A Poultry Miracle

Sorry for the long pause between posts, but we have been without internet for days now, due to what we assume was a cell tower out of commission. Whatever the reason, we're happy to be back in the land of the web.

We had a great example of God's love and a demonstration of the power of prayer this morning, which will not be soon forgotten by Caroline. She's still working through an emotional time right now, with quite a few teary moments and a bit of clinginess. Well, Ken burst into the bedroom this morning to tell me that the pet chickens were not in their pen, and that one wall of the pen was on the ground. There are stray dogs all around, as well as cats and larger chickens, all of which we've had to shoo away at various times, to protect our new little chickens. So my first thought was that a big dog had come in the night and had a feast. Caroline was quite distraught, as you can imagine. After a few minutes to calm down, Ken suggested we pray for the missing birds. Caroline was unable to pray due to her tears, so she asked Ken to pray, and she added her "Amen" at the end. I am not exaggerating when I say that within 30 seconds of the prayer for their safe return, the chickens were at the back porch pecking around for their breakfast. God is not only good, but sometimes He's really fast. It is good to know that the "little things" in our everyday life matter to our Heavenly Father, as well.
