2 tbsp. vegetable oil

Press into bottom and sides of a 14"x2" round deep dish, lightly oiled pizza pan and bake in preheated 425 degree oven about 10 minutes.

What The Other Chick Has~

I went out to the chicken coop to find a knock down~ drag out fight between these two girls. This is Layla and Ruby my cast of characters in today's post. We have four nesting boxes in our coop. This morning both girls wanted to lay their eggs in the same nesting box at the same time. There was no reasoning with either one of them. They were squawking and pecking at each other. The worst part was both of them trying to fit their rather plump little beings in the same box while trying to make a whole in the straw to lay their egg. It was a sight to see. Neither one would leave so I left them both fighting with one another and I came back later to find they indeed did squeeze in there together to lay their eggs. If I were a chicken I would have rather had my very own spacious nesting box where I could relax~right next door.

You know the funny thing is we can be just like those greedy chickens wanting what another has. I once had a friend who was so upset with me for moving into a bigger house she would not speak to me for a year. I didn't even know what I had done.

Let's not be like Layla and Ruby. We need to rejoice and be happy for those who are getting blessed. We need to be happy and thankful for the man we share our life with, with the provision he provides, with the children God has given us and with the home in which we have been blessed to share with those we love. Let's rejoice with those who rejoice~weep with those who weep ~and for Heaven's sake let's not covet what the other chick has!

Proverbs 14:30 (King James Version)

30A sound heart is the life of the flesh: but envy the rottenness of the bones.

Proverbs 27:4 (King James Version)

4Wrath is cruel, and anger is outrageous; but who is able to stand before envy?
