We get free manure...
all the cows, including ours, around the forests and fields where we live...
drop all those preciously nutritious "feed" for our crops on the farm
all we have to do is take a walk for cow pies
down the hill, my husband carries his bucket and shovel
I must say, it's a pretty nice walk, too
birds' nests, here and there
I look at all the pretty things...
and my husband does the dirty thing of shoveling up those "pies"
the scenery is not bad
even the part surrounding those muddy discs
while the morning sun slips it's rays through the trees
I do believe our crops will get some good food
and, in spite of it's non-yummy looks...
good for us in the long run, when we go to eat our crops
yep, I'd say those cows are certainly worth their weight in gold...
or rather, manure
and, how about a last photo to "clean the palate"
He (Jesus) spake also this parable;
A certain man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard;
and he came and sought fruit thereon, and found none.
Then said he unto the dresser of his vineyard,
Behold, these three years I come seeking fruit on this fig tree,
and find none:
cut it down; why cumbereth it the ground?
And he answering said unto him,
Lord, let it alone this year also,
till I shall dig about it, and dung it:
And if it bear fruit, well:
and if not, then after that thou shalt cut it down.
this is spiritually speaking, of course
Jesus spoke this parable as a warning that,
except ye repent, ye shall likewise perish
food for the soul to those who hear
May your day, or night be blessed in God's grace and mercy.
