What a busy day I had yesterday!I had the second part of my show clinic to attend. We had the first one two weeks ago which allowed for practice in between the clinics. My horse did awesome! The best he has ever done in the four years I've owned him!! It was so awesome!!! As I wrote earlier I bought a new bit which has greatly helped out!! The clinic was yesterday from 1:00 to 5:00. After I arrived home I turned Hot Shot out then after I fed, did some work around the barn, I plowed the arena. One of my horses has dry itchy skin which she rubs raw but I did some research and hopefully found a cure without calling the vet out! Her skin is looking better!
Tonight we have our new washer and dryer installed!!! Also more dogs were brought out to search for our missing neighbor! Nothing was found. Please keep praying everyone! Now it doesn't matter if she is dead or alive just as long as she is found! Of course we would MUCH RATHER HER BE ALIVE BUT IT'S BETTER TO KNOW EITHER WAY! PLEASE KEEP PRAYING!


Another Story....



Here is my latest story. It may sound familiar to some of you(especially heather).

Coat of Many Colors

Thinking back through the years, I allowed my mind to wander to a time when I was a young girl living in the great Smokey Mountains. We were poor like everyone around us, but one thing we had was love. I remember a time when winter arrived and I didn’t have a coat to wear. Mamma had a box of old rags that someone had given us so she decided to piece together a coat for me. Each rag was a different color but as long as it kept me warm that was all that mattered. Love flowed from her hands as she carefully sewed each piece together. As she sewed I would quietly sit by her while she told me of a story from the Bible. It also was about a coat of many colors worn by Joseph just like mine. When she finished I was thrilled to wear my new coat which was blessed with a kiss from mamma. My coat of many colors was made from only rags but oh how I wore it so proudly. Although we had no money back then, well….I was as rich as I could ever be while wearing my warm coat of many colors my precious mamma had made for me. With patches on my britches and holes in both of my shoes I hurried of to school to show everyone my brand new coat. Wouldn’t they be surprised. Upon arriving I was devasted to find the others laughing at my beautiful coat. Well I just couldn’t understand for I felt unbelievably rich. I decided to tell them of the love my momma had sewn in every stitch and the story she had gently told me. They didn’t understand as I tried to make them see that one is only poor only if they choose to be. I knew we had no money even though I was small but while wearing my brand new coat of many colors, I was as rich as I could be.

When was the last time...?

- You read your Bible?
- You talked to God?
- You praised God for all of His creation?
- You thanked God for the problems you have been having, even though you didn't feel like it? (God know what trials you personally need to face for the future.)
- You told your family you loved them?
- Your family all ate together at the same table for dinner?
- You played with your siblings instead of getting on the Internet?
- You thanked a sibling for something they had done (even if it was a really easy fast job for you)?
- You encouraged instead of bringing down?
Maybe you don't suffer with the ones above but what about these?
- You made your bed?
- You cleaned your room?
Take some time today to work on these. Don't be afraid to ask God for help- He is always there and is always waiting.
In Christ Jesus,
