With Christmas right around the corner I hear this song more and more, and since the first time I heard it many years ago I barely get into the first sentence and I start to cry. It is one of my favorite Christmas songs.
Ryan Shupe has a new video out too, the song has been around a long time...if you want to hear an amazing Christmas album check out theirs, you will never listen to fave Christmas songs again without comparing their rendition.
Again the thorns and the cross, I lose it. Don't even get me started with the movie The Passion of the Christ - 15 minutes in or something like that and I was a sobbing, almost puking mess, I could not watch it. Never have till this day.
So with tears in my eyes, let's lighten up this post with something funny...or sad in a funny way.
The other day when I was out feeding, I was like Mary did you know... that you are almost naked? See how I did that?
Look at her bum, she has like 2 little feathers on it. I told her she is literally going to freeze her butt off.
This is called molting and why they wait till it gets cool is beyond me. Poor girl. You can see her back skin and her wings too, like looking at a chicken in the store.
The ducks with their down feathers are fine...in fact when I changed their pool water they got right in and I was like brrrr....baby. They molt too, but it does not seem as bad...maybe cause they are bigger?
So I did want to say we lost Laverne in October. It was around the devastating shootings in Las Vegas and my little chicken was just a blip on the radar so I did not say anything.
I am finishing up my Christmas cards, so I need to get off here. I am sure a few of you will be glad to see some pics of the girls, it has been a while I have been reminded.
Have an awesome Wednesday and thanks for stopping in.
