Climbing the Walls!

Caleb, our Spider Monkey

It's another busy day at Contentment Acres! I woke up at 5 hoping to catch the black snake that has been eating our chicken eggs. It is eating 4-5 eggs off and on, so I am expecting a large one or more than one. I need the eggs for the incubator. I lost all except one of the first chicks we hatched out due to temperature issues in the brooder.

Amanda found a black widow spider in the chicken coop. She came and told me and I grabbed a jar..(lengthy pause in which you remark how brave I am)..and asked Brandon to catch it! :-) We had a "homeschool moment" with it and then Clint took it to work with him.
Clint opted to work this weekend. Brandon is doing yard work for us. Amanda is heading the crew of her siblings in housework. I have been working on the bookstore most of the morning and worked on the ceiling in my office for a couple of hours.

My prayer for you today is:

Ephesians 3:17-19 That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.
