had a great time @ Creation Northwest this past week.  I love spending this time with my girls.  While we were there Lauren came home from her time in Germany so she wasn’t able to go this year. 😦

When I’ve been gone I love to come home and see how my girls {chickens} are doing and my garden.

Here is the rooster that I specifically ordered to 'do the job' and it turns out he's a fryer.  I promise to NOT blog about where he ends up (and the process involved).

They are so funny as they are now trying to find their 'big girl' voices.

Something that the pictures don’t show {because I won’t allow it…of course} is that the weeds have taken over.  It’s hard to have a beautiful, weed-free garden when life keeps taking me here and there.

It’s a wonderful thing though when we can overlook the yuck and gunk in our lives and find fascinating beauty.

Where is the beauty that you can bring focus to today that will give you a bit of  joy in an otherwise {possibly} overwhelming life?

  2. I thought hard about an answer for your question, and one word (or rather person) kept returning to my my mind..my current beauty has to be my marriage..my safe harbor in times of troubled seas.. While the world does seem VERY weedy..I can take refuge in the man God blessed me with:)
