In January, Frank Berry gave me a ticket for the Augusta Futurity. At the event, while watching a horse and rider move back and forth in the herd of cattle, I asked the man standing beside me, dressed in typical western clothing, to explain what was happening. He described the activity as a process of settling the cattle before the start of the competition in which a cowboy or cowgirl would separate, or cut, individual cattle from the others. I remarked that all of us can use some settling occasionally and he agreed. “Be still, and know that I am God” (Psalm 46:10a).
