Something Special With This Team

Yesterday, at work, when everyone asked how the competition went and how ‘did Danielle do’…..it was actually hard for me to answer because I really didn’t want to single her out as getting 1st, or 2nd or 3rd or 4th because all those girls are so supportive of each other and lift each other up to such a degree, that when one wins, its as if all of them wins.

It was as I was trying to explain this to co-workers that it hit me how unique and inspiring this Warm Beach group is. From the walkers to the B team, from the horses to the coach(es), from the parents to the families, it’s all like a specialty made quilt, each part is a quilt square, some are large, some are small, all are needed, with the Lord’s presence as the ‘filling or stuffing’ of it and the competitions are as the hand stitching. Some are long stitches, some are short, some are even, some are out of line, some stitches are even missed….the end result takes your breath away!

I am so thankful that Danielle is a part of this. It is something she will carry with her, her lifetime.
Thanks again, to coach Patti, for all of her support and dedication, work, tears, laughter, prayer, all that and more that she does, behind the scenes and up front!!!

The Earth Has Yielded Its Harvest

So be patient, brethren, [as you wait] till the coming of the Lord. See how the farmer waits expectantly for the precious harvest from the land. [See how] he keeps up his patient [vigil] over it until it receives the early and late rains. James 5:7 The songbirds welcomed a crew of hearty folks to the Warm Beach Horsemanship pastures as preparations were made to bring in a bountiful hay harvest. Volunteers gathered and created a crew of loaders, lifters, ...
