It has been raining off and on in south Louisiana for a month now. This is normal for our winters; dreary, wet, and muddy. I’m sharing a few pictures of my animals that actually enjoy the rainy weather…
Faith – Today in my Bible reading Genesis chapters 6-9. There is so much information in this passage. It goes so quickly. I find it gives me pause to read these things in chapter 6: “Now the earth was corrupt in God’s sight and was full of violence.” Then God tells Noah, “I am going to bring floodwaters on the earth to destroy all life under the heavens, every creature that has the breath of life in it. Everything on earth will perish.”
This is so poignant. Our actions have consequences. Innocent life around us is affected. Due to mankind’s violence, every creature on the earth suffered the consequences. We have an obligation to realize that our choices affect so much more than ourselves. We affect everyone and everything around us with our decisions. We have a much greater influence than we realize.
This day was super full of things to do. The cow had to be milked, we had 3 roping calves break through the fence and get out into the woods behind the house, I took my truck for an oil change, I packed away all of the Christmas decorations that need to be put in the attic, we had the normal barn chores in the mud, and we (Landry and I) attended the LSU vs. Arizona gymnastics meet (LSU pulled out a slim victory).
The gym meet covered family, friends, fun, and fitness. LSU is a very large campus, and we parked far away. We saw Mike the Tiger, walked up and down the ramps to the Assembly Center, and made a few flights of stairs once inside. We met my sister-in-law (friend) and my nieces and spent time visiting as we watched the meet. We sang the LSU alma mater after the game together, along with the band and the gymnasts.
I’m writing this blog at midnight, and will add my photos and publish it first thing in the morning.
How is your New Year going?
