This is the Easter lily that my wonderful Honey
bought for me a year ago. 
This is the first time ever that I've gotten
one to re-bloom!

Praise the Lord, O my soul;
all my inmost being, praise His holy name.
Praise the Lord, O my soul,
and forget not all His benefits....
He satisfies my desires with good things,
so that my youth is renewed like the eagles.

We have lumber!

Homer's Hens are getting a new home!
I'm not sure if I am more excited about them getting
 a new home, or us doing some construction work again! 
It's been 10 yrs since we've built anything!

Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom
 that cannot be shaken,
let us be thankful,
 and so worship God acceptabley
 with reverence and awe.
