"The sheep are out!"

Farmhouse Hubby:  Sweet the sheep are out...
Farmer's wife:   grrrrrrr
Farmhouse Hubby:  Can you help me?
Farmer's wife:  sure (grrrrr-ing on the inside)
 I decided a long time ago....after much prayer...and God fussing at me for my attitude...yes my attitude...
 I decided that if my husband asked me to do something and needed my help...I would say 'YES'...without
grumbling...without an ugly response...without being difficult....I would just say YES.
We chase sheep on occassion...sometimes the sheep go in the corral...sometimes they giggle and run past me...knowing if they run faster I will lose my breath quicker...
I wonder if God giggles at me....as I run breathlessly...knowing that He is really looking at my heart....not how fast I run!
"Living as becomes you with complete humbleness and meekness, gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another and making allowances because you love one another." Ephesians  4:2

Oh what a cute pic though!
I grew up on a farm and I know chasing isn't the funnest thing around. We used to have do it quite often.
