New babies and answered prayer
Then after we brought the flock of sheep up to the house for bed -- we noticed that one of the ewes was missing. We prayed and asked God to show us where on this 140 acres of forested land the ewe was hiding. And then we fanned out and called "Sheeeeepy". We were almost ready to give up, with the three of us walking down one of the trails on our property, not hearing a sound of sheep or seeing anything, when Sarah spotted the ewe right beside us in a group of trees, with a new lamb. We managed to lead her up the hill to the house before dark, with her new ewe lamb. She was a black sheep with a black lamb so if it had been another 5 minutes it would have been too dark to see her.
We've had 3 lambs and 4 goats born since Thursday. This is a good season. All the babies have been strong and healthy. God is good to us.
By the way, I am puzzling why people pray to the "Universe" when they could pray to "the One who created the Universe". I've heard the expression, "I asked the Universe" three or four times this week. It seems like its settling for second best, when the best is within reach.
Happy Mothers Day, my friends.
