Every time you feel in God's creatures something pleasing and attractive, do not let your attention be arrested by them alone, but, passing them by, transfer your thought to God and say: "O my God, if Thy creations are so full of beauty, delight and joy, how infinitely more full of beauty, delight and joy art Thou Thyself, Creator of all!
- Nicodemus of the Holy Mountain

You can’t get to joy by making everything perfect. You can only get there by seeing in every imperfection all that’s joy.

New Chicks and Growing Bunnies

The bunnies have outgrown their nest box. They're really fun to watch as they begin to explore the hutch.

The chicks arrived this morning! All but one were healthy and well. One arrived dead. I haven't figured out which breed we lost, but it was one of the layers. Bummer.


  1. Everybody is so darn cute at this age!

  2. Your kids are getting to watch all kinds of little things grow! A great way for them to learn where their food comes from, eh? Super educational . . . and it's via real life!

  3. Mama Pea- It certainly is a good life, and you've helped to inspire me!
    Erin- They sure are! And that is a challenge at times as far as them eventually ending up on our table.
