It was snowing as I went to the barn today to feed the horses. They were in the barn. All the doors were open so they could get out of the rain. I sleep so much better when I know they are out of the rain. They mingled around the inside arena. I took time raking up their droppings into piles to be shoveled into the wheel barrow. The whole time they would take turns getting in my way. I would stop and pat and talk to them. I know they were waiting for their hay. I wasn't quite ready for that and I had to put up with their " in my face" routine. Silly horses.
After all the hay was put out, the 4 wheel barrows of droppings shoveled up, and water filled, I went home on the slushy mountain roads. I had another appointment. I was suppose to teach today, this morning, but it was called off. Our 1:00 appointment was getting closer.
Finally after signing my name and Nate signing his about 50 times. We were owners of a new home...our own home. We have waited and looked here in Kentucky for over 10 years. It just seemed to all come together in a little over a month's time. Everything. This was definitely a God thing.
Another thing that is exciting to me is that I finally figured out how to put my Little Monster files on BookBaby. Soon it will be an ebook. Why do I continue writing? Because writing has the potential to touch a lot of hearts all over the world. That is beautiful to me....to point to Jesus and show His peace and ways.
That verse. It's been on my mind all day. I woke up at 4:30 this morning and it came to mind...meditated on it. What a blessing to have memorized verses on the heart. We try to encourage so many young people the value of memorizing scripture. John 14: 27. "Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid."
I thought a lot on the storm and the troubles it brings. So many troubles and my sadness and prayers went out to those who lost loved ones as I lay in the quiet morning. I commented to Nate yesterday as we were driving to the store what a disaster this storm will bring. ...and he said something that made me pause...much good can come out of it too.
In a few minutes I will be heading to the new house to take "stuff" there. Shiloh is bringing a friend and we will have tea. A good end to quite a day.
