Rainy days are good days. Things grow on rainy days. I was reminded of this recently. It's kinda stuck with me the past few days.
Without rain in our lives....we wouldn't experience that freshness and cleansing that we need to bring good things to our paths.
Rain cleanses and purifies. Washes. Heals. Keeps us from becoming dry....spiritually and naturally.
It's the way God designed it to be.
Oh!!!!....I got my new red boots!!!!!!!!!! All so pretty and shiny...and they fit like a charm.
I wore them around a bit day before yesterday......I got a little dust on them from going inside the barn to check on the baby chicks.....I had to bring them in and wipe them off.
I'm kinda funny like that.......I tend to want to keep things looking as new and shiny as long as possible. Ha. I guess it's a "quirk" of mine.
This past week has been a strange one of sorts.....my father has been in the hospital all week...however, he's on the mend and will most likely go home tomorrow....God is good and I am grateful that my parents are still with me and active in my life.
So, my hubby and I were on our way out a few mornings ago and we passed by the barn and were beckoned in to find.......
These little babies!!!!!!!! I was so thrilled to see something so wonderful and "chirpy"...I think my heart skipped a beat.
I've gone out everyday that I can to say hello and let them hear my voice. I still have yet to pick one as a favorite and keep it in my pocket!!
If I'm not mistaken, my mother n law said there are about 50....or close.
Some Rhode-Island Reds....some banty hens...( I'm sure I'm not spelling this correctly...but, I STAND to be corrected....LOL!!!) However, they are just adorable.
I can't remember what the little black ones are...but, they are precious to me and that's all that matters.
Yes, call me the Mother Hen......I can't help it. I'm really enjoying the hens around here.
And to be honest...they are a welcoming committee to me....and I do believe they are enjoying me.
Roll Call happened this afternoon when I came home from the hospital.....and my hubby was driving up the driveway in time to see it........
Sometimes, seeing is believing. ha.
I bet you can't guess what they were waiting on??????
Sometimes I look at them and they look at me ........and it's like I'm the "chicken whisperer! ".....ha ha ha.
My husband and I were walking out from the barn this afternoon and he stopped and were watching the hens move about the yard...and he said.."it's funny how their heads bob when they walk and not when they are running." I never had paid attention to that until he made that comment....I noticed and just giggled.
They truly are funny.
Yesterday afternoon I was on a photo shoot and the park we were photographing in had beautiful roosters and ducks and chickens....and as we were walking back to the car, this little mama and her babies were in the grass off to the side.....I couldn't help myself...it was so precious to see.
I can't help that I find joy in things like this....sometimes I wonder why God gave me such a heart for animals.....but, if that is what keeps my heart tender...then, so be it.
Take pleasure in the small things that life brings. Even the rain drops. It's a reminder that God is bringing something beautiful to you.
Over and out,
