NOT Cattle

We had to drive to a local Bible bookstore this weekend which just happens to be located near the biggest mall around. Oh my word, the traffic.

We drove past most of it to get to our destination but I couldn't help but stare at the LONG line of cars all trying to get into one lane and one place at the same time.

It reminded me of cattle. Moo. Get in line.

I went to college in a country town and the agricultural department had cows out by the highway. At milking time, the cows just automatically got in line to be milked. No questions asked. Moo.

May I just say......we are not cattle. Get out of line!

I was so glad we weren't in that line for the mall. And I was so glad to read this article today too.

Why are you doing what you are doing? Not just at Christmastime, but in all aspects of your life? Are you just in line doing what the other cows are doing? Or are you depending on God's road map for your life?


  1. nice Brenda! That's what I say about public school, the concept anyways, especially the bigger schools... the bell rings and the herd gathers through the halls... =)

  2. Good post with lots of food for thought. I wanted to read the article too, but it's password protected.


I don't get to talk to a lot of actual grown-ups during the day, so your comments make me really happy! :)
