Prayer Quote

“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.”
― C. S. Lewis


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)

 Miss Alli is one brave girl giving that snake a dirty look for killing her baby chick!
So, we were VERY curious about WHICH chicken he ate.  I figured what went in, must be able to come out.  It was very interesting squeezing the little fellow out.  I could feel the snakes muscles and bones retract and compress.   Glad I wasn't that poor chicken!  Glad I wasn't the snake either. :)

Here is some interesting video of our morning event! :)  The first video we get the baby chick out.

The second video gives a good lesson on not touching a snake after it is dead because it can still bite and move.

This is all a bit too graphic for me.

So sorry Nellie. I put a warning at the top, just in case. :)

Wow! I can't wait to show my boys this in the morning. They will get a kick out of this.

I will have to start calling your blog, "Science with Ms. Christie!" LOL! The boys thought it was interesting, the girl said, "That was just nasty!"

Oh yuck! LOL! I am SO very glad we do not have snakes over here! I think I would have a heart attack if one of those came near my house! :O

Thanks for the graphic warning - I think I will skip the videos, since I don't want to have snake-related nightmares tonight! Haha!

You Are Still Holy
