Growing Chickens

DSC_0931 DSC_0938With ‘Big Red’ now in our flock (and super easily integrated I might say) we now have all red fertilized eggs. Today is the first set of eggs we’ll take to to the neighbours incubator.

I’d love to get myself an incubator but need to sell a few more things and pay off the credit card a bit more before I can do that. Regardless,  I can’t wait to see if they hatch and to get our own flock grown up to good layer status. Since the ones we have now are technically on loan, cloning them is our priority right now so we have our own set.

Our master plan is to have 12 or 15 laying birds in our newly renovated shed for our own personal eggs and partly for the neighbour to sell. Maybe we’ll sell some, not quite sure yet…

If these eggs do hatch (in 21 days) it will be 6 months before they actually start laying eggs themselves. All part of the fun. Exciting that we can grow our own flock though. Really its like printing money in a way. Just takes a bit more time and effort!

The hardness of their hearts – Willfully Ignorant

Archaeologists just like any other professional in their field often have a hardness in their hearts, a specific bias against the bible. Its inconceivable as to why other than the fact that the devil actively works to brainwash people.

This is quite a telling article about how archaeologists interpret data that doesn’t fit what they already believe.

Some snippets, but read the whole thing!

A few characters on the side of a 3,000-year-old earthenware jug dating back to the time of King David have stumped archaeologists until now — and a fresh translation may have profound ramifications for our understanding of the Bible.

If Petrovich’s analysis proves true, it would be evidence of the accuracy of Old Testament tales. If Hebrew as a written language existed in the 10th century, as he says, the ancient Israelites were recording their history in real time as opposed to writing it down several hundred years later. That would make the Old Testament an historical account of real-life events.

According to Petrovich, archaeologists are unwilling to call it Hebrew to avoid conflict.

“It’s just the climate among scholars that they want to attribute as little as possible to the ancient Israelites,” he said.

Needless to say, his claims are stirring up controversy among those who do not like to mix the hard facts of archaeology — dirt, stone and bone — with stories from the Bible.

2 Peter 3:5 But they deliberately forget that long ago by God’s word the heavens came into being and the earth was formed out of water and by water.

Endlessly Eating

Hot off the heals of our FiddleFest and first official family camping weekend, I feel bloated. We pigged out like crazy. I did anyways. I feel like I’ve been eating junk food nonstop since we got back. After all,… we had all those bags of chips, chocolate bars and other goodies left over.

Gotta eat them before they go stale right?!

Seriously, we are such a blessed bunch, our family, and all those in Canada. Really endless food for the most part. We need to thank God for these blessings, while at the same time respecting what we do have an respecting our body as being the temple of the Holy Spirit!

How many times do you think about how blessed you are? For your house when it rains, for the sun during the day, for a cold glass of fresh water when you’re parched?

Thankfully for me, its always close to my mind. As we continue through the end days of the end of days, I think we need to be more and more thankful. Remember the economic collapse? Most have forgotten, news channels really haven’t spoken about it lately… Its coming! Capitalism by its very nature needs to correct and balance itself and right now there are FAR too many people living with FAR too much debt – us included. We need to get back to the idea of working and saving for what we purchase and that is really hard for me!

Anyways, before I start to ramble on, we are blessed. I’ve blogged about it before, I’ll blog again because its true and fresh every morning!
