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 “Clara”

And again, the Lord in His graces and mercies granted another calf, this one to our cow Casi Blanca (whose dam is Amistosa); and she too is a little heifer calf. She has a little brown island on her forehead, so we decided to call her Clara, named after Montaña Clara, meaning “light-colored mountain,” which is an islet in the northeastern part of the Spanish Canary Islands.

Here is her picture:

And her video:

We are continuously grateful for the safe and healthy deliveries of the new calves. And we pray for God’s continued guidance in our lives as we work to separate from the world unto Him and His prescribed way of living — the way of life He invented.

Providence’s Perpetuation Provisions: New Calf “Amilita”

Once again, the Lord has graciously granted another calf, this one to our cow Amistosa. She’s a little heifer calf, and we decided to call her Amilita (little Ami).

Here’s a picture:

And a quick video:

We are always grateful to God for His continued providence in perpetuating our animals; and now we pray for His wisdom, help and guidance in their disposition during this difficult time of drought.

Providence’s Perpetuation Provisions: New Calf “Cora”

The Lord graciously recently granted another calf to be born to Holga, our Longhorn cow. She’s a little heifer calf, and has a heart-shaped patch on her forehead. With the Spanish word for “heart” being “corazón”, we decided to call her Cora.

Here she is with her mother Holga:

We’re grateful once again to God providing this offspring. Given the drought here at this time, we’re having to sell much of our cattle; and so we pray for wisdom in selling them, and for buyers perhaps, or wisdom to know if we should handle them in a different direction.
