“God is not a belief to which you give your assent. God becomes a reality whom you know intimately, meet everyday, one whose strength becomes your strength, whose love, your love. Live this life of the presence of God long enough and when someone asks you, “Do you believe there is a God?” you may find yourself answering, “No, I do not believe there is a God. I know there is a God.”~Ernest Boyer, Jr.

And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart with all your soul and with all your might.~Deuteronomy 6:5

life on the farm uhhh in the city

Although we live in the heart of the city we have turned our little spot into an urban homestead. This spring we have added 3 new chicks to the 3 hens we already have who are still producing 3 eggs a day.

We have just added bees, as Dan's project he is learning bee keeping from a neighbor. It is funny how people react when you tell then you are getting bees, they are either excited and think it's interesting or they are slightly freaked out. We have had to assure all our neighbors these are honey bees they mind their own business and won't bother you if you don't bother them. They are not attack killer bees!
Here Dan is checking the hives the filling in of the frames is called Brood or baby bees.

It's the bee man...before he got his full bee suit
