This is our journal of what we pray is our sojourn of life (Hebrews 11:8-10) along the narrow way (Matthew 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 “Celestina”

The Lord again has granted us another calf to be born, a little heifer calf, to one our our heifers Carlita, who is out of our cow Holga (who is the mother of our new calf Rafaela). This new heifer is another chocolate brown one that looks just like our new calf Bernardo. Since she looks like chocolate, and some people think chocolate is heavenly, we thought we’d call her Celestina, which means, well, “heavenly” (I know that may sound a bit carnal (or is it, caramel?); but hey, we’re just trying to give her a name 🙂 ).

Here’s a picture:

And here’s her moving picture:

As always, we are grateful to God for His provisions of this new calf, and we pray He glorifies Himself through this act of Providence.

    Thanks for the update. How many acres have you set aside for the cows?

    Hi Todd,

    Well, I'm not exactly sure. 100 or so? Maybe a little more?

    We're getting past capacity, so we're planning on trying to sell several this year.
