Be still before the Lord
and wait for him. Ps. 37:7 CEB
Patience has never been easy for me. At times I have infinite patience; and other times not so. Yesterday, Will took pictures of me for my book cover. The work progresses slowly as I continue photographing renderings and re-paint old drawings with new tools. For a break, I post. Then I am still before the Lord, hushing mind chatter, listening, breathing.
Those who make peace
sow the seeds of justice by their peaceful acts. James 3:18 CEB
Not only did the Great Dane Jackie pal with the baby bovine Holly, she also became friends with the Brahma Sonny. In addition to straddling the bull who was OK with her presence, she also climbed on top of him. A few years later all the critters took up residence in Tennessee.
Siddhartha, the wanderer, just showed up one day and made fast friends with Jack, the Palomino paint. Sid stayed on the Tennessee farm with the other canine rescues, two horses and three pet cattle.
Bebe improves exponentially
following farm visit by vet
Injured three months ago my sweet filly, Bebe, had reached a plateau with her recovery. There was a lip along the inside leading edge of her leg just below the hock, and skin would not cover it.
So last week I called our large animal vet, Amy, who arrived Friday and trimmed a half-inch of granulated tissue.
With instruction to clean, apply prescription strength medicine and bandage daily, Bebe made marked improvement in 24 hours.
Now three days later it is obvious she will most likely heal without residual scarring, for which I am immensely grateful.
