This is a picture of wild mustangs - to me, they are beautiful! They run free in certain parts of the U.S. They appear to have a life of ease, but not so. Wild horses have their predators and are always watching for danger. Did you know that wild horses rarely whinny? The reason being is that the noise would give predators their location.
Wild horses may travel many miles in a day trying to locate water and an area to graze - life is tough for a wild mustang.
I have been watching many children this week here at the church camp going up and down our street on their bikes, laughing and playing. But this morning papa was shaken back to reality about the children.
At about 7:30AM I went to the Prayer Cottage and found several new prayer request cards. Some had apparently been filled out by children. One requested prayer for her father. "My dad has left and gone away, I am afraid I will never see my dad again." Another child, maybe same family, requested the following; "I wish I could hug my dad, I miss him."
I need to pay attention as much as I can as to who is hurting around me and make sure I listen when God prompts me to step in. I really don't want to miss helping when those opportunities come by. There are a lot of hurts covered up out there.
