Philippians 2:14 says “do everything without grumbling or complaining.”

Well I’m having a very difficult time feeding these pigs everyday without grumbling. This is way too hands on and up close for this citykid. It’s not that I’m afraid of the pigs, but that they are just so big and clumsy and dirty. I gotta plan my approach, think fast, and watch my back cause one quick turn and they can knock me off balance. And there is no getting out of that pen without my paint legs covered in mud and dirt. I leave dirty, smelly, and grumpy. And well, you can read for yourself the complaining part.

So that’s what the good Lord has seen fit to teach me this week by feeding the pigs. How to work with a happy and thankful heart. It seems I need quite a lot of practice.
