Update on Uno and D'oprah ..

Uno is 5 weeks old now ..  D'oprah is still being a good companion, ie. adopted mother .. she has, however, started laying again and I need to figure out how to get them moved outside.

While Uno seems to be happy and energetic, I still think she is stunted and "runty" ..  I guess time will tell how she grows out in the end..




At any rate, I hope these two become the best of friends so that D'oprah will FINALLY have someone that doesn't beat the mess out of her ..  poor baby!

This is for those who wait

Another day, another waiting game

A little different but it's still the same

I am here, but where's the one I'm longing for?

I'm having trouble feeling all alone

Will my heart ever find a home?

I want to hope but sometimes I just don't know

I know I'm not the only one



So we sing a lullaby to the lonely hearts tonight

Let it set your heart on fire, let it set you free

When you're fighting to believe

In a love that you can't see

Just know there is a purpose

For those who wait



I want to open up my eyes

I know that all I need is time

I'm growing stronger every single day

God, I'm going to lean into You now

Letting go of all my fear and doubt

I can't do this on my own so I'll give You control

I know I’m not the only one



The pressure makes us stronger

The struggle makes us hunger

The hard lessons make the difference

The pressure makes us stronger

The struggle makes us hunger

The hard lessons make the difference

And the difference makes it worth it

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Desperate

Seek and you will find, they say


but I've been looking everyday

for a way past this wall that's in front of my face.

I'm on hands and knees searching for my faith.



I know there's so much at stake

but I don't know if I can take one more pat on the back saying I'll be okay.

Can't you see me whole life is in disarray?



You've got me desperate.



I know You hear me,

Would You give me a sign?

Reel me in before I've fallen in line.

You've put me on a path I don't understand

I'm standing on a ledge waving my hands.



You've got me desperate (do You see me?)

Desperate (do You hear me?)

Desperate (will You help me?)

You've got me desperate.



I know You're my only hope

The only One who truly knows how it feels, what it's like when it all starts to fall

You're the One I can trust who hears when I call.



You've got me desperate.



I know You hear me,

Would You give me a sign?

Reel me in before I've fallen in line.

You've put me on a path I don't understand

I'm standing on a ledge waving my hands.



You've got me desperate (do You see me?)

Desperate (do You hear me?)

Desperate (will You help me?)

You've got me desperate.



Some things I'll never figure out

Until I let hope erase my doubt.



You've got me desperate.



I know You hear me,

Would You give me a sign?

Reel me in before I've fallen in line.

You've put me on a path I don't understand,

I'm standing on a ledge waving my hands.



You've got me desperate (do You see me?)

Desperate (do You hear me?)

Desperate (will You help me?)

You've got me desperate.



You've got me desperate. (Oh do You see me?)

Desperate (do You hear me?)

Desperate (will You help me?)

You've got me desperate!

Sparkle

(I'll have to finish our vacation posts when I can get some time on the computer with all the pics ..  moving on now.)

Sunday my "big" chickens were harassing my bantams ..  relentlessly.  For those that don't know chickens, they can be really vicious to each other!

One of my bantams, Sparkle, discovered that she could hop onto the bantam coop and then to the swing-up windows on the big coop.  She stayed up there and watched the action below --  large mean chickens growling and chasing her "sisters" around the woods.

"Hey!  Look where I am!"


"...  and look where YOU are!"


"I'm so special!"


Fortunately chickens have short attention spans, so pretty quickly the big girls forgot why they were harassing the bantams and went on about their foraging ..  Sparkle was able to join her flock and life was peaceful again.
