The other day, I was showing my son Zach a picture of one of our heifers. “Isn’t she beautiful?” I said.
“As beautiful as a cow can be,” he replied wryly.
I was incredulous. Cows are such lovely creatures.
A friend, Blanca, once told me that in her native Spanish language, vaca (which means cow in English) can be used derisively towards or about a woman who doesn’t meet the speaker’s idea of beauty.
I was incredulous. Cows are such lovely creatures. If someone called me vaca, I’d take it as a compliment.
Take another look at Annabelle, for instance. Isn’t she just a vision of loveliness?
“Make up for the bad times with some good times…. Let Your servants see what You’re best at— the ways You rule and bless Your children. And let the loveliness of our Lord, our God, rest on us.” –PSALM 90:16-17
