Her big soulful eyes and large nostrils reminded me of the Introduction in my book, Spiritual Lessons from Nature, where I share an experience I had as a toddler with a big cow yookin' at me through a fence on the farm.
In spite of that strong inner knowing, I headed out to the parking lot empty-handed.
That's when my soul began to whisper, "Holy Cow! That painted cow was dripping with colors from an artist's palette. Aren't you looking to add more color to your life?"
It was true, I'd been feeling rather blaw...
Smiling with conviction, I hurried back to round her up. Now that purposeful cow has come home. She hangs on the wall behind my desk as a daily reminder: Add more color to your life.
Just for fun, I found an interesting comment online regarding the symbolism of cows. "Cows have large eyes that see all. The stare may be hypnotic and will tear down one's walls to find the soul." That's what happened to me both times.
Cows ultimately show us how to honor others and nurture ourselves.
Love and joyful blessings. Watch for the happy things of God to come to you today.
