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.
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.
