Way Back Wednesday--Ride On


    This is me at about age 9 on my cousin, Jamie's pony--Blackie.  I remember this vividly because it was so much fun riding the pony in their front yard.  It makes me want to go ride down at Hearts n Hooves down the street right now.
     Life is like a horse.  You are riding along thinking you've got it all under control and then without warning, you're knocked to the ground.  The falls remind us of how little power we really have.  Trying to guide our lives without God's direction is like riding bareback with no grip on anything.  Your hands should be gripped on the reins of God's word.  It will guide you wherever you go.
    I hope your happy trails are guided by His light.
