Last Day

With hours left before my best boyfriend, TheOldMan heads for his winter home I was a sad mess.

As I brushed him he was skittish about the exceptionally noisy dogs. Then he didn’t like the loose, new gravel or the sound of power tools from what used to be his old stable next door. He reared up coming up the drive, and as I calmed him he told me he isn’t happy with all these changes. As we walked I reminded him that he’s the most wonderful boy. Soon the most delightful peace settled upon us and God’s Spirit calmed us both,

“See, the former things have taken place, and new things I declare; before they spring into being I announce them to you.” Isaiah 42:9 (NIV)

  1. Oh, this made me emotional. How sweet that he communicates with you and that you listen to his concerns and comfort him. What a special relationship you have. Spring will be here before you know it.

  3. Beautiful horse! Your post brought back fond memories of an Appaloosa I used to own. He was a sweet, sturdy, rock solid horse.
