A newly born calf and the resident dog on the farm 'Maxi' make contact, each recogising that they haven't met before. All new arrivals go through the same process and after a few minutes they are the best of friends!

 

Thought on Thursday - April - 23/04/2009

ĎIf in these critical times we are living through - if the questions that are absolutely fundamental to the existence of life are not being asked, then we all suffocate on peripheral and trivial obsessions, abandoning and abdicating from the very purpose for which we exist.í ~Mark Ballabon

Itís true we take a lot for granted. Our hearts beat an extraordinary 100,000 times a day. There are 100,000 miles of blood vessels in our body. There are 100 million light sensitive cells on the retina of our eyes. Our brains can make thousands of calculations in a second while only using the same amount of power as a 10 watt bulb. We can distinguish over 4000 smells and we can see stars that are million of miles away. In the middle of all these interesting statistics we have our own unique finger print and DNA print. Our bodies are truly extraordinary and yet we often trivialise much of what we do because we simply take so much for granted. Everything around us just doesnít happen. We are part of Godís tapestry, Godís unique masterpiece. What a shame if we take it all for granted.
