1 Thessalonians 5:8-11

But let us who are of the day be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love, and as a helmet the hope of salvation.

For God did not appoint us to wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for us, that whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with Him.

Therefore comfort each other and edify one another, just as you also are doing.

Greetings Bible Enthusiast!

Growing up in a city as I did, one of the great thrills of my life now is owning a small flock of chickens; five to be exact. There is something soothing about watching chickens pecking around the yard; for some odd reason, it gives me a sense of well being.

Then of course, there is the additional blessing of "fresh squeezed" eggs, as I like to call them. We even get a kick from hearing the rooster crow at four thirty in the morning; the neighbors don't seem to mind either!

When I count my blessings, I'm thankful for being able to own chickens!

God Bless You!
