She's Got It

Spring isn’t officially here. The thermometer read only 11° this morning when I went out to do chores. But spring abounds. The robins and sparrows are chirping, baby calves are romping (even Trooper was running and bucking this morning!), geese are pairing, and the bald eagles are building a huge nest in a neighbor’s cottonwood.

When I was checking the very pregnant heifers this morning, little Dazzle scampered up Mt. Odoriferous (the barnyard “compost” pile) and posed with her doting mama, Cupcake. Even though the pre-sunrise light did nothing for my extremely limited photography skills, it’s still easy to see how Dazzle earned her name. I wonder if it's too soon to get her an agent....

“…He breathes on winter—suddenly it’s spring!” –PSALM 147:18 (MSG)
