We had a fun walk today. This is Ruth's birthday and tomorrow is Joan's. Joan's daughter Faith asked her mom, "were one of you adopted? How could grandma have 2 babies 1 day apart?" We could see her mind working, then comprehension learning that they were 1 day and 5 years apart caused us to all burst out laughing.
Berean was called off today as the mail wouldn't get picked up on time. With a free day I figured it was time to do a stove job on the kitchen which needed cleaning pretty badly. Before I even started the job though the AC sermon website was brought up and I chose to listen to Mark Streitmatter from Bloomington. His sermon was on Hebrews 11. That is such a good chapter and of course all on faith. I wasn't done with cleaning the kitchen when that was over so went to pick out another and scrolled down to page 5 where I noticed Earl Ringger had visited Morris North and had both morning and afternoon services. I chose the afternoon and again that sermon was on Hebrews 11. About that time the question is flying through this dim brain that just maybe these were for ME! Just have Faith.
The afternoon was spent outside. Dr. Hoerr was due to come to draw blood on 10 horses for the Coggins and sonagram Rosalie, Oksana, Sangria, and Easter Lilly. We decided to also sonagram Galena. She was confirmed in foal last year due June 25th, 2017 but just didn't look pregnant anymore. I put Jenis, Galena, Oksana, Ayanna, Eliza, Anna, Indy and Zalena in the indoor then took Sangria, EasterLilly, Arturo, and Rosalie in the stall barn. When taking Arturo out the gate fell off the hinge. Karin arrived at the perfect time to help put that back up. Dr. Hoerr arrived just minutes later and drew blood for the Coggins test first then went into the stall barn for ultrasounds. Sangria was done first.
She was pregnant and is due Sept 14th, 2017. At 3 and a half months along the foal was too big to fit on the screen but Dr. Hoerr was able to show Karin the different parts as they came into view.
Easter Lilly was next up and she too was confirmed in foal. Both of these mares were bred to Valiant. Easter Lilly is due Nov 6th, 2017. She will be the last to foal if she doesn't lose this baby.
But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
OK GOD I got the message! I DO believe I DO have faith. He loves me enough to reassure me HE is REAL! He LOVES me enough to tell me 3 times today.
