sledding in a winter wonderland... with a chicken
it ain't easy getting outside. so much easier to enjoy the warmth of a fire on a snowy afternoon. a snowy monday afternoon. a snowy afternoon weeks into major changes in your life. and the transition isn't necessarily smooth sledding.
henry started at the local school a week and a half before a two week christmas vacation. he loves school but we've had some bumps in the road. all typical of raising a spirited chicken farmer. i am really proud of the young man he's becoming. so inquisitive and such an imagination.
i am learning to trust God with him. not easy loosing the grip on the first born. but i am learning that the possessive love produces strongholds. and God's love is the love that draws and frees and grows and releases and creates a safety net that possessive love tries to counterfeit but ALWAYS comes short.
