Joe Needs to Come Home
Joe has been gone since early Tuesday morning and isn't home yet - we miss him for many reasons but I found one BIG reason he needs to come home RIGHT NOW!!! We are having a big thaw here - everything is melting - so I went outside today to get the mail and I look down and see blood - hmmm, I thought that was odd so I looked around some more - yuck - there was squirrel fur - another glance yucky squirrel body parts - looked farther - I KID YOU NOT - LOTS of squirrel body parts - I'm thinking maybe three or four squirrel bodies scattered all over under all of that snow and now laying right in front of my door. Now, I'm the woman who wanted to be a mortician AND I love to dissect things too, but there is something different about mangled animal parts lying all over!! I'm thinking FIRST I will give Joe a hug when he gets home BUT THEN I will hand him a shovel and send him on a burial mission!!! So, I'm sharing this in case you happen to stop over before Joe gets home - don't think I'm a poor housekeeper/yardkeeper - it's just a squirrel war zone over here!
When you are harvesting your crops and forget to bring in a bundle of grain from your field, don't go back to get it. Leave it for the foreigners, orphans and widows. Then the LORD your God will bless you in all you do.
