Every time you feel in God's creatures something pleasing and attractive, do not let your attention be arrested by them alone, but, passing them by, transfer your thought to God and say: "O my God, if Thy creations are so full of beauty, delight and joy, how infinitely more full of beauty, delight and joy art Thou Thyself, Creator of all!
- Nicodemus of the Holy Mountain

You can’t get to joy by making everything perfect. You can only get there by seeing in every imperfection all that’s joy.

Lily Pics

Here are the pics of sweet little Lily. She's just a dear! Can't you tell just by looking at these? :)
So far the other girls aren't taking to her well. I think things are better when no people are around, but when we're there they really keep her away. Pansy tries to bite her ears. They both chase and butt her. I keep praying they settle down soon. I really don't know how long it should take, but I'd hoped they'd already have it worked out. It's making for a lot of waste hay since I want to make sure Lily gets enough. I try to put it in a few different places.
Well, it's off to bed for me. I. Am. So. Tired......Goodnight all. :)


  1. She is adorable. What a sweet addition.

  2. Maybe they don't like her because she's so cute!!

  3. your new addition to the family is a little snowball

  4. Love that last picture. It just screams sweetheart!

  5. How sweet! I bet they will all be the best of friends soon!

  6. They'll get over it...until feeding time! I have a small herd that gets along pretty well, but when that grain bucket comes out, everybody butts everybody, friendship be damned!

  7. Thanks, Ladies! CR- Thanks for the reassurance. I think we're getting closer to that point. :)
