Not Forsaken

When I saw Peewee napping in some friends' corral the other day, I had to get his picture because he must be one of the smallest calves I’ve ever seen. A few days previous, he was found wandering alone, apparently motherless. Due to his size and the fact that no cows were missing, it’s thought that Peewee could be the smaller of twins and therefore rejected.

Peewee was being bottle fed until last Thursday, when a heifer lost her calf. The dead calf was skinned so that its hide could be tied onto Peewee in hopes that he would smell enough like her own calf that the heifer would adopt him. She did! The grafting was successful, and now Peewee has a mama.

“And those who know Your name will put their trust in You,
for You, O Lord, have not forsaken those who seek You.”
–PSALM 9:10
