A day in the life at Grieb Ranch. We were out gathering cattle at Grieb Ranch, recent rain stimulated the grass to emerge; giving a hint of green, the morning was clear and we could see to the ocean. The cattle were making their way back to our main area . . . we turned to see that it was just another beautiful day on Grieb Ranch. We were thankful.
Yes the recent storm dumped enough water to allow Connie to skip watering for a week. However the hay stacks got wet, and the moisture caused the grass seeds to germinate but without regular watering the grass will die and not re-germinate. Yet we are thankful. Even when the rain actually can leach out the nutrients in the grass which then provides less feed value to the cows, we are still thankful.
1I lift up my eyes to the mountains—
where does my help come from?
2My help comes from the Lord,
the Maker of heaven and earth.
3He will not let your foot slip—
he who watches over you will not slumber;
4indeed, he who watches over Israel
will neither slumber nor sleep.
5The Lord watches over you—
the Lord is your shade at your right hand;
6the sun will not harm you by day,
nor the moon by night.
7The Lord will keep you from all harm—
he will watch over your life;
8the Lord will watch over your coming and going
both now and forevermore.
