Dreams come true.
I told Storm "I'm afraid to even think of a donkey!" lol It's all coming together - God puts each person in my path & I AM GRATEFUL! I walk around here singing "Cluck cluck cluck!" I've got a coop going up!! In my big back yard... Acres for my chickens to esplore with me, I imagine forest walks with the dogs already. Do you know cxhickens talk? I'm learning the lingo now. Bwak bwak! I asked the universe for chickens and the next thing I know I was getting 3 chickens! I'm so excited to meet our girls.
The chickesn will not be eaten... yes we will eat the eggs, use them for baking, etc.
I can see the coop from my kitchen window! Bird has a front seat to the building process and is also excited about the feathered friends arriving (I think).
I visited a book store in Haliburton - I needed a bible (chicken books) - someone took my bible... I thought if I bought myself a new one, I would 'get over it' sooner. I turn to my bible for many reasons - like naming a chicken coop! Why not? Also naming chickens.
I turn to my bible for more reasons that I realized, I was very disappointed when I discovered it gone.
At Masters Book store in Haliburton- when I asked specifically, if she had a Max Lucado study bible - responded "...yes & its FREE for you." "I was waiting for the right person to ask." Silence.
I am not shocked. :) I see God working his miracles EVERY day! I was caught of guard and choked up. I said THANK you and accepted my gift. I love this book store (& my replaced Max Lucado Bible) - it has everything including How to change your mind by Michael Polan (great book) surrounded by God's reassurance - great kids books - it's a calming, charming book store in a perfect tiny town in Canada. I ended up leaving with my Max Lucado Bible & several other books & look forward to my return visit. As I drove home, basking in Gods love I forgave the person who took my bible. Who knew? Not I.
The word of God is comforting, try it. I picked up a new bible also because of the illuminated art, I'm drawing in it as I search for chicken names. 'The chicken sees' from Be Here Now by Ram Dass will be the first painting in the coop - of course it will be decorated.
I'm slightly distracted from painting - pinning chicken toys!
I can't remember being happier...
A friend commented "I'm happier in Haliburton" - I instantly thought- Yes! I'm happier in Haliburton & Now 'm getting chickens!! I'm painting art for the coop & sigh or tow - come back for mor coop up dates. Shout out to Norman! (& Storm) for their support & help from everything from research to building to tolerating my constant string of coop name - texts.
lol CLUCK CLUCK! How about 'Mother Cluckers!'
Got an idea for he name of my coop - e me.
No cocks permitted.
You know.. I don't know what to advise you or anyone for that matter, it's such distressing times. I only know that my relationship with Jesus is what brings me peace& keeps it together (for me)... & chickens soon appear & more.
I thank the Lord every day - as soon as my eyes open.
Try it. Try.
I hope you take time for prayer, meditation & turn off the TV & NEWS and go outside & breath the fresh beautiful air.
Patriot Act - on Netflix - watch that. The George Floyd episode was empowering.
