On the farm we had a good share of animals die, from day old chicks to baby goats. Each and everyone is hard. You always second guess yourself. What could have I done? Could I have saved them? The bible reveals to us that Our Lord knows when a sparrow falls to the ground. For us, we mourn each and every life on the farm . All of them are precious, all of them are loved and tended for, but all are here for a reason. I mourn as much for a day old chick as a baby goat that dies, all are special. This is farm life you see life and death up close. You feel the sorrows and the joys of life.
In the end, when the day is done, I reflect on the grandeur of the Lord's creation and also so long as all creation does for the time when death has lost its sting!
