This is David & Susan Sifford's journal of what we pray is our sojourn of life (Hebrews 11:8-10) along the narrow way (Matt 7:14), even the old paths (Jeremiah 6:16), submitting to the Bible as a light unto both (Psalms 119:105). It is our prayer that these documented moments in our earthly time benefit whom God might choose to edify, but ultimately that God glorifies Himself through them.

Providence’s Perpetuation Provisions: New Calf “Alba”

The Lord has graciously granted another calf, a little heifer, to one of our other heifers Rociada, which means this is her first calf! Rociada comes from one of our cows Rosa; and in continuing with the naming tradition of Rosa and Spanish names for our Longhorns, we decided to name this new calf after a type of old garden rose called Alba that has white and pink blossoms, which is also the Spanish name that means “dawn.”

And so, here is our new heifer Alba:

And a video:

We thank God once again for this provision of the new calf; and we pray she is productive for ourselves and others, according to God’s will.

    Hi Todd,

    As of this post about Alba, about 15 or so. But keep on the lookout for similar posts in the near future, DV.

    Wow, I had no idea you had that many. Bunker will have to come up with a new nickname for you.

    Keep this up and you will have to design a brand.

    Hi Todd,

    Actually, to register, I think we need to have a brand…at least, there's a place for it on the registry. Our current plan is to have A and B together with the right side of the A and the vertical line of the B being the same line. Not sure at what angle they'll sit. The AB would stand for Agrarianos Biblicos.

    Excellent. You and Susan can brand each other and start a hot new trend. I don't think the Bible forbids branding, off the top of my head, so you should be alright.

    Well, Lev 19:28 says, "Ye shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor print any marks upon you: I am the LORD."

    So, we probably won't be branding ourselves any time soon. 🙂
