Sunshine Thinking Inside the Box

Once again our cat Sunshine has stolen the show and given a different way to look at the common expression “think outside of the box” to indicate outside the norm, detour tradition or the expected. We received a few orders for school today and while we were of course more interested the contents, Sunshine was more interested in the box itself.  He  thinks thinking inside the box is best and enjoys doing it very much.  He has his niche for now, at least until the box is flattened and placed in a recycle bin.  On the other hand, we could reuse the beloved box instead and allow Sunshine’s new chill spot to stay.

Sunshine’s Slumber: Smarty Cat

We have books stacked nearby for ease of access and Sunshine thinks its a great place to take a nap.  He often provides comfort during the school day, resting close enough to hear his purring or sleep noises.  He chose a good book to rest near, Apologia’s Exploring Creation With Biology and two dictionaries.  Does that make him a ‘Smarty Cat’?

“Then God said,  ‘Let the earth bring forth the living creatures according to its kind cattle and creeping thing and beast of the earth, each according to its kind’ and it was so. And God made the beast of the earth according to its kind, cattle according to its kind, and everything that creeps on the earth according to its kind.  And God saw that it was good.” Genesis 1:24-25 NKJV

Your Arena of Battle

Your Arena of Battle.

 

Nancy Leigh DeMoss started a new series with lessons from the book of Joshua.  I missed a large number of them because I was unable to listen at the time of day the program airs on our local station and I just forgot to check out the website for the current lessons.  Thankfully, my schedule changed and I’ve at least heard bits and pieces of the programs.  Today I prayed over the verses, Acts 11:22 “News of this reached the church in Jerusalem, and they sent Barnabas to Antioch. 23 When he arrived and saw what the grace of God had done, he was glad and encouraged them all to remain true to the Lord with all their hearts. 24 He was a good man, full of the Holy Spirit and faith, and a great number of people were brought to the Lord”.   I was struck by the visit Barnabas made to Antioch and the encouragement he offered the leaders of that new church and the new believers.  The message he gave them was to remain true to the Lord with all their hearts and then he stayed to work with them for a while and a great number were brought to the Lord.

 

After spending time in prayer and getting to one area of prayer about my own spiritual growth, prayer time and maturity, I was prompted to visit the Revive Our Hearts website and look for broadcasts to listen to and notes to review.  I found myself in awe that the program I began to listen to addressed this area so specifically.  I am thankful for God’s Sovereignty and His provision.  This broadcast is so timely and I believe as I go through the remainder of the broadcasts and lessons I’ll be further encouraged and strengthened in many areas to include being a wife, mother, homeschool mom, community volunteer, Good News Club coordinator and teacher.  In the broadcast there is mention the prayer support needed and given to homeschooling moms.   I pray that these programs can be encouraging to others as well.

So much enjoyment can be had from watching chickens.  These younger ones were moved this morning and are checking out their new surroundings.

Towering Sunflowers

I took these pictures after I let the chickens out to free range.  The mammoth sunflowers tower above me and the top of the vine covered chicken yard.
