I love going out to the hen house and gathering all of the brown, and occasionally green, eggs. I love searching for my duck egg, that is occasionally found just lying on the ground. She hasn't laid an egg all week and that is unusual for her. I love watching the bees fly in and out of the hive, taking the precious pollen that is eventually turned into honey to feed them. The queen made it into the hive where she is busy doing her thing! We are still feeding them, and will continue until they are better established.
I don't know what life God would have me to live other than the one He has given me here. My times are in His hands and I trust Him with all that I have, since He gave this to me anyway. Sometimes I think I would like to live in a farm house with lots of land around me. But I don't know if that's what God has planned for us. Until He leads us in that direction, I'm very content to remain here, in the house He gave us. Simple. Practical. That's the way I want to live out the rest of my life on this earth. We are just a vapor, you know.
As we go about our busy lives, we need to try and not become distracted with what others have. Some people have all the latest technological implements, and everything that they could possibly want. But still, they are not happy! You know why? They haven't put God first in their lives! Yes, It's as simple as taking a few minutes of our very busy lives, to read the Bible and pray. For others. For ourselves. For our families. Just give Him some attention. He's waiting! Have a great weekend! Blessings from Bama!

|Checking to see if the queen was released. Guess which one is hubby?|
|Everything is looking good!|
|Is that the queen? No, it' a drone.|
|Keeping the pressure regulated was harder since it only contained four quarts.|
