Great Wait

It’s the most exciting time of the year: the Great Wait.

“Great” refers to the size of the expectant cows as well as the anticipation of soon-coming calves. As for “wait”: we clean and straw the barn—and wait. We sort the heavy cows close to the barn—and wait. Every night, we trek out into the shivery-cold darkness three different times to check the cows—and wait. Every day, we discuss our visual assessments, trying to predict who will calve first—and wait.

Night check: nothing happening

“Be strong, and let your heart take courage,
    all you who wait for the Lord!”
–PSALM 31:24 (ESV)
