I have failed! I failed the dessert fast I had going for the month of March. I gave it up March 20th at our church's day retreat for women. But I am happy about going 20 days without dessert. Unfortunately, I can't say it made an impact on my waistline because it did not. A reader of the blog challenged me on this and she was supposed to do it with me - she gave up before I did! Oh well, we have learned something about ourselves - we are weaklings.
On another front - the chicken coop. I am excited to report that a very kind lady has offered us her old chicken coop - completely free. My husband has been taking it apart slowly and is going to reassemble it on our property. I have been told the chicks will be arriving in April but won't be ready for a coop for a little while after that. This is very exciting for us because we didn't know how we would go about building a coop without spending any money at all and God has provided a way!
Lastly, Happy Easter everyone. Beyond the Easter Baskets and the Easter Bunny, if you are spending time with little ones this weekend be sure to tell them the real Easter Story - Of Jesus, Our Savior, who died on a cross that we might live; but don't stop there - with great excitement, share with them the Resurrection of our Lord and how He can live in each of us if we only ask Him to. Happy Happy Easter!
