We’ve been riding a ranching roller coaster. This experience often brings us to the place where we just want to be held. We love having our hills green by Thanksgiving, but that didn’t happen. The hills were not green by Christmas either. So, we waited, trusting. However, the hills were still not green by Valentine’s day so all our cows and babies were shipped to San Joaquin to a feed lot. That decision was made after feeding out three barn loads of hay. Papa with his tractor would load our RTV Kubota’s with hay and off we would go, up into the hills to hand-deliver feed.
While the cows and babies were away, hail hit our hills.
The natural feed and the hills have simply not recovered.
Just Be Held
Many other crazy events have happened in our lives so we are trusting in God to see how He puts the Grieb Ranch back together. As the words from Casting Crowns’ song Just Be Held explains, “Your world’s not falling apart, it’s falling into place.”
