Just Something God Made

If you had plans today, did you remember to spring foward you clocks and wake up on time? Well we sprung forward, but still woke up late. So as we were running around trying to get ready to get to church on time, I heard a strange bleat from out my bedroom window. We have a very small flock of sheep in our 1/2 acre pasture and you can tell by their bleating when something’s up. I took a look out my window and saw that one ewe I didn’t even know was pregnant had just had her baby.

Although I’m not much of a country girl, I never tire of baby lambs or the lambing process. Somehow through all the fuss, we still made it to church on time, Starbucks in hand. Once back from church we took a few pictures of the baby that Sarah named Lucy. Jamie went into the small barn to place the baby in a patch of sun because she was still wet. The lamb took some baby steps and began to nurse. How awesome is God!

UPDATE: Turns out Lucy is a boy. So the kids thought it would be fun to see what boy name my blog readers can come up with! Let us know if you have any ideas!!

    The perfect way to start the Sabbath Day!

    I think, having been born on Sunday, his name should be Eli (God is high).

    What a wonderful Sabbath morning surprise!

    How about Luke?
    What a splendid, blessed surprise!

    You could add a “k” to Lucy and call him Lucky! So LUCKY to have such a blessing on this fine day!

    I like Lucian, and it’s kind of the boy version of Lucy.

    Happy birthday little baby lamb!!!

    Not related to the sabbath but what about Jed?

    A male sheep born on Sunday needs a name. It’s gotta be Luke. It is, as I remember, in Luke that the story of the shepherds is told.

    Quoting Wiki here: The Adoration of the shepherds, in the Nativity of Jesus in art, is a scene in which shepherds are near witnesses to the birth of Jesus, at his birthplace, typically depicted as a barn, near Bethlehem. It is based on the account in the Gospel of Luke, not reported by any other Canonical Gospel, which states that an angel appeared to a group of shepherds, saying that Christ had been born in Bethlehem. Luke then states that a crowd of angels appear to the shepherds saying H’allelujah, peace on earth to men of good will. The shepherds are then described as being spurred by this to visit Jesus, before they return to their flocks.

    thank you so very much for sharing your photos!! 🙂 Have a BEAUTIFUL day!

    I like the name Sunday! Since you were going to church and it was a sunday. The kids might like the spelling “Sundae’ since it was a little treat that you were not expecting! I love the baby lamb! Jamie is a pretty girl too!

  11. #11 - Nancy says:

    Oh…a new life! How wonderful…

    I would name him Henry..

  12. #12 - T.Allen-Mercado says:

    Tameka, final answer.

    I kid-I like Luke or Lucky. He’s cute!

  13. #13 - sassyglassdesigns says:

    How about Lucas…he is so cute. We have had 3 new baby goats born in the last 3 weeks and 2 of the 3 were born on Sunday…they are little miracles.

  14. #14 - Annie Pazoo says:

    That lamb is adorable. And on a Sunday, too! Such great shots, with the sun streaming in.

  15. #15 - Carol B says:

    I vote for Luke. Those pictures are beautiful!

  16. #16 - missy says:

    lambert! (named after lambert the sheepish lion)

  17. #17 - Michelle Sybert says:

    God is sooo AWESOME!

    We just watched Fred Claus and I LOVE the name “Macoroni”.

    But I think Luke is a pretty fitting and wonderful name too!

  18. #18 - Jennifer says:

    So sweet. What a precious surprise. I vote for Bob…or if you may Baaaab.


  19. #19 - Robin Lynne says:

    I laughed at “Baaaab” haha.

    And how precious and adorable! I have a terrible way of naming things, so I won’t offer anything up. (I named my last kitten “Michael McDonald”… poor kitten.)

  20. #20 - Suzy says:

    Lucifer….a play on Lucy! Of course, Luke or Luc (french) is good too!

    Cathe, I just discovered your wonderful blog through Karen over at The Grapics Fairy. I’ve been a fan of her blog for a long time, now, and was just delighted to find your button labels that she posted. Of course, I thought they were so wonderful, that I had to check out the blog they came from. I have been enjoying my visit immensely! You are so talented and clever! I will add you to my “Favorites” list–by the way, I love the photos. Your daughter and the lamb both are adorable! Smiles, Jann

  22. #22 - Jen says:

    I would say Lucy in the male form would be Lucifer….but that defeats the purpose! :0)

    Adorable little lamb! Good luck with the name!!!

  23. #23 - Kathy says:

    What a wonderful blessing… I like the name Luke too!

    Great pics too!

    Keep Luci, as short for “Lucciano”, very Mediterranean!

    Greetings from Costa Rica!

  25. #25 - Whisker Graphics says:

    How about Larry? Larry the Lamb has a nice ring to it and it makes me laugh when I say it! I can see the cartoon character now!

  26. #26 - Splendid Little Stars says:

    The little lamb and its mother are both so cute! And so, of course, is your daughter.
    So many good suggestions for names. I like Luke and Lucian. Vane’s suggestion of Luci as short for Lucciano is great.

  27. #27 - Jennifer says:

    I think Luke is just perfect for him. Adorable!

  28. #28 - Cherylyn says:

    I just stumbled on to this post. Curious. What did you finally name your little miracle?

  29. #29 - Cathe Holden says:

    UPDATE: So many wonderful names! Luke is certainly in the running. It’s also my husband’s middle name.
    I will have the girls nail down a name after school TODAY!!

    Thanks everyone!!
