Earnestly I Seek Thee….

 Life has finally hit me…

It hit me harder than I thought it would. Though I guess it was silly of me to think it’d be just a walk in the park, and on a sunny day at that. No, much to my disappointment life is more like a full on sprint though the busy streets of Seattle and in the pouring rain.

I feel wet and tired, and I haven’t really even started my life yet.

That is a very scary thing… If you don’t have someone to lean on, someone to guide you.

Some decisions in my life are beginning to pop up and all around me I see doors. I made the mistake of pushing some doors open, instead of waiting for them to be opened for me by God. I found that I wasn’t trusting Him like I needed to be. I was just kind of looking around for what He wanted. I was just glancing at Him, I was blind and deft to what He had in store for me. I don’t want that for my life, I want to be listening to Him, and seeking Him. I still don’t know what it is He has planned, but I plan to earnestly seek Him and completely trust in all that He has laid out for me.

Here is a link to Aaron Gillespie’s “Earnestly I Seek Thee”. It is a tad bit rockish at a few points, but I really love the song and feeling he puts into it.

the cross

Psalm 63:1-8 NIV

1O God, you are my God, earnestly I seek you; my soul thirsts for you, my body longs for you, in a dry and weary land where there is no water. 2 I have seen you in the sanctuary and beheld your power and your glory. 3Because your love is better than life, my lips will glorify you. 4I will praise you as long as I live, and in your name I will lift up my hands. 5 My soul will be satisfied as with the richest of foods; with singing lips my mouth will praise you. 6 On my bed I remember you; I think of you through the watches of the night. 7 Because you are my help, I sing in the shadow of your wings. 8 My soul clings to you; your right hand upholds me.

Hair Cut…


No I didn’t get my hair cut, my little man did. This spring when I cut Mr. Darcy’s hair I cut a little too much of his mane. That though wasn’t too big of a deal, till he started reaching through his fence to get the grass on the other side (because as you know, it’s always greener). He was rubbing it off every time his neck went in and out of the fence.

Here we have his pretty, long, grey mane.

Now he has no mane, I had to cut it all off because he had rubbed half of it off. :( However his roached mane is kind of cute. :)

Horses…..

 

I tell you I have a GREAT weakness for horses. I still don’t know though if it’s a good or a bad thing… :D

I love the buckskin pintos, they have so much color. :)

Yes I know it’s a horse’s rear end, but I loved the color of this horses coat. It was like silver, dappled palomino.

This horse is impossible to take pictures of! He loves the camera too much, he shoves his nose right in it. This picture I did think was pretty neat though.

This little fuzz ball is no longer so small. It weighs about the same as it’s adopted mom. lol Daily French Fry looses it’s fuzz and grows a few more feathers. :) Can’t wait till it’s bigger than mom and still follows her!

Cinnamon didn’t mind because she was allowed to watch the fish in the pond. (She loves the camera!)
