Gathering Eggs

Bridget and Jonah are the egg-gatherers at our house. They have worked out a system between the two of them...Jonah usually carries the scraps bowl out of the kitchen, and he is in charge of manning the gate (to make sure no chickens are left outside of the coop and also to shut it when they are done). Once they get out there, Bridget gets to throw out the food, and they both collect the eggs. Then, since Jonah has to lock up the gate, Bridget carries the eggs into the kitchen and puts them on the counter.

Sometimes she carries them in the bowl, sometimes in her hands.
Always she carries them with a beautiful, proud smile spread across her face. And sometimes even while wearing a dress backwards, and zipped up to her neck. ;) She loves to have an important job around the house, and I love to see her working hard to do a good job.

Proverbs 31:17 "She sets about her work vigorously;
her arms are strong for her tasks."

That verse fits remarkably well!!! What a great lesson by simply gathering eggs.

PS - the backward dress zipped up to her neck is still pretty cute! :)
