A Rising Star

So far, two-year old Flame is the top contender for 2013 Cow of the Year. It was nice that Flame had her calf, Liza, without assistance in the pasture. She’s done a great job of raising Liza too. But the extraordinary thing about Flame is that she has mercifully adopted a steer calf, Cisco. Cisco’s mama, Clarabelle, is pretty much a flop when it comes to mothering, but Flame has graciously taken up the slack. A heifer usually doesn’t have enough milk for two calves, but Flame is kindly nursing them both and is none the worse for wear.

“Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.” –HEBREWS 4:16 (NIV)
