Top of the Day to Ya!
Oh, has the Father given us favor this week! Welcome little Sarah to our family homestead. She was born June 29th 2016 and a trooper she is. This was our female, Barucha’s and our first kidding and she (we) honestly not sure what was going on. Being a first time mama (I understand those days), it took some adjustments on us both The birth was beautiful and full of life. That is the good news.
The sad news is that my expectation of what I envisioned didn’t happen. Talk about a vortex of flashback from 4 years ago when I gave birth to my son, Zephaniah and I didn’t expect his passing. It brought back a tremendous amount of memories, most of them not good. This was a emotional time for me and although 4 years have gone by, I felt with Sarah’s birth (which was named by my youngest) and I was transferred back in time.
Baruch a didn’t take well to her Sarah. She didn’t want much to do with her even to feed her. Not sure what went wrong, and for me, that was difficult. .The eb and flow of nature just doing it thing,had to be intervened with us stepping in to feed. I have had to have a mindset change and look at the big picture here, that Sarah need food how ever she gets it. And, boy is she!
Baruch a will let her nurse, but makes it difficult with kicking and literally sitting down when it is time for feed. NOT! Well, we have to let her know that is not just not that way it goes. So we need to hold her up to get little Sarah underneath. Each day, it is getting better, kinda! Thank Abba this is only for 6-8 weeks, right?
Intervening and bringing Sarah over for her feedings and bottle feeding has been very time consuming, but spending these next few weeks with my daughter is a blessing. I am tellin ya,this little girl is sure getting plenty of attention.
The entire time, Baruch a was giving birth and upon arrival of Sarah, I just held back the tears of mixed emotions and prayed for life to come forth. And The Father was faithful to me and my family in blessing us with a beautiful baby kid. These pictures where taken by our in house photographer. And she captured Sarah beautifully in these photos.
How can you not say CUTE!!!!!!
We are very thankful and grateful The Father has given us favor with this precious new addition of life. One can learn so much with the birth of animals. Goodness, we have learned ALOT with the birth of ALL 5 of my children. It has given us hope that LIFE truly is a GIFT from The Father. We need to cherish this precious time we have on planet earth. It can be taken so quickly. So much of it is a reminder of my birth with Zephaniah. A bitter sweet moment. That will have to be a blog post later on.
Hope you enjoy what you can only see in pictures. We, get to enjoy it here at Zephy’s Homestead, the real thing!
Shalom, Mama Bell
