Silver Sunday

It's been a busy and stressful two weeks: up early and out the gate before dawn, home long after the sun sets. But I am thankful to the Lord, my God, for:

- our powerful flashlight that allows me to feed my animals in the dark and keeps me from tripping in holes the dogs have dug in the yard.

- my coat and gloves that keep me warm during this cold snap, and my ski pants (leftover from our days of living up north) that have been SO welcome on some really cold mornings.

- reliable transportation that gets us where we need to be when people are depending on us.

- watching the sun rise and the sun set

- donuts and coffee

- the water trough heater that keeps the horses' water from freezing, and the heated bucket for the goats, plus opportunities to refill the trough and bucket when the temperature was above freezing.

- my boss, friends and others who have been so understanding.

- His plan, whatever it may be. His plan is always good.

Silver Sunday

Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; 
for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 NIV
