Cows and Turkeys

We have cows on our farm.


And our cows pretty much know their place.  Which is in the field. And you'll notice that "field" isn't very green yet.  Winter still has a pretty tight grip on Central Missouri.

We also have turkeys on our farm.  Lots of 'em.  And they pretty much know THEIR place.  Which is in the barn.

But once on awhile you get a rebel turkey.

A turkey that just can't understand that it belongs in the barn.

The rebel turkey wants to come in the house.

This is a picture taken from my living room looking outside.  The turkey is sitting on the brick ledge of my front window.

It pecked on the window like it was knocking on the door. 
That crazy turkey just wouldn't give up.

Here is the same turkey a day later, on my porch, begging to come in.

PLEASE LET ME COME IN!!!  I can imagine this turkey being William Wallace and yelling "FREEEDOMMMMM!!!!!!!!!!!!"  (Name that movie!)

I can tell you this.  I did NOT let the turkey in my house.  Turkeys STINK!!!

Please pray for my sweet mother!!

I know, I know, I haven't posted in forever.  And I'm so sorry.  So please forgive me.  I promise to do better!  I really do.

But right now, I need your prayers for my mother.

Long story short, she has been having pain in her lower back, hips, and down her right leg.  It has been hurting for several weeks and the medications the doctor has given her just don't help.

So today she had an MRI.

We are waiting on the doctor to call with results, and a plan for how to make her feel better.

Would you please lift my mother before the Lord in prayer today?  I know that God is THE HEALER, and I know that He has everything under control. 

So please pray for healing for my mom, and pray that He would send her peace and joy.  She's been hurting for quite a while, and just doesn't feel very good.

Thank you all SO MUCH for your prayers!  And, just FYI, her blood pressure is normal, with medication, so thanks for praying for that!!

And I promise to catch up real soon!!!
