3 calf morning - in love with Our Lady!

Using Ruth's beautiful pictures she took the other day today... Thank you, Ruth!
Mary is a true lover of the cows and calves... it will be so great that she can live here on the farm with her family shortly.  I thought it could be as soon as when calving slows down, but now I have heard that it could wait til school gets out for the summer.  Sigh...  All I do is take one day at a time around here in this midst of this zoo/farm/time of huge changes! 

We awoke at sunrise to see 3 calves on the way... one was here and two came shortly after.  All are healthy and doing well.  It was a nice for them to wait the night and allow us to have a full restful night of sleep.  I have been asking Our Lady to intercede for us having a quiet restful night and it seems she in answering our plea. 
Rose in the calf shelter with new calves and a smile and bright brown eyes aglow!  Mom asked her if she was a farmgirl today - "Farmgirls like to feed Hillary a bottle."  "Yes, I am a farmgirl"

Spending time with John and my TEC family last night...  The fact that John and I love Our Lady is not something that we hide or keep quiet!  John fell head over heels in love with her at Lourdes in the midst of his brain cancer battle in August of 2009.  It is the heartwarming Truth that makes John always yearn to share his story of which that is such a big part of his healing and ministry of sharing LOVE through prayer and speaking anytime and anywhere!  At this time he is speaking at TEC and sharing his story/miracles/ journey of Faith found and now the basis for his life giving work... bringing LIGHT into the world of darkness and lies of Satan to mislead and confuse.
So adorable... yes, both!  There are many family times sharing the wonder of new life which is coming fast and furious these days!  We are ever vigilant thanks to Cow TV... our continuous rotating surveillance camera. 

A whisper reminder of Our Lady in the Gospel as Jesus returns to Cana...he returned to Cana in Galilee, where he had made the water wine.   John 4  Just the thought of that beautiful first miracle of Jesus with the encouragement of his amazing humble sweet Mother of God - whatever he tells you do it.  Mary tells the servants at the wedding feast and on our journey with her Son.  I have no doubt that John is speaking from his heart filled with LOVE for his Spiritual Mother!  Today in the Gospel Jesus does his second miracle in Cana... healing the son of the royal official, who had Faith in the words... "You may go; your son will live."  He traveled days' journey to his home and when he got close the servants met him and told him that at the exact moment of these words his son was healed!  and he and his whole household came to believe.  No wonder that since John found faith and healing in the midst of brain cancer... that he burns to share his story above all else he does. 
Mary with one of the favorites that could be a show calf for the fair this summer!
Huggable when she is just a few days old and then will need to have a lot of work to be ready to show in 4H!
Out in the fresh beautiful day!
With the year of "H" there is a 4H calf... It probably will not be shown at the fair, but is a cool phenomenon Ruth had to chronicle for 2016 calving year. 
A true white face!

I am so filled with gladness to have my Spiritual Mother always with me and the love I have for her as we journey.  Through her rosary I find peace in the midst of strife and all each day holds that challenges me.
Mother and baby captured  in the corn stalk bedding is a beautiful peaceful heartwarming sight.

Jesus, I stand with your Mother at the foot of your cross filled with tremendous gratitude for the LOVE we see there beyond all telling.  May I be your hands and feet this day and serve without counting the cost!  "Wounded, I will not cease to love."  may we be like the lamb in being willing to give our all.  Jesus, we trust in you.  Amen
Rose finds a peaceful spot on the farm.  Bless-bless, Barbara Luke
Boots are a must on the farm, and dad's hand helps you get out of the sticky mud when needed!
puddles and mud are fun on the farm!
