The other day I was milking one of my goats and the milk was flowing. It was warmer out, then the usual NW SD USA February winter, and I told Deron it would be a good day to check his bees. Since I could see him walking over there from where I sat milking.....
The thought occured, "A land flowing with Milk and Honey" . That land would need to be full of great forage, not only for the goats to eat so they could be health and breed, but to be in up most health for the milk to flow. I have been blessed with the goats we have owned, but I do know folks that have had does that did/do not flow when milking. It also takes a lot of good water for the goats to produce milk.
Then the bees will need a good warm area with lots of pollen to produce honey. I don't know much about honey bees yet. Deron does and is educating me. LOL But bees even work in the winter. They clean their hives, flap their wings to produce heat in the hive, to stay warm that is. When it is warmer they go on cleansing flights, ie, go out to poop.
Anyway, it sure make those words come more to life for me "land flowing with milk and honey" then it did before. It made it more beautiful in my mind too.
