1/29/21 ~ I Smile...

 


I smile when I catch God watching me through the eyes of my horse…
 
There is nothing quite like the innocence of an animal or a child.  If you are unsure of what I am talking about, watch as a puppy or a dog plays in the new fallen snow.  I know I cannot remember the last time that I have unabashedly just gone out and played in the snow or jumped in a pile of leaves. Do you? 

These past few days here in Lincoln we received 12 – 14 inches of snow depending on where you were in the city.  I don’t know about you, but all that white fluffy cold stuff did not entice me to come out and play! But my neighborhood kids sure do love playing in it.  I know our pony Honey loves standing outside in it and watching it come down.  Louie… Not so much.  He’s more like me.  He wants to be in his cozy house out of the weather with a blankie, slippers and a peppermint cocoa watching tv.

But, regardless of if it is snowing, sunny or if we are just lazing around… When I look into the trusting eyes of my horse, I see God.  I feel peace knowing that even though there are times that I am far from everything I am still in the presence of the Lord.  God sees me and hears me.

Won’t you take some time this weekend for yourself?  Sit quietly and talk to God if it has been a while.  Jeremiah 29:12 says “Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you.”

Heavenly Father, please strengthen our hearts, and remind us to encourage one another when the troubles of life start to overwhelm us. Give us the strength up to rise up each day and fight against the struggles which seek to weigh us down. Amen.
