Exploring the big world

Exploring the big world

April 28, 2013


The little pigs now run all over. They explore, root through old hay and horse droppings, chase each other and play games of pig tag. It was only last week when the little ones were afraid of everything. They would oink and hide out of sight. If their mothers went for a short walk, they would scamper around grunting their disapproval, or perhaps were just telling mom to wait up!

They are now eating pig feed on their own, eating grass and still nursing. They are growing very well. They explore a little further each day. They are no longer afraid of the cats … or the giant beasts with the iron feet…aka the draft horses 😮

I guess these little guys are just like us. We want to see the world. We want to explore all that it contains, but it is so much better when you can do it all under the watchful eye of a parent! Sure, we act like we can’t stand to have our folks around..but in times of fear or stress, what a  wonderful place to hide ….in their arms or in their heart.

I am at that place in my life where I am the “tribal elder”. I am the one who is expected to have the answers to life’s questions. In most cases I do, but when I hit those low spots of stress or fear…my folks are gone. That is when I remember the Proverb 3:5-6  “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, Lean not on your own understanding, in all your ways submit to him and “He” will make your paths straight.”  That comfort is like no other and it is a free gift. God is great all the time 😮
