Five Things

At chore time, five exuberant goat kids are at large, clambering upon toolboxes, mowers, and tables in the shop; knocking over tools, boxes, and garbage cans; racing each other hither and yon. They put me in mind of The Cat in the Hat’s Thing One and Thing Two--only in this case, there are five Things wreaking havoc!

“Why do you let them loose then?” I can hear someone ask.

“Because it’s so fun to watch them having so much fun!” I reply.

Thing Five (Moey) "helping" with chores

“But let the righteous be joyful; let them exult before God; let them be jubilant with joy.” –PSALM 68:3 (NRSV)
