The other morning, I was greeted at our door by a lady from the area, Barbara, bringing a chicken to us.  A chicken is a traditional gift given for various reasons…in this case a thanks.  We had helped her baby brother over the course of several months, so her parents wanted to show their gratitude.  I am always humbled in these type of situations—for someone who doesn’t have incredibly much to happily give out of their little.  It is definitely a reminder to be generous with what the Lord has entrusted to us!

Anyway, Malachi has been extremely excited about the chicken laying around our yard now.  The day it came, he greeted everyone who came to the house with “I have a chicken.  Do you want to see it?”  It’s great how kids get so excited about anything new!
