Richard got the last two cows penned last night. He has carefully attended to them since his dad passed away in January, but he didn’t want to be responsible for them anymore. There is some good news in this; a local couple that raises Angus and Brangus cattle in our area has agreed to rotate their cattle into our pastures. I must admit I’m a bit sad to see them go; I guess I’ve lost my hard, country girl shell and become soft in my older age. However, I’m looking forward to seeing all black cows every day; besides, these cows have all been lovingly raised and are calm and gentle. Hopefully, they will let me pet them, which is also not something I’ve ever wanted to do. I will blame my character change on Jesus; he has made me a softy for all living creatures. Here’s the lesson: if you do not see a difference within yourself because of Jesus, you may need to assess what you may be doing to undo the work God is trying to accomplish in your life. There might be something you need to tweak or a sin that needs to be cleaned up.
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. 2 Corinthians 5:17
