Of Babies and Baby Cows

A recent piece I wrote, published by The Christian Post

One of my childhood babysitters was the daughter of a dairy farmer. I have fond memories of visiting her parents’ farm and learning how to milk cows. I don’t think there is a much cuter baby in this world than a baby cow, gazing vulnerably out at the world through its oversized eyes and long eyelashes. And that’s why I was so saddened by headlines like these yesterday...Read more.

  1. Nanette, the only reason there are more than a few people standing up for animal rights is to cover the evil in their hearts. I think that none of these evil, hard-hearted people are aware of what the Bible says about the creatures turning against humans.
    My Little Brother and I were born and raised on a farm, and from what we saw, few people really know much, if anything about animals.
    As for Our Children, few people care anything for Our Children, and the majority or every person around looks upon any Child with evil intent.
    Keep up the great work,
    Sincerely,
    Robert

    1. Hello Robert. I appreciate you sharing your comments. I do respectfully disagree about people knowingly trying to cover their evil hearts behind animal rights. I think it is good and often just to advocate for the defenseless including animals. But I think many have bought a lie that unborn life is somehow less valuable than even animals and that in the name of one life, the mother’s, it is okay for another to be sacrificed…the child’s. Seniority on earth does not define a person’s value.

      That said I heartily agree that lack of knowledge of God and his Word fosters and furthers their deceit. Thanks again for reading and sharing!

      1. Nannette, at this moment it slips my mind as to exactly where eyou andd your Dear Family are from, although I remember the post I believe we met on, and that was about the young man in our military service attempting to date a very young sister, Correct????
        I believe we many times forget that we all live in many different palces around this big world, and while there is no need to go into any big discussions, I don’t mind saying that us being half native, and brought up on a farm and being called animal whisperers, we have been asked many times for advice on how we ride without bridles or halter, and due to the location or country the request comes from we would not answer.
        However, as for over here in America, we have seen a growing number of animal mistreatment in the past 10 or so years.
        I hope all your Family is doing well, and Thank You for your input!
        Sincerely,
        Robert

      2. Robert I don’t doubt that there are plenty of things people experienced with livestock know and do that those without knowledge might take exception to based solely on ignorance of the realities the work requires.

        And no, your recollection is off about our blog introduction. I grew up in Pennsylvania, but nonrural.
