Not being a farm boy I can’t speak to this with authority, but I believe early winter was hog killing time. Even though that time is past, I want to address the issue of killing sacred cows. Religion has more than enough of them anyway. The Word of God is awesome! It has all the power we’ll ever need for any situation in our lives. “For the Word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.” Hebrews 4:12. All we have to do is mix it with faith, and praise God.
