Anyway this is what we did today in the balmy 70* weather.... Added on to Jack and Moses pen. I still need one fence post right there in the front and center.. But it will be fine for a few till I can get what I need.
The boys weren't quite sure what to think.........
Of course Moses was Sure he needed that leaf right there on the other side of the fence....
The chickens running out to enjoy the day and dig up whatever they can find!
Our church situation has been resolved for now.. I talked to our pastor last night.. He never got the email but that happens a lot with my email addy. Before I tell what he advised I want to say why we went to him.. As our pastor he is accountable for us as he is the shepherd/pastor of the church. He is there to advise us in what God would want and to encourage and teach us. He does it very well.
First he went over some things for us to be aware of.. Then said he didn't have a problem with us going to a church closer. But to go on a trial basis for a month and then get back in contact with him about our decision. Leaving it ultimately in our hands. He also told me that no matter what we would always be a part of our church. I did grow up there and so have my kids for a good part of their life.. I have Many friends and family there. Its hard to leave because it is comfortable and familiar.
Also last night he was teaching on the Sabbath.. It was very interesting and I would do a horrible job of repeating it all right.. But what I found interesting is that God designed the Sabbath for us to rest.... The early church went to church to worship, take up offerings and such on the First day.. But we were commanded to take a Sabbath.. Which before Christ died under the old law it was a day of rest with only the priest doing most everything as far as sacrifices and the temple..
Anyway I thought it was interesting.. Because everything is such a rush anymore.. Most moms have 2 jobs.. One they work at during the day and then come home to taking care of their family and house. Dads work long hours and on Saturdays they are trying to keep up with everything around the house.. There are so many activities that a lot of people think they or their kids need to be in everything. . Then they wonder why everyone is tired or stressed... I am not saying joining in Extra Curricular activities is wrong but some people don't know Moderation.
A day of rest to tune everything out and spend with the family sounds like an excellent thing to me..
