Cute much?

A dear friend asked me the other day to take pictures of our new lil' chicks for her.
There is only a small window of opportunity (about three days) before the small fluffy balls begin to grow feathers and hit the ugly "in-between" stage.
So I found my little buddy Jade, he helped me corral the chicks and eventually we got a few good shots.

Freedom come

Looking in the mirror, seeing what has become;
The sparkle no more in the eye, but now the strong one.

Feelings built up like a wellspring of woe;
But can't face the crying that will come with the letting go.

Then turning to the things that stand in the way;
Instead of to the Hope that will always stay.

Not knowing true fullness is just within reach;
Open arms, healing hands, a faith that will never breach.

Struggling to hold on, there is something not known;
A seed already in the heart, just waiting to be grown.

Just a touch of His love will aid to understand;
The simple act of doing, be it hard to comprehend.

The power held inside, with the smallness of one step;
Will come to the rescue on the days of feeling inept. 

Obedience is simple, though insanely hard;
Though God's hand will bring strength, the way will not be un-marred.

But one thing always leads to another, before awareness comes to be;
You are running, you are flying... You Are Free.

It is the time of year that I love.
The yard, becoming beautifully green and now a canvas on which we get to add the colors of flowers.
It was my week to work outside with mom, so we both (along with some big helpers!) got our hands dirty, planting beauty in the dirt.
I snapped a few pictures at the beginning of the day, these were the only flowers planted that were actually already blooming.
For the rest we wait as some revive after a long winter and others germinate and grow.

The horse

Hast thou given the horse strength?
Hast thou clothed his neck with thunder?
Job 39:19
