Spring's new foal

Since my last post, we have a new addition to the family.  A husky filly with long legs and an attitude was born several weeks ago.  It took a little while to begin the bonding process as this mare was particularly protective and wanted no one near her baby.  As the photos show below, in time and with patience, the mare reverts back to trust and allows a friendly hand to pet her and maybe, just maybe, her colt.

Interactions occur every day in our lives - whether it is on a human level or with animals.  But there is another interaction that is around us as a constant 24 hour, seven day a week experience.... and it is with God.  There are some who are aware of His Presence and others who have not yet awakened to His reality, but the interactions are there nonetheless.  His diversity in creation is all around us in the world we live in and into the universe itself.  He is beyond the human explanation of "God" and words seem to get lost in trying to describe His power and glory that is so evident in surroundings of nature that speak loudly of His existence.  Many scripture verses reference this fact throughout the Psalms and in various chapters of the Bible.  Job 12:7-10 says "But ask the animals, and they will teach you, or the birds in the sky, and they will tell you; or speak to the earth, and it will teach you, or let the fish in the sea inform you.  Which of all these does not know that the hand of the LORD has done this?  In His hand is the life of every creature and the breath of all mankind."

My next post will be on Monday, June 5.  See you then at The Turn-Up Patch....
