Lambs......two More Weeks

09 January 2015 - 12:41 PM

This is our winter/spring forage for the sheep. Clockwise: ryegrass mixed with arrowleaf clover and turnips in the foreground, wheat mixed with Austrian winter peas to the left (light green). oats in the far distance(dark green), and newly planted ryegrass to the right (light tannish) The sheep are eating the oats now, which are a fall and early to mid winter crop. The wheat and Austrian Winter Peas will be grazed about late winter and the ryegrass will be ready for early to mid Spring. The sheep have big bellies and are due to begin lambing in two weeks. Can't wait to see the new babies! :)

This World Is Not My Home.....

Looks like the Jihadist Islamofascists, the totalitarian liberals, environmentalists, and sodomites have about taken this place over: is there somewhere else I can move until the Lord comes back?

Thou Shalt Not Grow A Beard.......

07 January 2015 - 01:40 PM

Lev 21:5
ΒΆ
They shall not make baldness upon their head, neither shall they shave off the corner of their beard, nor make any cuttings in their flesh.

 

Psa 133:1-3
Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!

It is like the precious ointment upon the head, that ran down upon the beard, even Aaron's beard: that went down to the skirts of his garments;

As the dew of Hermon, and as the dew that descended upon the mountains of Zion: for there the LORD commanded the blessing, even life for evermore.

 

1Ch 19:5
Then there went certain, and told David how the men were served. And he sent to meet them: for the men were greatly ashamed. And the king said, Tarry at Jericho until your beards be grown, and then return.

 

So, my 'sweet' mother inllaw, guest in my home, is sitting at my table and blurts out "I don't like Wayne's Beard" Well. I was already aware of that since the last two times she told me. 

 The only command I can find in the Word of God concerning "beards" is that God Himself forbid the priests to "shave off the corners" of theirs. Then there is Psalm 133 with it's Holy and beautiful words comparing "unity" of "brethren" to the precious ointment running down Aaron's beard,, and then in I Chronicles we find the account of some manly Jewish men being ashamed because their beards were cut off. So why does my IFB mother in law chide me for having a goatee? And why have I heard  IFB preachers stand up and say things like "BLESS GOD, I think you need to shave the hair off here, here. and here, glory to God, that won't const youi a thing" (pointing to his lower jaw). Tell me, someone: since God made facial hair on men, not women (well most anyway :) ) and since Jesus had a beard too (Isaiah 50:6) why the fuss? For those who don't want a beard, shave it off, but how can you judge some else's spirituality for having something that God designed in the first place? And remember, those clean-shaven busts and statues from around the first century, were of  the ungodly .https://www.google.c...ved=0CAYQ_AUoAQ I would tell all this (again) to my mother in law, but, you know.......      I'm glad the holidays are over.  :clapping:
