Izzy !

Izzy is a beautiful Registered Quarter Horse - with excellent conformation. She is a 15 year old mare that is well trained. A great trail horse and has done a lot of parade work.

She is starting to develop a bad little habit that Susan (her owner) and I are trying to correct immediately. Susan and I are trail riding buddies. Izzy lays back her ears and swings her head in your direction when you begin to tack her up. Just trying to lay the blanket on her back will get Izzy started. Susan will not tolerate that and has stepped up her scolding when Izzy mis behaves. Once Izzy is all tacked up she behaves very well.

Sometime I find myself getting a little over confident and telling God that I am fine and I don't need to do that anymore. Maybe I can put off my praying until a little later, or maybe read His word later. After all, I have been His child for years now - this Christian walk is just all routine stuff - right?

Yes, Papa, we are prone to getting full of ourselves sometimes!!!
I guess in this way we never grow up!! Sometimes I even find myself trying to tell HIM how to handle certian situations!! My mom would say "you are getting too big for your britches." My Father has to remind me of that sometimes!!

Maybe you would like to read this. Funny how 'trojan horses' never seem to go out of style. :D

Sharon - I still need to grow up! Oh well, I will just keep at it.

Ruth - very well said on your blog! Satan is so sneaky!

DEb said...

WOW....what a great analogy!! I can TOTALLY relate....and love all the horse talk. Let me know if you correct Izzy...cuz I'm praying that God correct me!!

Deb - Izzy is a fabulous horse - I like Amos, but really think Izzy is superb. Izzy's owner is a new rider and is learning and adjusting right a long. Izzy gets away with too much.

Izzy is gorgeous!

Indian Lake Papa said...

Crossview - you are right !! However, that is a picture I got off the internet! :o) Izzy does look a lot like that horse, almost identical. Izzy is beautiful with 3 white socks I believe, a sorrel color as well with a white face.
