A Step Closer


Just a few more days until She makes the initial step…a step closer to following the dream. Not just her dream, but her Pa’s dream for her to do what she loves, what they have talked about for what seems like years. My dream of her enjoying the youth that is before her. The very first Horse Show Competition is upon us. She is excited to say the least, and nervous, and filled with more emotions than I, as her mother, am even fully aware.

Today, we set out to gather what she needs. We hope to find everything she will require to do her best. My thoughts ponder on the things she already has…. on the inside, and how I can nurture those to be at their best.

boots3Her Riding Apparel – May you always know that what is on the inside of your soul,  make your outer garment your royalty.

bootsHer Riding Jacket – May you always clothe yourself in a garment of praise for God’s glory – it is here from which all of your blessings will flow.

boots5Above all, live every moment…enjoy every ride with all of your heart. Every good gift was given to us when you came into our lives. What a blessing you are to us, and already a blue ribbon daughter no matter the competition.

Colossians 3:23- Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men.

Ride on sweet girl…another step closer.
