I feel exhausted and ready to fall asleep right now! My running muscles must have gotten lazy over the winter months and they're for sure not used to running through heavy snow and jumping over snowbanks in pursuit of cows who are going astray! :)
These are some of the mamas and babies that were in the barn this morning. We had 3 new calves born today and I praise God that they're all alive!!!
One of the cows that calved today is very aggressive and was ready to knock people over if they came too close to her calf--or other's calves, for that matter. I praise God for safety and that WE are all alive!!! (That cow will likely be on a trailer headed for the salesbarn this fall, if not sooner.)
Our herd was turning white!! Thankfully, the snow let up a bit now, but the wind is still howling something fierce. Continued prayers would be so wonderful!
He found this lovely picture hiding in a closet...
As I'm writing, this song is playing in the background and I thought these words would make the perfect ending to this post! :)
"May the Lord protect and defend you,
May the Lord preserve you from pain,
Favor them, oh Lord, with happiness and peace..."
Oh hear my prayer----Amen.
