It is different not working with horses everyday. There are times I wonder about them, and even miss them, but then I know they are in good hands. And I also know that if I did start working with horses like I had been the last years, the pain would come back.
It took lots of effort to take care of 11 plus horses. There was feeding, brushing, riding, training, and all the rest.
I do not have pain anymore. I do work of course, but it certainly is not the same. Tonight I took a walk in the park with Selah. It is a good 45 minutes at least. This is usually a prayer walk. It is a creative thinking walk. It is a planning walk. It is an enjoying nature walk. Sometimes all these things are wrapped up into that 45 minutes. It is good.
I've said before on facebook, that Selah is a people magnet. She is! When I am at the park with Luke and take Selah along, the children come to pet her and we talk. Sometimes parents do too. The other night a father took a picture of his little girl with Selah. She hung around her for quite awhile.
As I walk along the road, neighbors call out and inquire about Selah. I walk to their porch and talk for a bit.
During the days while Nate is at work, I work too. I have been doing an online store. It is doing quite will, I suppose f,or I go the post office regularly with packages. What is that saying? You get out of it what you put into it? Yes, I do think that is true.
I also work on my art. The next horse coloring book is in the works. Here is one of the pictures.
Then I have another coloring book that is in the works. I love it!
Our house progress is going slow. Hopefully tomorrow we will get some answers about when we will do the closing. The appraiser took a long time. We go by the store and see that the owners are cleaning it out. Progress is being made. We look forward to the project. We look forward to getting our "stuff" out of storage. Soon! There are so many things I am missing...then again...it has been interesting living out of a suitcase. We go away for the weekends and I don't even have to pack. Away it all goes with us.
There have been two verses in my thoughts lately. One is Proverbs 3:5, 6, 7, 8 about trusting in the Lord with all your heart...and not being wise in your own eye...fearing the Lord and turning away from evil.
The other is Matthew 11: 28-30 about giving the Lord all the burdens, for His yoke is easy and His burden is light. I would rather learn of Him and keep my focus on Him. It is most peaceful for my heart.
Okay. That's all...
Oh wait...I had fun tonight with Luke gathering Hickory nuts. There is a big tree in Simeon's yard. They are now curing for a couple weeks. When you come visit we can get some out and crack open a few. :)
Have a great day in the Lord.
