Grandpa and I fed ahead yesterday, thank God he’s healing well from his first knee surgery… Andrew, being an excellent farm manager, helps us devise plans for each storm (he watches different weather forecasts.)  Today we’ve been digging out from yesterday’s blizzard, we’re due for another blizzard this afternoon until late tonight or tomorrow afternoon.  On the bright side, this should fill the empty stockdams.  Gotta be positive!

Simon (in the foreground) bedding his sheep 🐑… Likely the best cared for sheep in the tri-State area. During storms he beds his sheep with straw every day. Andrew blowing snow to reopen trails.
Likely many of you have received your overdue card from us…we just couldn’t let our 15 year streak go…🤓! It was a walk down memory lane for me looking back on the 15 pictures…what does God have planned for us in the next 15 years? God’s Will be done!🙏

Quote of the Day”When an evil thought is presented to the mind, we must immediately endeavor to turn our thoughts to God, or to something which is indifferent. But the first rule is, instantly to invoke the names of Jesus and Mary and to continue to invoke them until the temptation ceases. He who trusts in himself is lost. He who trusts in God can do all things.”–St. Alphonsus Liguori

Today’s Meditation:“Temptation to a certain sin, to any sin whatsoever, might last throughout our whole life, yet it can never make us displeasing to God’s Majesty provided we do not take pleasure in it and give consent to it. You must have great courage in the midst of temptation. Never think yourself overcome as long as they are displeasing to you, keeping clearly in mind the difference between feeling temptation and consenting to it.”—St. Francis de Sales, p.158
