Visual Metaphor For Life

As some of you know Craig is a shearer.
He sent me this photo the other morning.
It is the view from the toilet door where he was working....
Crisp clear day.....
Clear blue skies....
Contented cows grazing very nearby.....

then he sent me another photo.....
the inside of the shed....

This is the bin where all the dags are placed.
A dag is the pooey wool from sheep's behinds!
A lot of people understand that shearing is extremely hard physical work but I bet you haven't stopped to think about how much shit they deal with!

Anyway, I thought it was a good visual metaphor for life. We wish all our skies were blue and our days full of contentment but well, we also have shit to deal with, and that's life.
The good with the bad.
My Prayer for you....
May your horizon be serene and calm and your dag bin small.

Thank you all for your well wishes too and the very kind comments last post.
