Wow it does help living in Southern California when the weather is nice. Or at least before it hits the 100's. Thank God for the sunshine. I love to sit on the front porch with my coffee and ponder life. Well at least for a couple of minutes before we start chasing sheep that have gotten out! The sheep love to get out of their fenced in area right before I'm heading off to church or work. It's never when your just sitting around lollygagging around. Last night we loaded our sheep on a horse trailer to move them to pasture. Of course they all get on-----except for one. My husband didn't quite feel like she should do the chasing, or the gasping for air as the one lamb runs right past your grasp. He felt like he should stand by the gate. The gate! So he can merely stand there and open it when the little lamb is exhausted and ready to get in the trailer to be with its mother. I'm exhausted too, I want my mother....I have often wondered why God said we are like sheep. I told God they have got to be the DUMBEST animals. I am sure God nodded when I was muttering to him my thoughts!
I decided to make my porch a little prettier since I will be there a little more often with the weather is so nice. Who knows maybe I'll even get a squirt gun and squirt the sheep as they run through my flower garden before church on Sunday!
