He tends his flock like a
He gathers the lambs in His
and carries them close to his
He gently leads those that have young.
With as many little ones as I have, life can get very chaotic at times and I love knowing that God watches over me, I have a place in His heart. No matter what happens God is completely trustworthy, and whether it is needing a place to live, my husband needing a job, or all the children coming down with Gastro within days of each other, He is in control. That is not to say that I wont be exhausted or sad at times, or that tough stuff wont happen. But when it does God is there.
This morning, the kids and I walked to the park to get rid of some of the energy that seems to abound in young children.
They had fun.
We then did some school work
and they are still having fun!
And after so much work and play, of course it is time for lunch. I make a very simple bread for our daily loaf. I have tried Sour dough but I am having trouble finding a recipe that we all like. I think it is an acquired taste.
This bread is super easy! All I do is place some water and milk in my mixer, add yeast, a little honey and a little salt. Then comes some bread flour, enough to make a sticky dough. I let the mixer knead it for me for about 5 minutes and then leave the dough to rise. After about 2 hours I split the dough in half, pop it into tins and let it rise for another 45 minutes. Then into the oven to cook and we have lovely fresh bread for lunch.
