Double Yolks!

Thursday, April 14, 2016

There's something special about raising your own chickens and having fresh eggs, so when my dad offered me a few of his older hens to make room for his new flock I jumped at the chance.

Levi came during his spring break and he and I made the necessary repairs to our abandoned chicken house so we could welcome the "Ladies" to their new home. They are all settled in now and laying, so everyday I get to collect beautiful brown eggs.

This week I got a "big" surprise... a double yolk!

Look at the size of this egg!

As kids we would get so excited when we had a double yolk. Mama would call us into the kitchen and we would all watch as she cracked the egg and two bright yellow yolks would fall out. It was exciting! As I write this, it sounds silly but it is true. It was like winning a prize and we all love to get a "little something extra". Don't we?

Double yolk!
Who doesn't love a double portion? I mean, two scoops of chocolate ice-cream are better than one anytime.

God loves to bless His children with double portions, as if His love alone isn't portion enough.

Look around today for those "little something extra's" He has in store for you and be sure to say thank you. He loves it when you notice and then praise Him.

Double Portion - Thank you!
It's fun to give gifts to someone who appreciates them. It makes you want to give them more!

Here's a Heart Rock for your Pocket:
" shall have a double portion of prosperity and everlasting joy." Isaiah 61:7

Wishing you JOY!



  1. We have a hen too. She's been generously giving us fresh eggs. :)
    That looks sumptuous.

  2. This just made my day. Thanks for this little reminder to be thankful
