Is there anyone that can give me advice on ‘drying off’ my Milk Goat?

What to do with the ‘Extra’?

I’ve got an Idea…

Baby Goat Kids

Give it to the ones she Lactates it for.

Thank you…

Many thanks to those who prayed for my 93yrs old grandmother in the hospital last week.

She went home yesterday and I will be calling her tonight after work to see how she is progressing.

Also many thanks to my family, friends and brothers and sisters in Christ who have been praying with and for me the last 4yrs as I have worked towards ‘full time employee’ here at my new job.
God has been good and I have worked hard with the encouragement of my wife brandy.

Much has happened this last 4yrs since leaving my previous permanent job because of stress and family issues.
What started there as loss of my dad has in the last 4yrs led to my best friend Rocco,  my mom last year and my twin brother passing just this july.

There has been loss yet gain has also been in attendance. This whole season of change has been a mix of good and bad, disappointment and opportunity. Much like life itself, or as Forest Gump said it “a box of chocolate”, not really knowing what you will get until you bite into what has been offered.

Gratitude for just the offering means being willing to take the risk that the candy may not be what you expect but being hopeful and trusting that God, however you understand Him, has a plan and can be trusted for the ultimate good.

I want to thank God and my circumstances for bring me to where I am now, setting me on the path i continue down and for continuing to guide, provide and teach me down the road to the future.

I still believe. I still have hope. And I still trust.

I may not always understand but I am grateful and optimistic.  My best years are still ahead.

This is rather an unusual post from me. For many of my readers it may feel different. There is a good reason for that. This is not a post I prepared. It is a sound piece of advice that I had given a friend -Rose –  which kick-started a change of attitude in her and made her more positive. I love my readers and thought that if it helped him maybe it would help you guys too.

You wake up every morning in a country that has no war, no famine, and no pandemic or any kind of fear. You live in a place where the basic human rights are upheld. Education is affordable, food is affordable and many of your basic necessities are fulfilled and that goes without saying. You can even afford…

Why not apply this to animal cruelty and the meat industry?

http://bible.com/1/PRO24.10 If thou faint in the day of adversity, thy strength is small. If thou forbear to deliver them that are drawn unto death, and those that are ready to be slain; If thou sayest, Behold, we knew it not; doth not he that pondereth the heart consider it? and he that keepeth thy soul, doth not he know it? and shall not he render to every man according to his works?
