I am an ordinary woman, with an amazing family, serving an awesome God.

Morning on the Ranch.

It pays to get up before the sun. I didn't want, I wanted to stay curled up in my warm bed. Its chilly out there,  man. But I decided that I would never get my sunrise picture unless I was outside when the sun rose. Funny how that works.
I got up.
I went.
I conquered.
Or something like that.
I bumped out through the field on the two track, trying to keep my car off the rocks. I was so glad that the gates were all open. Do you know what that means? It means I don't have to get my lazy self out of the car to open/shut the gates in the chilly air. Only ranchers and farmers would understand that luxury.

The ranch was still and pretty in the darkness of pre-dawn.

We've been shipping this week, so the field was empty. Just cow-paths and water tanks.
