The Splendor of Simplicity

Today we made yet another trip to Tractor Supply (the beautiful haven that it is) and returned home with not only feed and pine bedding, but lo and behold…we brought home six little babies: three yellow chicks and three black chicks. They’re adorable!
So now we have two hens outside and six chicks in the sun porch. And you know what?
I love it.
I love getting up in the morning and petting my hens. I love watching those baby chicks at rest. I love to hear their small chirps. There’s something very special and significant about enjoying God’s creation.
Oftentimes, I’ll sit on the dirt in the chicken run and watch my girls. They are so carefree and simple. And being out there with them is simple and beautiful. I feel the breeze on my face and lately, the sun too. When I’m with them, my heart is at peace.

There is such splendor in the simplicity of God’s creatures and resting in His creation. Thank you God for those moments of respite.
Our Six Chicks

Psalm 148:7-13 
7 Praise the LORD from the earth, you great sea creatures and all ocean depths, 8 lightning and hail, snow and clouds, stormy winds that do his bidding, 9 you mountains and all hills, fruit trees and all cedars, 10 wild animals and all cattle, 
small creatures and flying birds, 11 kings of the earth and all nations, you princes and all rulers on earth, 12 young men and women, old men and children. 13 Let them praise the name of the LORD, for his name alone is exaltedhis splendor is above the earth and the heavens.”
