It’s Alright to be a Little-Bitty

photoIntimidated? Feeling a little like a marble rolling around in a tub of cannon balls? Yeah; me too.

TC caught this shot of a newborn posing in the midst of the Angus grown-ups, and as usual, couldn’t help but see a life-lesson worth noting.

Young calves will instinctively stay near their source of nutrtition and protection.

He will cover you with his wings; you will be safe in His care; His faithfulness will protect and defend you.

Instead of intimidation, the calf finds comfort and security in the midst of experience.

Whether conversing in a room of seasoned believers or writing amidst the adept, it’s natural to feel daunted. The calf has no such feelings. For her, the more aged and experienced are a necessary and appreciated gift. It is through the mother’s milk and her guidance that she too will one day become an accomplished member of the herd.

    What a perfect photo for a very welcome word of wisdom! As one who often feels a little overshadowed, I appreciate the thought that I can learn and grow with the help of those “bigger” than me. Thanks!

      My wonderful wife does inspire me with her ability to see God at work even in our life on the ranch. Seems He’s right visible all around us, if I’d just open my eyes. Thanks and blessings Judy! 🙂
