Break Up Thy Fallow Ground

Sow to yourselves in righteousness, reap in mercy;

break up your fallow ground...
for it is time to seek the LORD,

till he come and rain righteousness upon you. Hosea 10:12

Please be praying for Jordan, Caleb and Ben. They are heading down to SMITE camp in LA tomorrow morning at 4:00 a.m. They will be learning and leading 5 day clubs while down there. So please be praying for a safe trip, hearts to be soft to the Holy Spirit, for many to be saved, and blessings on the preaching. Hope you all have a blessed week!

Shearing Sheep and the Zoo...

This weekend we went to St. Louis, with some friends, to shear my two Shetland sheep. They are staying at my Grandpa's barn because we don't have a place to keep them yet. We shear them once a year usually around April or May.

This is Rose Ayana. She has the thickest wool of the two and it is VERY curly.

This is Joanna. Shetland sheep are a heritage breed and are known for their quality of wool in hand spinning.

As you can see they are a lot darker underneath than they are on top. After we get the wool off, in order to get it ready for spinning it needs to be washed several times and then carded.

After we were done shearing we headed over to the St. Louis Zoo.

Penguins, Ben's favorite.

Take a look at that beak!!!

Wow! Cool color!

Isn't it so neat how God created each of His animals so uniquely? There are not any two exactly alike. The colors, shapes and designs are often very diverse. He is an AWSOME Creator.
