Unexpected Blessings

The sun was shining as three women saddled their horses at the Warm Beach Camp stables, but this ride was not for campers. They had a much different purpose. The ladies mounted their horses and made their way up the hill toward the Warm Beach Senior Community.  

The COVID-19 crisis has meant that the Senior Community residents have been quarantined since early March. As for many of us, lock-down has led to feelings of isolation and sadness. The ladies from the Warm Beach Horsemanship program hoped that a visit from the horses might encourage the residents, even for a few minutes.  

Upon arriving at the Senior Community, the horses and their riders took to the sidewalks. Some residents were already on the porches of their apartments. Heads popped out of windows. Some stood tentatively at their doors, while others approached the horses boldly to pet each one on the nose. The horses moved slowly, seeming to understand their purpose. They stopped for each resident. They stopped in gardens, front windows, and porches. Many residents reminisced about the horses of their youth, and some just seemed happy to have a visitor. Two hours later the horses made their way back to the stables and the residents to their apartments, each with a lightness in their step.  

While our days seem to be filled with uncertainty there is joy and provision in the waiting, beautiful and unexpected blessings. Keep your eyes open and your ears tuned to the Lord. He hears our hearts and responds in the most unexpected ways.

God Speaks through Rosie

I have recently been given the opportunity to work with Rosie, one of our newer horses that we are bringing along in training here at the Warm Beach Horsemanship barn. I am always excited to get to know a new horse and their personality. However, it didn’t take long to realize this sweet mare harbored a lot of anxiety and worry. I tried to coax her into calmness with gentleness and patience, but she still didn’t fully trust me. When ...
