Getting to know God together.
COLLECTING THE EGGS.
Giddaye, lambs of God!
Every morning ( just about ), when we are having our own devotions on the front verandah, we can hear a lovely noise. It is the sound of our hens laying eggs! We have three of them, one cream, one tan and one black. Their names are Henny, Penny and Jenny. They get very excited when they lay eggs, and make such a delight-ful fussing and clucking. It makes us happy just to hear them so pleased with themselves. Their eggs are all nice and big - they can weigh as much as ninety grams. One chook lays speckled eggs, but I don’t who does it, because they all lay their eggs in the same chook house. The eggs are delicious to eat, much better than shop bought ones. We have them scrambled or boiled. They are nice with hot buttered toast.
Have you ever thought how marvel-ous-ly
God planned food?
Especially human food. Animals get looked after too, but humans have such a variety of stuff to eat. ALL of it comes from the earth God made, by the way. You might say that chips, chocolate, ice cream and things like that don’t come from our earth. And you might say God didn’t make them. But you would be quite wrong.
We have many blessings from God
that we often don’t think about.
Those blessings are for all people.
Here is a Psalm that thanks the Lord:
unto the LORD with thanks-giving;
sing praise upon the harp unto our God:
Who cover-eth the heaven with clouds, who prepar-eth rain for the earth, who mak-eth grass to grow upon the mountains. He giv-eth to the beast his food, and to the young ravens [ big black birds ] which cry....
He giv-eth snow like wool: he scatter-eth the hoar-frost like ashes.
He cast-eth forth his ice like morsels: who can stand before his cold? He send-eth out his word, and melt-eth them: he caus-eth his wind to blow, and the waters flow.”
( Psalm 147: 7 -17).
Do you know the song, “All things bright and beautiful”?
It goes like this:
bright and beautiful,
All creatures great and small,
All things wise and wonderful,
The Lord God made them.”
I am going to make my lunch now
( I’m a bit late writing the lambs’ devotion today!)
I will have some
Nardia and Zachary say this one:
thank You for the food that You have provided.
Bless it to our bodies.
In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
