mulberry season.

and your minds
in Christ Jesus.

Move in day happened yesterday!
The coop construction is done 
and Homer's Hens are home!
They seem to be loving their new space!

Fiber Content: Now that the gardens are planted
and the coop is basically finished, I hope to 
get back to some serious knitting! 
I do have at least 4 sweaters on my needles
that I try to pick up and work on at the end of 
each day. Even if I only get a row or two done,
I haven't gone one single day without knitting.
But now it is time to get serious again!

Have no fear of sudden disaster 
or of the ruin that overtakes the wicked,
for the Lord will be your confidence 
and will keep your foot from being snared.

and a GATE on the hen yard!!

He rescued me because He delighted in me.
