Burning Up The Yard?

                    What is going on here?        
                              
              

                                   Anne Marie is in our front yard with a magnifying glass.

Her dad has just this minute taught her how to set things on fire with a magnifying glass and the sun. Can you see the smoke coming from the wood?


                     Quick as a wink, she had burned about five holes into this wood chip.

Back in the house, she is showing her little sister what a magnifying glass is. What a good big sister!

“I saw something like a sea made of glass, the glass all shot through with fire.

Last Night









“I saw another powerful Angel coming down out of Heaven wrapped in a cloud. There was a rainbow over his head, his face was sun-radiant, his legs pillars of fire.”

The Shearing

Well, you were all RIGHT! We went to a sheep shearing! The day started out beautiful, and quite a few people were there.


The couple went into the pen and grabbed a sheep. You can see one has already been shorn, the other not.

The sheep was big and strong, and it fought like mad. The poor couple had a time of it. You can see that the man's hat even fell off.


While the woman held the sheep, the man sharpened the scissors. Yes, SCISSORS! They had to do it the old fashioned way. 





It takes about an hour to shear a sheep this way. I wanted to ask the man what kind of pain killer he takes when he gets home. He did most of it bending over. The sheep feel much better in warm weather with all the pounds of wool off their body. The pots over the fire were to boil the wool. They passed the wool around and it was sticky because it had lanolin in it. And no, nobody pulled the wool over my eyes.

“As a sheep led to slaughter, and quiet as a lamb being sheared, He was silent, saying nothing. He was mocked and put down, never got a fair trial. But who now can count his kin since he’s been taken from the earth?”

Friday






On Friday we took a short trip and did something we had never done before. Can you guess what it was by looking at these pictures?
