Trash & Neglect!

Same horse -- six months later! When we get the neglect and trash out of our lives, God will change us, if we let him. Cookie is a phenomenal horse - I have ridden her a couple of times.

She is beautiful! This is such a beautiful illustration of a rebirth, a renewal, a cleansing!

Why do we make life so difficult...

I don't know Tam, I just don't know. I think too many times I walk by Christ and don't even know He is there.

Hi papa! What a beautiful picture! Thank you for joining our blog world, and sharing your beautiful wife too!

I know what you mean papa...sometimes I'll go through an entire day without talking with my Lord...it really makes me sad sometimes...His love for me, for all of us is so intense...I don't think we even have a clue.

Amazing transformation! What love can do! In the book I recently read by Mother Teresa she said to watch for Jesus in "distressing disguises."

Seems like you do a good job at that!

Beautiful! Isn't it amazing that God can actually see beyond to what should be and if we let Him, what will be??!!

And I know that too often I see someone as kind of an old nag looking creature and God nudges me to remember that I'm not seeing them through His eyes...

Thank you for the illustration/reminder! =D

I like that Robin, "distressing disguises". We miss those too often.

Confession time for me - Sunday I was upset over a serious incident that someone had pulled. Stewed over it all day Monday. Monday night was "Dare to Care" at church. WE have four groups; Prayer group, note writers, phone calls & a visitation group. I am a note writer.

Note writers select from a stack of cards people who could use a note of encouragement. Our group coordinator gave me the individual I had been stewing over! :o( !! I did it and asked God to forgive me for my attitude. God sure has a lot to teach me.

Yup, God is so creative. He'll get us right where we're at...every time! We're always in a learning process. My father in law calls it "Perfection in Progress". And we'll reach it on the other side...Hallelujah!

For some CRAZY reason I tend to learn best this way too....

Keep praying!
