Back From the Woods

Jonas and the oxen are coming back from the woods, bringing some heavy oak logs.  Tomorrow, he and Father will cut the wood.  For today, the oxen’s work is done.  Jonas puts them in their stall and hangs up the yoke.





Then he brings wood into the house for tomorrow’s fire.  Cutting the trees and moving the wood has made Jonas warm—even hot!  He wipes his forehead and tells Sarah: “Wood warms you twice!”
