Just a Little One

This has been an unusual spring in these parts. Fairly cool, really wet, with mud season lasting weeks longer than normal. Today was a challenge fixing a fence crossing a swollen creek. Normally we don’t have a problem like that this late in spring but this type of year happens every once in a while. But I’m not complaining because I know that the opposite is allot more miserable, drought, even the word sends shivers up my spine. When a person is almost living like a swamp rat there are certain benifits, such as grass that’s durn near belly deep, hay crops that are unbelievable, and of course, no shortage of water. One last problem though is to try and get the remaining majority out of the calving lot, which is seven acres and out to four separate summer pastures. Never had this problem before where the mud towards the main gate is so deep we can’t get the calves through safely. Well, we’ll come up with some cowboy logic in the next few days!

 “I tell you the truth, those who listen to my message and believe in God who sent me have eternal life. They will never be condemned for their sins, but they have already passed from death into life.” John 5:24

Yep, a fella keeps on pluggin out here in cow country. Sometimes too wet, sometimes drought. Just when a person figures its all coming together nicely something will change and a person goes into emergency mode. But as long as a fella is in this world that’s the way it’ll be. But through it all when a fella has faith in Jesus everything else is of much less importance. Cause I know that in the end, which is really the beginning of something we can’t even imagine, things are gonna turn out alright! When we sign up with Jesus there ain’t no looking back. We’re finally with the right outfit! And that settles my nerves to no end!
