Ready for the Adventure

The Dawn announces a new day. It waits to hear what God will say. (Phillip Keller)

I have to laugh at my dog. Whenever he sees me either put on tennis shoes, grab my camera, get my bike, or get his leash he is ready and excited. He will run to his water bowl and take a long drink. He doesn't have a clue whether we are talking a walk in pasture or the road or how long the walk will be, but he is ready. And he trusts me to lead him back home.
Do you see how this could apply to us? I need to start each morning equipped with my prayers and Bible Study and then saying, "Lord I am ready."

John 4:14 "But whoever drinks the water I give him will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life."

Winter Wheat

The winter wheat is ready to harvest.  I love riding up this road with the wheat waving in the wind on both sides. 
Seems like yesterday it looked like this. 

I think it looks better from the top of a horse.

Special Loved One

Did you know that you are God's special loved one? Why would He love you so? Maybe its because when you abide in Christ, you are so saturated in Jesus that when God looks at you, He sees His own precious Son and envelopes you in His love for Jesus' sake--Ann  Graham Lotz
"Be imitators of God, therefore, as dearly loved children and live a life of love, just as Christ loved us and give himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God." Eph. 5:1-2

 Our goofball dog, Buddy has become best buddies with our horse, Preacher. He is too trusting and I do worry about that. Gracie, being the fickle mare that she is, is not as thrilled with him. She was serious when she was chasing him here and he knew it and was flying and glancing back.
But Preacher loves him and seeks him out.

 Buddy has such trust and doesn't pay much attention to him.

Just a gentle giant and his little Buddy.

A Special Mom's Day

My daughter had us over for Mother's Day. Special printed menus--fun fu-fu food, and grandkids and nieces with aprons on serving as waiters. With son-in-law directing and arranging the service was excellent. What a way to feel so special!

Miss You Mom

Miss you, Mom. More each day. I love reading from your tattered Bible--the passages underlined and the notes, many from the Daily Bread devotion book.
Saw these today--
"We can endure life's wrongs because we know that God will make all things right."
"In everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God" (Phil. 4:6)
Let Christ be first in your thoughts in the morning and last in your thoughts at night.
(Looking at the date on this one, you had cancer and didn't know it yet)--Your troubled heart will be filled with hope and confidence as you realize there is meaning and purpose for everything in the world when you live for Him. ---
On this Mother's Day as I look back, You did live for Him each day and taught to live also for Him. 
Love you

Tiny Dancer

 It was my ballerina's end of the year program. I had visions of taking really close action shots but in an auditorium full of proud parents I couldn't get close. So I took most of them from the last row of the building. I would explain which one she was in the group but I wasn't sure myself. But they all look cute so I just snapped away.

I love the picture of the shadows chasing the little ones. Like little fairies dancing on a stage.
There is that isn't her...maybe the 6th one...

His splendor
      was like the sunrise; Rays flashed from
 His hand where
His power was hidden.” Hab. 3:4
