They also brought wheat and barley, flour and roasted grain, beans and lentils, honey and curds, sheep, and cheese from cows’ milk for David and his people to eat. For they said, “The people have become exhausted and hungry and thirsty in the wilderness.” 2 Samuel 17:28

Father of Lights, you created the sun, moon and stars to give us light and food.  You sent your son Jesus the great light of the world to give us life.  Out of your hand comes every good gift…we find delights at your right hand every day.

The community gathers around this pool of water to witness a baptism.

Now when all the people were baptized, and when Jesus also had been baptized and was praying, the heavens were opened, 22 and the Holy Spirit descended on him in bodily form, like a dove; and a voice came from heaven, “You are my beloved Son; with you I am well pleased.”

Luke 13:34

O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the city that kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to it! How often would I have gathered your children together as a hen gathers her brood under her wings, and you were not willing!

The Lord has blessed the farm with chickens.  We are willing Jesus, gather us and our children under your mighty wings in these days of many troubles.

 

The Thanksgiving Sacrifice

“And this is the law of the sacrifice of peace offerings that one may offer to the LORD.  If he offers it for a thanksgiving, then he shall offer with the thanksgiving sacrifice unleavened loaves mixed with oil, unleavened wafers smeared with oil, and loaves of fine flour well mixed with oil.

The Holy Bible: Leviticus 7:11–13

Worship in the Chicken Coup
Worship in the Chicken Coup

Inside the finished chicken coup, hearts turn towards heaven and praises are offered unto the LORD, the giver of all good things.  Receive our unleavened hearts, cleansed by the sacrifice of your Son Jesus.  Smear our souls with the oil of your Holy Spirit that we may be living sacrifices unto You oh LORD our God.  Hallelujah!

He answered, “Have you not read that he who created them from the beginning made them male and female, and said, ‘Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’?  So they are no longer two but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let not man separate.”  Mt 19:4-6

Seven couples officially tied the knot in front of God, the courts and their witnesses.  We pray these marriages will thrive for a lifetime, that spouses will draw near to you God and that you God may give them grace to love each other and power to resist the temptation of divorce.

Bodas 5 Abril 2014

We pray God, that your Holy Spirit may indwell in these hearts and their homes.  That mothers and fathers may enjoy an intimate communion with you Jesus.  That children will be protected by strong parents who love and serve you God and each other.

We thank you God, for your tender mercy and kindness.  This sweet love you designed is beyond what any human heart can contain.  Our love overflows and we Bless you God!

Jesus thank you for teaching us the true heart of the Father towards marriage.  Thank you for sending us your Holy Spirit to help us put your words into practice and reap the eternal benefits of obedience.

Give us the wisdom and power to live up to our marriage commitment.  Let us not fall for the lies of this world concerning divorce and give us Lord Jesus dominion over immorality.

SHE

Let my beloved come to his garden,
and eat its choicest fruits.

HE

I came to my garden, my sister, my bride,
I gathered my myrrh with my spice,
I ate my honeycomb with my honey,
I drank my wine with my milk.

OTHERS

Eat, friends, drink,
and be drunk with love!

Song of Solomon 4:16-5:1
