New colt that came in today! A Mr. Duck Smith special 😍This guy hasn’t had to much done with him. He leads and stands for the farrier. Very nervous with people but wants to please. With a nervous horse I always want that forward step towards me that’s what’s going to build his confidence in me and will stay connected to me. I never want him turning away or backing up. Unless I ask. #itsthelittlethings#coltstarting#ranchhorseprospect#foundationtraining
Adventures in the mountains are my favourite. Adventures in the mountains during fall are even better. I always get a different perspective when I see something so beautiful, grand and absolutely nothing we can take credit for.
When my Dad was diagnosed with cancer I made a point to start saving his voicemails.
They now serve as invaluable pick-me-up's and I have yet to listen to all of them. I'm savoring them so they don't lose their shine.
Oh, and the coming downstairs part? Well, when I convinced my parents to move to NC both my husband & I, as well as my parents, rented from the same complex.
It was the closest I had lived to my parents in 4 years and my Dad loved it. I did as well.
It’s almost fall and this week’s #itsthelittlethings includes something new I’m trying, this darling fall porch from @lizmariegalvan that’s inspiring me for fall, and a new cookbook I’m loving! Come see - click the link in my profile and this pic.
How amazing is God’s love? In case you didn’t know or need a little reminder:
As He Knit you together, He loved you (Psalm 139:13).
Before you could choose Him, He chose you (John 15:16).
When you were broken, bitter, and blaming. He made you whole and showed you the sweet taste of forgiveness (Psalm 103:8-12).
When you had no hope, He became your hope (1 Peter 1:3).
When you were too busy with the cares of this world, He interrupted you to show you what is eternal (Psalm 90:4).
When you were lost, He found you, rescued you, and showed you that His mercy and justice will prevail (Luke 15). When you were disappointed, He taught you that disappointments can bring you to appointments He ordained (Romans 8:28). May you have a great weekend and may you know how much you are loved. 💛
Now seems like the best time to remind you to purchase your tickets to our event on October 7th!! Link in bio.

DOUBT || Is it just me, or is it super easy to care what others think or feel?
As I continue to look inward and observe how I react moment by moment, I am overwhelmed with the ease of relying on others for love, comfort, and validation.
This is limiting me and what I experience. I observe fear of someone else’s discomfort so to avoid that rejection, I act another way or say something else. This involves a false sense of control... -
What if I used my doubt in others as an opportunity to build my faith within myself? What if instead of trying to control the moment, I freely accept what is happening and am there... with myself? 🤔 😊
What do you do when you experience doubt?
I ate a salad for lunch and there was a piece of lettuce that looked like a happy beluga!!!! 😃 #itsthelittlethings

This little boy holds so much in his eyes...you can see it! He's the sweetest guy. .
Swipe, and when you get to the big smile picture this....Arik runs into the kitchen about 50 times a day. I call after him: bubba, come here! I round the corner and there he is....already smiling like that 😂. You can't help but smile around Arik 💙. #Ariktheadventurer#sweetboy
Woke up early this morning and was able to take an extra long walk with bud and enjoy the conservation area next to where we live. I spotted this leaf and decided to bring it home; I love the different shades of red during foliage. 🍁
I was also able to cook a quick but healthy breakfast. It’s amazing how well your morning goes after some exercise and nutritious food. 🍳
I hope you all have a good day❗️😊 #happyfriday#itsfriday#goodday#morningwalk#freshair#breakfast#itsthelittlethings#healthyroutine

Last weekend my lovely, kind friends at @thefreshflowercompany told me to drop off my vases and they would fill them with flowers for my Makelight Gathering. My left hand is really rubbish with scissors...even the left handed ones, so if I had tried this myself it would have been a disaster!
I have been so touched with all the help I have been receiving since I broke my hand. Thank you everyone! xxx
