As Doris Day would say…

Last year two chicken nests were sufficient. But now, since I have more girls,

things have become a little crowded.
I’m not very well versed on the ins and outs of egg laying. I’m not sure if they sit there and work one up, or if it just hits them and they think, “Oh my, I’d better get to a nest”. If the latter is the case,

then these girls were in a bind.
I feel certain that this

is a result of one of them thinking ahead. She probably figured that if she could pull this off, then the next day she wouldn’t have to fight the crowd.
So, I hurriedly threw together additional nesting space. This one has no divisions, but I figured it would do the trick…I mean, it’s better than all that waiting in line.

Then, I’ll have time to work on a whole row of individual stalls…with a top. The trouble with a nest that has no top is that it doubles for a roost, and that leads to a mess.
But, as Doris Day would say:
Que sera sera
Whatever they do they do
You just have to scoop out the pooh
Que sera sera

My favorite songwriter, Michael Card, says that we are part of eternity stranded in time. I like that. The thing is, even though we are stranded in time, time doesn’t stand still. With all of our busyness, we let precious moments and potential memories pass us by, all because we fail to take the time to make a space in time for that magic to happen.
“A SPACE IN TIME” documents my personal journey to create and embrace spaces where relationships are strengthened, life is savored, imaginations roam free, and memories are made.
I would love to have you join me on my journey.
