Project 52: Hunger

     My husband and I have five Barred Rock hens.  There names are Molly-Come-Lately, Mabel, Mildred, Myrtle, and Maybe-It's-Maybelline.  The girls are always hungry.  They happily run about our yard greedily gobbling bugs.  
     As much as the girls love bugs they also love table scraps.   The cry of, "Here chick, chick, chick!" brings them scampering for a handout.  
     Spaghetti is one of their favorite treats.  Dangle a handful of pasta over the beaks and the girls become world class athletes.  They leap off of the ground, point their toes and pluck the spaghetti out of our fingers.
     They seem to enjoy the game as much as we enjoy watching them.  
     Nice jump, Myrtle!
     This is how they usually spend their days.  Strolling through the daffodils, eating what bugs them.
    In Psalm 63 (selected verses) King David compares his longing for God with hunger.  He prays:
O God, you are my God, earnestly I seek you;  
my soul thirsts for you, 
my body longs for you in a dry and weary land 
My lips will glorify you.  
My soul will be satisfied as with the richest of foods; 
with singing lips my mouth will praise you.

       Did you know that you  can provide a chicken through the Compassion Ministry for a family in need.  A chicken is much more than a meal for a family living in poverty.  One chicken can provide a source of income, manure for the vegetable garden, and a steady supply of eggs.  Visit their gift catalog.  

     What are you hungry for?
