“I pray because I can't help myself. I pray because I'm helpless. I pray because the need flows out of me all the time- waking and sleeping. It doesn't change God- it changes me.”

I believe in the sun even when it's not shining. I believe in love even when I don't feel it. And I believe in God even when He is silent. (quote found on the wall of a concentration camp)

Can You Stand Another Snake Story?
Yep, another snake eating our delicious eggs! This one was about 3 and a half feet long.
He had 2 egg lumps in him. I didn't want to kill him, so we decided to be nice and set him free at the field by our church.
Catching him was interesting. Chicken snakes can be rather aggressive. He proved himself to be all "chicken snake". I was going to rake him into our little container, but he was not about to go willingly. He snapped at me and tried to get away. I stepped on his tail to keep him from getting away and he snapped back again. It was quite exciting!
After getting him into the container, the lid wouldn't go on. That had my adrenaline going like you wouldn't believe. Mad snake in container, without lid = bitten mama.
I didn't get bitten. I got the lid on FAST!
We took him to church and let him go in the corn field. He slithered away like a good little snake. WAY COOL!!!!
Now, Erika took pictures for posterity, but somehow, I can't find the snake in her video. He was there! I promise! :)
