Nesting on her bed of straw, our courageous little Peg sits on her clutch of eggs.
Last summer, Peg was in the wrong place at the wrong time. She adventured out into the hay field just as the haybine sickle was cutting hay. She lost her foot in the tangle, but has lived to survive and thrive. She gets along hopping on her one foot and stub, leading a normal chicken’s life. Her circumstances have not been a factor in her contentment.
Peg’s example reminds me of this verse from the Holy Bible, “But godliness actually is a means of great gain when accompanied by contentment.” I Timothy 6:6.
