Beautiful truth shared through a wise woman! May her voice continue to ring out truth to the world and may we have ears to hear...
Worth the time to listen ~ the earth is living, the nutritional value of the food we eat, social justice for all, and realizing that the mindset that got us to where our world is today, is not the mindset we need to make real change for good... Fabulous interview!
My hope is that we all learn and grow ~ and realize we must take action!

Place Your Life Before God
1-2 So here's what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don't become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You'll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you. (The Message)
Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Romans 12:2a
Well, at our little urban farm in the Seattle area ~ it was definitely the chicken, but now the eggs are starting to arrive!
Day 2 and we have a second egg laid. And because I was out working in the garden, I was able to discover who our layer is: BO PEEP!
So the story goes ~ I was out working in the garden and had let the chickens out to roam..., but Bo Peep went back into the henhouse and we could all hear her scratching about. The other chickens didn't care and went back to their own activities. A short time later, Bo Peep emerged and I checked the nesting boxes. One box definitely had been made into a "nest" bowl, but no egg.
I went inside to get something and when I returned outside, I discovered Bo Peep up on the rim of a bucket. Now, she had never done this before and it made me wonder... Was she trying to find a place to lay an egg? After we exchanged looks with one another and she insisted she wanted to stay on the bucket, I removed her and carried her back to the henhouse.
She came out again, was making chirping sing-songie noises and kept rushing about the yard looking here and there and here again... We repeated the being carried back to the henhouse a few times. Finally, she remained in the henhouse for a short time and when she came out ~ she rejoined the others chickens, was scratching and pecking again and eating strawberries. So.... I went in and checked the nesting boxes and, indeed, discovered she'd laid her second egg!
