Shots, Round-up and Verse of the Week

What a busy weekend!! It is always good to look back on a weekend and know you got something worth while accomplished. We cleaned out the sheep barn (I'm finally starting to call it has always been know as the horse barn before the sheep took over). We created another stall and were able to bring all the sheep inside so their wool could dry for shearing. The barn has 4 - 12x12 stalls and 2 - 12x16 stalls so they have plenty of room. I was also able to give everyone their CDT shots and wormers. It gave me the chance to look at bellies and guess at how far along they are.
I like having them in a smaller area because it really tames some of the wilder ones down. I can spend more time with them and get some of the hay out of their wool before shearing. Of course it is more work to keep clean but I am anxious to get them sheared and start working on all that wool.
The 4th day of The Purpose Driven Life is all about eternity. Hope you enjoy this first paragraph from that chapter and the verse for the week.
"This life is not all there is. Life on earth is just the dress rehearsal before the real production You will spend far more time on the other side of death - in eternity - than you will here. Earth is the staging area, the preschool, the tryout for your life in eternity. It is the practice workout before the actual game; the warm-up lap before the race begins. This life is preparation for the next."
Verse of the week 1John 2:17
"This world is fading away, along with everything it craves. But if you do the will of God, you will live forever."
