Today, is not a particularly sunny day, but it is warm enough to go outside with just a sweater or light jacket.
The joys of working outside the city are manifold. There is peace, quiet, trees, birds and yes, even goats.
After the record snowfall, we received just a few short weeks ago, it was almost surprising to see the rich green of the plants and trees. Many, many trees and bushes were crushed and broken, but already they are beginning to regenerate and show signs of being even stronger than before. It is difficult to picture everything buried in snow!
Looking out the window of the office I saw a movement at the end of the property.
Upon closer investigation, it turned out to be a herd of goats, chewing their way along. There is a path that runs along the valley and it is not uncommon for herds of goats to slowly travel through. They seem to know exactly where they are going, even when the herder is nowhere to be seen.
A hawk circled lazily overhead, there were various birds singing and flitting from tree to tree~and of course~the goats!
In short, it is just a normal day, but one that reminds us of the Greatness of God and His Amazing Creation…
