This Is How We Play Fetch at Zoar
Beau is all grown up already. He has adopted Teddy Roosevelt's adage to "walk softly, but carry a big stick."
The flock has been spending time in the barn under heat lamps. The shepherdess went out to find a sweet scene: Deuce, and his mommy Holly, cuddled up together with the daddy, Billy.
We made snow ice cream yesterday. Simple and delicious.
We're making a good Lent, if external practices matter, but the interior so often lags behind. The Bear has been listening to an audiobook of Dr. Ralph Martin's Fulfillment of All Desire. This book synthesizes the teachings of a number of doctors of the Church on spiritual growth. It gets the Bear's highest recommendation. (Dr. Martin also wrote Will Many Be Saved? a rebuttal to the near-universalism popular today among establishment Catholics like Fr. Robert Barron.)
The Bear trusts you are having a rewarding Lent, too.
