Hildegard is teaching me to practice patience. One time someone told me I had a lot of patience. I told that person that I believe that patience is not something you have but rather something you learn to practice. I am trying but I am tired of waiting and watching and being on guard.
A couple of weeks ago, the sermon at church was on faith. I wonder if faith is also something that humans don't possess so need to be continually practicing. I consider myself a patient and faithful woman but if I HAD patience and faith I would not feel the way I do now.
Maybe it is just me. Maybe others HAVE patience and faith. Oh I have faith that everything will work out the way it is suppose to but that doesn't allow me to just go about my day and forget about the sheep. Why? The word that comes into my head is "responsibility". Where does responsibility end and faith begin?
On a lighter note-- I took Zora's splint off yesterday. It is hard to catch the lambs now if they don't want to be caught so you have to sneak up on them and catch them off guard or out smart them. Anyway, I caught Zora and as I was taking the splint off Sarah watched and Zora licked my face. When I put her down she took off running on her leg, a little stiffly at first, but putting weight on it right away. One more episode past. The following is a video that shows what keeps me sane.
