Last night was almost sleepless for me, my body ached and the pain meds would not help. I again began to feel sorry for me. When I can not sleep, things seem to be worse for me. I slowly sink into a self pity that requires me to read the Bible and stop and count all my blessings.
The birth of new babies, baby lambs and calves, seeds growing and the new beginnings of Spring brings new hope and renews my spirit.
Nature is the perfect example of renewal. But did you know the Creator renews people, too? The Bible tells us that God sees within each of us vast potentials for new energy and accomplishments. God sees within you valuable and new potentials. “Just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life” (Romans 6:4). Aren't you happy that whenever you face a problem, you can bring it to Jesus. He will not only answer your prayer, but also bring out new resources within you!
God has blessed me with a wonderful husband and best friend, three wonderful children that are all married to persons that I would have chosen for them to share their lives and be my sons and daughter by marriage. God also blessed my life with wonderful grandchildren. All beautiful and so smart and such a joy for me! They have lefted so many happy spots in my heart. I am so blesed!
|After a med induced sleep most of the day, I was determined that I needed to go where I feel so close to God. I grab my camera and head outside in the sunshine. Lizzy has one of her twins with her as she grazes the green grass.|
Isn't this baby precious? So innocent walking way out behind his mother.
I watched this ewe graze and her babies kept calling to her but she kept her head down and eating away until she was ready to go to them and let them suck. She knew that she had to eat in order to feed them. This ewe was a beautiful lamb, in fact her name was Pretty Girl but as you can see the life of a mother has changed her looks...shoooooooooooooo, I don't want her to know!
|Isn't this baby beautiful?|
