Our First Egg


I found it somewhat ironic that our chickens (well, one of them) laid their first egg on 9-11. In the midst of what can be emotional day of remembrance; a perfect egg lay...a symbol of rebirth and newness.

Though a day many remember of loss; we were rejoicing in our gain of a simple or "perfect" egg as Fiona put it. Like a rainbow...I felt this simple egg represented God's promise that even in a day of destruction and evil, He would make all things new.
