Farmer just left about an hour ago and asked if I would accept two gentle, treated very well Angus / Hereford cross feeder steers to be delivered tomorrow afternoon. They have had all their shots and been given a stamp of approval by a licensed veterinarian. This is really good news, but I'm still not counting them until their hooves are on the pasture.
Honestly... I've only prayed once about these steers and have been waiting patiently. Putting two and two together... It's kind of a no brainier. Why would Almighty see to it that I freely obtained enough hay to feed 2 cows through the winter and not provide cows to feed the hay to? This simply makes no logical sense. And besides it's is not the Almighty I know and Love.
I knew I did the right thing by politely refusing to purchase from the first gentleman. Hard telling what I may have ended up with, like a pair of crazy steers, treated badly, no shots, etc... A guy (me) has to stand for his beliefs and do what he knows is right in his heart. Then have faith, and patiently wait for Almighty to provide. Almighty knows better than I do which cows I should care for.
For (me) when I boil it all down, life just really doesn't get any simpler than. Mark 12:28-34, Mathew 22:34-40, Luke 10:25-28. I mean red letters and upper case even, I need no further hints... I try my imperfect best to follow these wise words and that all I'll say, I need not say anything more.
