My Steed And I Would Take Flight

When I was a child, we had a huge tire swing that hung from a branch of a tree by the street.

It was suspended from a rope that was as big around as my arm, with a knot equally large to keep it from falling down.

When I approached this, it wasn't a swing that I saw, it was a beautiful black horse with wings to whisk me away.

I would climb up on the top, hanging on tight, and swinging back and forth, my steed and I would take flight.

Oh, the adventures we had, full of excitement and daring deeds, there was nothing I could not accomplish while riding this steed.

After a long day of riding, I would climb off my horse, and the tire would transform itself into a shelter to hide in, of course.

I would climb inside the center, and curl up there, and while away the hours without a care.

It was amazing how many things that tire could be, for whatever I needed at the moment, that was what I would see.

It reminds me of how God cherishes me so, that He provides me with what I need and places to go...at times He challenges me to dare to fly high, to pursue the dreams that He has given me to try...other times He is comfort, sheltering me under His wings, keeping me safe from the harm and ugliness the world can bring.

Whatever I need, that is what God can be, and He teaches me that with Him I need have no fear, for He's always with me.

Now many years later God has given back to me the exhilaration, the joy of being child-like and free...preparing me for wondrous things I could not yet see.

He has healed all my hurts and made my heart brand new, and then God gave me the joy of my life when He gave me you.

Now each day is an adventure, and this time it is real, for now my life's been transformed by the love that I feel.
You are the gift that has given my spirit wings, the joy fills my heart with
happiness that can't come from mere 'things'.

Every morning I wake with the thought that God loves me, and I know that it's true, for I get to share each moment together with you.


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

Oh Trish, I love this!! He is certainly our all-in-all. I could just see you taking flight on that black steed. :::smile::: And I can see you curling up in the arms of our blessed Shelter as well. Awesome article, Sis.
