It is hard to believe today is December 22nd. It may be due in part to the fact that it is 70 degrees in Goldsboro today. But I think it has more to do with how I am celebrating this holiday season. I am not doing the usual Christmas shopping extravaganza, hanging lights, singing carols, or visiting family. Rather, I am here on the farm helping look after the dozens of new born calves at the dairy. Although I am spending this Christmas away from the shopping mall, the carols, and the Christmas trees, the spirit of Christmas feels more alive in me than it ever has. I have had the pleasure of witnessing the miracle of life almost everyday. And after all, a celebration of birth is to many the reason for the season. There is nothing more beautiful, miraculous, or spiritual than seeing a mother cow give birth to a healthy calf.
Witness the beauty yourself…
Happy Day! Happy Life! Happy New Year!
