For our ongoing tally of calving this year. We had 8 calves yesterday, and now 2 first thing this morning. We are nearing our halfway point with 68 on the ground!
I will not speak too much about the pivotal point where we learned deep and powerfully that we have no control was the battle for John's life against brain cancer 6 years ago. http://familysoulstory.blogspot.com/p/johns-cancer-stories.html Here lies the story in it's semi-entirety if you are interested. Hallel reminded us that Father's day Sunday - The Gospel was Jesus calming the storm - Mark 4:35-40. "Mom, this is the storm and Jesus is in control." Giving it all over to him over and over... we realized that we were helpless on our own and surrounded by an army of prayer warriors we sought the will of God and discovered that it was that John would find Faith and the new John would burn to share his story with all that will listen to him!
Love this... one thing we do know is that we are called to be small/humble and die to self.
He writes much better than I - The Truth which sets us free!

No, we do not deserve mercy, yet we are given it no matter what sins we commit! May we return that mercy in our domestic Church/family. May PEACE reign!
