To every thing there is a season

Ecclesiastes 3:1-8

1To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
2A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
3A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;
4A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
5A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
6A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
7A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
8A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.

Around the farm, this is the season to be born.  It is also a season of laughter and dancing (playing) for our children!  
There's no better way to describe the new life on the farm, than to show you in pictures what the Lord has blessed us with recently!

                           First, there were baby chicks, and we still have them hatching!               

                                      Then a surprise calf one afternoon!  :)

Then, this last weekend, the goats kidded!

Our Lamancha doe had twins - Jenny (black) and Johnny (white)

Then LATE Saturday night, Lilly, one of our Nubians kidded - TRIPLETS

Jimmy says we never take pictures of him - so here are his feet  :P

Lilly had 1 buckling and 2 doelings.

Also, new on the farm, but not born here, are some ducklings.  We are hoping at least one of them is a male, so that next year we can hatch some duck eggs.

                        May as well show some pictures of how much the other cows are growing!

                                    (This is my all-time favorite picture, that I have taken!)

Maybelle, the Jersey, and Florida, the Long Horn Bull, always hanging out together!

Hope you enjoyed your visit to the Edwards' Farm!
