Providence's Perpetuation Provisions: New Kids "Desi" and "Lucy"

Our goat Minnie (see Minnie in the middle of this blog post when she was first born) didn't get pregnant when she was with our buck Eastwood during the Winter (Eastwood died during that time). And so, we borrowed a buck from our neighbor Chris, a Spanish billy (see him at the top of this blog post); and lo and behold, new kids!

Please meet Desi and Lucy (we named them that because Desi Arnaz was kind of Spanish-ish :) ):

Here they are just shortly after birth:

We are grateful to the Lord for the increase of the herd.

Wow your blog is really neat, you guys seem to have a lot in common with myself. We are planning to start a homestead this coming spring and I stumbled onto your page checking out pictures of your foundation. It is such a blessing to see the new animals and how God provides.

Hi Bob,

Thanks for saying hello. God is most gracious and merciful.

May the Lord guide you in truth and understanding of His Word.

I came across a quote today by John Owens in his book, "Sin & Temptation" (pg 118) and I thought of you guys.

"We need to regard the comfort, joy, and peace of our spirits, and to realize that we sojourn here for the honor of the gospel and the glory of God."

Great addition to the herd. Have a blessed Sabbath.

Amen, Kris.

I'm reading that volume of Owen's works as well.

Thanks for saying hi, and Shabbat Shalom to you too.
