This weekend was a full one that enabled me to cross an item off the to-do list.. After our standard Men’s Prayer at church, I stopped by the Farmer’s Cooperative and picked up fencing and supplies: t-posts and wooden fence posts, woven wire and cracked corn for the birds. After a quick unload at home and a pick up of the chain saw and fuel, I headed off to help cut wood for a church member who has no real way to harvest alone. Cut for about an hour, then back home.
Once fed and stretched out, I proceeded to drive 38 t-posts and dig and set 5 wooden posts. Sunday was fence pulling day. Fenced in an area that has a 300 foot perimeter. It currently houses the chickens, and will be the home of milk goats when/if we go that way. Normally, I wouldn’t do such labor on Sunday, but necessity claimed the day. With some rooster issues and planned away time for Thanksgiving, we needed a larger area to house the birds. And it’s another step along the goat trail, should we end up with them.
On other matters: scripture memory. If you’re like me, memorizing scripture is a difficult process. Time is always robbed away and the best intentions foiled. Well. Tim Challies is seeking to help believers counter that trend. He’s started a weekly Memorizing Scripture blog session that will help participants memorize scripture together. It’s either a verse a week, or one longer passage over the entire duration, or both if you’re inclined. Stop on over. Find encouragement chewing on the word of God.
Happy Thanksgiving to all!
Solo Deo Gloria,
