Greener Grass

I am compelled to keep PJ and her baby in a round pen right now because the fence around the house is down due to construction. Easy is in a smaller pasture that has a creek running through it (and coyotes follow that creek). Not only am I NOT ready for them to face coyotes, but neither am I ready for PJ and Easy to work out the pecking order again with the baby in the mix. PJ is the boss of Easy, but his curiosity will compel him to check out her young 'un.
So for now the two must stay in the round pen surrounded by lush spring grass. I do go and put a halter on PJ every evening and let her graze on a lead line for a half an hour - and let the baby tear around and test her legs. But when I put her back up, you can see the longing in her eyes to be allowed to permanently stay on the green grass.
Matthew 6:30
If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?
