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.
From inside the little blue bungalow,
"I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh." Ezekiel 36:26
