He'll give you the hens of your heart
The verse I keep turning to is "He will give you the desires of your heart." Psalm 37:4. This verse is often taken out of context to mean that God will give you anything you want. All of us parents know that's surely the secret sauce to parenting. Want an ungrateful, entitled, selfish little human? Then go ahead and give them everything they want whenever they ask. The only exception may be the 12,571 days we've spent in quarantine - current parenting attitude:
The same is true with our Heavenly Father. Not the sombrero part. The part that He knows best and sometimes He's gonna say no for our good. Listen... He will only say yes when our desires match up with His will. How does that happen? He re-shapes our desires to make them in tune with His will for our lives. So they are our desires... but at the same time they are not. They are our desires, but they were put there by God! What a wonderful point of grace, mercy and surrender...

Here are a few of the finished product photos that were also included in the video. We still need to paint the exterior white and add five foot fencing (I researched that should be high enough so they won't be able to fly out) around the perimeter of the garden so they can still free range in a designated spot. If you have any questions about the design of the coop or general questions about owning chickens feel free to comment or message us!
|Brett found this automatic watering system we set up for the chickens. It works really well. You just need a bucket and water source close.|
|We wanted to be able to see into the chicken coop without actually having to go inside to collect eggs and feed them. We were happy with how all of this turned out!|
