And Joy Comes In The Morning


I cannot even begin to tell y'all how full my heart is right now. After Monday's post on my depression journey, I'm overwhelmed by all the support from so many of y'all. I know that there are many folks that struggle just like me and it breaks my heart. So many of you mentioned, "and joy comes in the morning", and I kept playing it over and over in my mind. It's so true. God is faithful and has promised us 'new mornings'.




Today, I'm moving on as best I can and giving y'all a little peek into some of the things in my life right now that are my saving grace. 




I'm an animal person, always have been, an urban farm-girl at heart. I haven't talked about my chickens in a great while and some of you new friends may not know that we have quite a few free rangers over here, not to mention lots of cats, dogs and cows. 


Now that the days are warmer, I spend the evenings outside crawling around on the ground taking pictures of these little critters that bring me such joy. Thank you Lord for the critters. 




It's quite a funny farm over here, but I love it, fills me with so much happiness. Today I'm wishing y'all a joy-filled day and so many thanks for all the love.

    1. Thank you Robin. And I could rave on about my chickens ALL day! Love them so much! They provide much needed comic relief around here year round. Tell hubby that I highly recommend them! ;)

  5. Love your little farm and all your animals. They can bring a smile to your face. So glad you are feeling better. Hopefully the weather will stay nice so you can get out more, we could all use that. I am tired of the cold weather. Praying for you everyday!

  6. This. All of it. Seek those things which give you that moment of grace...and remember - God put these things before you today just to bring you a small moment of joy (at least I think so). He cares so much for you, that He put all of it on display FOR.YOU.

    Is it weird to say that I truly believe you can see the Face of God in a chicken?

    *grin*

    No, I don't think it's weird at all...but, I have a thing for Birds.
