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 Kids “Stanley” and “Ollie”

About three weeks ago, the Lord granted another set of goat kids, this time to our full Nubian goat Betsy. She gave birth to two little bucklings, which are also full Nubian; and we decided to call them Stanley and Ollie.

Here they are shortly after being born:

And here they are now (Ollie on the left in the first picture; Stanley on the right; vice-versa in the second picture):

And here’s their moving picture:

We are again very grateful to the Lord for granting these provisions; and we again pray for guidance in raising them and continued provisions for the herd.
