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.

Will you take a few minutes to reflect with me on what God has to say about different types of rest? Scripture • For the weary person carrying heavy burdens ...

Just a Hint of Heaven

In Mark 6:30, Jesus called His disciples to “come away and rest by yourselves.” It was an invitation to separate themselves from the work of the Kingdom, from the press of the crowds, and from daily cares. And best of all, they got to just be with Jesus. That’s what coming to Warm Beach Camp has felt like for me personally. It’s been an invitation to come away and spend time with Jesus. I have been attending family camps at ...

Words from the Heart

For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by openly declaring your faith that you are saved. Romans 10:10 NLT https://bible.com/bible/116/rom.10.10.NLT The writer of the book of Romans is sharing words from his heart. He wants everyone to understand the way to be made right with God. He longs for everyone to be saved. Listen to what is being said: Dear brothers and sisters, the longing of my heart and ...
