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.
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.
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:
And a little closer:
And here’s her video:

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.
Heb. 11:8-10 - "By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went. By faith he sojourned in the land of promise, as in a strange country, dwelling in tabernacles with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise: For he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God."
