New life never ceases to amaze me. Whether its a plant, animal or human the miracle is the same, and I marvel at the Creator’s perfect design.
Here on the farm we experienced new life this week. Our goats Peanut and Popcorn gave birth. Peanut had a little boy we named Brittle, and Popcorn surprised us with triplets which we’ve named Kernel, Carmel and Cracker Jack. In the whole bunch there is only one girl. (we were a little disappointed at this fact, but were quickly reminded: the Dysingers are all about boys! Yet again, I am outnumbered…) Here are some pictures.
Having triplets, they emerged in all different awkward positions, making it a difficult delivery for Popcorn. Mom, Caroline and I enjoyed playing "midwife."

Several times I have found myself standing alone out by the goat pen, just watching these new little forms of life. Four miracles have been added to this world!
