There's A Horse In Our Front Yard !
There have been many animals spotted around our house. Mostly we see deer, wild turkeys, neighborhood dogs and lots of birds. But, this was the first time we have seen a horse right out side our windows ! You see we have a neighbor that helps take care of some horses nearby. She has started exercising them in our neighborhood. She sometimes hooks them up to an old Amish type buggy and takes a nice buggy ride down our street. It is very charming to see the horse and buggy slowly trot along. She says that you really see life differently when you slow down, breathe the fresh air and enjoy the quietness and beauty of a buggy ride. I wonder just how much we miss out on by riding in cars everywhere, with our windows up and radios on......
In the morning, O Lord, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait in expectation. Psalm 5:3
