If making plans and having them go exactly the way I wanted them was a reality I'd live a comfortable but boring life. God said it best in Proverbs 16:9: "The mind of man plans his way, But the Lord directs his steps."
I like making plans but I love seeing God work them out in His time and way. We had planned on building a new barn when we first moved to ASR but our plans did not work out that way and I'm glad. If I had gotten what I thought I wanted at first I don't believe it would be as good as it is now.
It took us almost two years to get a new barn and in that period of time we learned a lot. If we didn't; have time to live and learn what ranch life was like we would have built a barn not half as useful as the one God planned. His timing gave us time to grow, think and experience things we had no clue about. I am pleased to know we love and belong to a Father who always has exactly what is right in mind for us and directs ours steps.
It is rewarding enough to own these wonderful fluffy creatures but to have one of your photos posted in the ISBONA news letter makes it all the more exciting. To see one of our sweet little ram lambs in print among all the other wonderful Icelandics born this year is an honor. Looking at that photos makes me sad, they grow so fast I feel like lambing season just zipped past me. I am already dreaming of next years lambs.
