Frozen Stiff

13 Mar

March came in like a lion and it’s been a real bear. Am I mixing my metaphors?

We are grateful for all God’s blessings and provision no matter the circumstances; and events worldwide put our problems in perspective.

Still, there’s no doubt that the 6” of snow topped with 5” more of snow and subzero temps were troublesome to feeding cattle and calving. We got through subzero temps a couple weeks ago as well, followed by a GORGEOUS week, so we were grateful for that! But, during the frigid weather, diesel engines freeze up, waterers freeze up, and baby calves freeze to death. We do our best to prepare ahead of time and to be there in time to get a newborn calf into shelter if needed, but sometimes we areas not successful.

Ultimately, we just have to rely on God’s strength and provision. We do everything in our power and control; knowing that God is really in control and loves us.

And, like my Mom always says, “It all works out in the end. If it’s not working out, it’s not the end.”

And soon enough, the wind started blowing and the snow and ice started melting. And now there’s mud to contend with. So we will slop through, put out straw in the corrals and be thankful for the moisture because there are dry years we would ache for mud.


Matthew 6:33

Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.
