Trash & Neglect #1

I was reflecting on the latest post by Tam in which she was dealing with that unwanted job of cleaning up the "old house" after you have moved out. Not fun, you find dirt and garbage you didn't know was there.... and you thought your house was quite clean.

Poor Cookie, the horse in the picture, neglected, dirty, filthy needs some TLC. I fed her today and she is doing well. I will post an update of Cookie when I reach 10 comments on this post! :o) That is if you want to see if she recovered.

You and I need to make sure we keep the trash out of our lives and not neglect our souls. Neglect can be devastating just as much as accumulated trash. Cookie? She is fine - however, shortly after this picture was taken, she gave birth to a beautiful foal that was still-born. Neglect and trash can destroy your life - and others.

Cookie is beautiful..I know not with human eyes, but as a creation of Our Creator. My heart breaks over neglect and abuse..today I stopped to check out a crate along side of the road, for puppies or whatever was in it, because people abandon animals alot..it was empty but had signs that something was in it, and had escaped..

We certianly need to allow the Holy Spirit HIS cleaning rights and to be very cautious what we are taking in..whether through our eyes or ears. Good Post and great thoughts! Love me some Papa and Mama!

God is so good to clean us up, nourish us, and dress us in HIS righteousness! what a beautiful picture of Grace, and the Love we can't even fathom.

Cookie is a gorgeous horse!
