Remember when I said how miraculous it was when all five horses came trotting when I called Smarty's name yesterday? Well, I was so excited about how well it went that I forgot to close the back gate. When I went outside to feed them later they were gone.
I had no idea where they were at. It was totally my fault. I drove around but couldn't find them. I walked east. I couldn't find them. I was pleading with God the whole time to help me.
Finally I found them west of the place far out in the wheat field.
When I saw them I ran and of course tripped and fell.The bag ripped and treats went everywhere, but I wasn't fazed. I got up and ran toward them until they started running toward me.
We made it to the pen. I made sure both gates were shut and I went panting inside.
In the process, I lost my phone. It is dead somewhere in the wheat field (yes, I looked). It was just a dumb phone. I ordered a new dumb phone which should be here in a few days (dumb as opposed to a smart phone). I also lost one of my husband's gloves because for some reason I wear his coat and gloves when I am out with the horses these days.
And that was my day yesterday.
God will help you too even when you've caused the whole thing. He never condemns His children. He never said, I told you. He's always faithful, always encouraging, always present.
