Last Day of February Thoughts

I think we are all ready to say good bye to February!  March can be iffy - either very spring like or full of wintery weather, but we know that after March, is April!  We can hang on a few more weeks!

Kyle and I went to lunch yesterday with our friends Kelly and her son Zeb.  We used to go to church together, but now are at different churches.  We enjoyed talking and hanging out together!  Lots to catch up on, lots of shared interests.  It was a good time.

I came home and made a quick dinner and then Tim and I went to our Connection Group from church.  We are studying the book of Ephesians.  This is the section we were studying last night.

Ephesians 3:14-21

For this reason I kneel before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named.  I pray that according to the wealth of his glory he will grant you to be strengthened with power in the inner person, that Christ will dwell in your hearts through faith, so that, because you have been rooted and grounded in love, you will be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and thus know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, so that you will be filled up to all the fullness of God.
Now to him who by the power that is working within us, is able to do far beyond all that we ask or think, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.

That power that is working in us is the same power that raised Jesus from the dead.  That's power and its given to us so that we can be strengthened in our souls, and that we can be rooted and grounded in love.  All so we can comprehend how God loves us and so that we can be filled with all the fullness of God!  I say fill me up, Lord!

Our hens are laying again, and its making me very happy!  It was so interesting that as soon as the days began to be a bit longer, the egg production started up again.  Now, its really in full swing!  Some of our girls are getting older, and won't be laying as frequently, but the younger ones will.

I want to thank you all for praying for baby and her mama.  Mama is well, and has been released from the hospital and baby has had so many tests and everything is fine.  So the consensus is that because she was early she needs a bit of maturing, so to speak.  If she feeds well, and has no more issues with turning blue (or dusky as they say) she'll be able to go home next week.  Grandma tells me that she'll get some nice photos so that I can share one with you all!

I hope you have a great day, friends.


  1. We are definitely ready for spring around here! I am ready for green and for everyone to be healthy again! Winter takes its toll.

    I am happy to hear the good news about the baby and her mama! You'll be having that shower before you know it. What fun it will be to celebrate with baby!

  2. Your Bible is very well used!!! That's a good thing. I'm sure you know that you can either get it rebound in leather or make your own covering. I did with mine using just a simple piece of material and doing it the old fashioned way...remember covering school books with a paper grocery bag? I did use glue to keep it on easier than just the folded cover opening. I was trying to see if I could send a picture to you here of my Bible but maybe I'll send it through Instagram DM.

  3. I love posts like this one with so many different topics and thoughts ... like a real visit with a friend! I so agree with you about March. Such an iffy month that can go in any direction weather wise. We have had some of our worst snowstorms in March in years past. Yet I must say I am ready for February to be over!

    So happy to get this update on Mama and Baby, as I have been praying for them. Will be looking forward to Grandma's photo!

  4. It took your post title to let me know today is the end of February!Can't say I'm sad to see it go...😄

  5. Such good news about mama and baby. Dusky sounds a little scary to me and I am sure that her parents put their trust in The Lord. I had a particular thrill to read your words: “The power that is at work in us is the same power that raised Jesus from the dead.”

    Yay for laying hens!

  6. I missed a few posts while we were in the country so I’m going back to catch up on the mama/baby prayer request.....

  7. Your Bible looks like mine! LOL. I just finally made a cover for mine to extend it's life a bit. I really like how it seems to hold it together!

  8. Hello March, I am ready for you! Oh I love a Bible that looks used:) I carry my Daddy's Bible to Church on Sunday that I gifted him in 1965! Thanks for the update on our Prayers working! Have a blessed day dear friend, HUGS!
