A priceless perspective. I often ask people, "If you blame God for evil, then whom do you have to thank for blessings?"
An engaging read.
Was this really non-fiction, or a night-mare (as well as a gelding?)

But seriously, you have drawn us into the whole scenario with real skill, with a great bridge into a reassuring devotional thought. Well done.
Excellent writing--You painted the scene well and concluded with a great devotional thought.
Wow, what a story and very fitting to the topic. I tried to second-guess where the inspiration would come from! I loved your ending - a great reminder of the lessons God teaches, even in the darkness of a midnight! Many thanks.
It's very well written and done well. Lovely ending.
Oh I love the ending. What a difference a fresh POV can make. I need to remember this. I'm sure so many people can relate this to their own lives, I know I did.
I saw your comment in the brick throwing comment, and I'd already read your piece. I just wanted to reassure you that it didn't click in my brain at all when I read your name. Hugs
A solidly written piece that certainly kept my interest, wanting to make sure those horses were safely buttoned up! I had trouble with the word headstall, not being a horse person, but I surmised from content what that must be. Maybe bridle could be used there for the more equestrian challenged! Good job.
It is so reassuring that God is always watching out for us, even when we don't recognize it. This is a good reminder to see things from a different perspective.

I wonder if the last thought "to whom am I preaching" should also be in italics?

Good article. Blessings, LaVonne
I felt like a friend was telling me the story. Your words are smooth to read, without any distracting hiccups, so it feels personal. And, I love that your teenager still calls you mommy. Priceless. :)

God bless~
