I have never been an outspoken person and wouldn't have any idea how to share my faith with others, but lately I have been questioning why I believe the way I do. Last night I got to remembering things that have gone on. The complete feeling of peace when I have been told that everything is going to be all right. That happened when my parents were driving home in a really bad snow storm, when I was about to have major surgery for cancer, and after I got home from the hospital after that surgery. I got that same feeling when I got my horse so many years ago and she didn't pass the vet check. I knew she would not have the problems they said she would. I also had always gotten the wrong number until after the deadline to return her and then, dialing the same number, got the person I bought her from.
A few months after my surgery I found out that one of my dogs had two large tumors and only two months to live. Prayers went up then and the thought that I would take him by my vet here (he was being fostered at the time) and see what they could do for him. The tumors were gone when we got there. It is four years later and he is healthy and happy as long as his brother stays out of his way.
The main thing I remembered so clearly last night was how I learned a lady from our church had passed away. Not from a human telling me, but through a song on the radio. I can't remember the name, but it talks about don't cry for me when I die because I will be in Heaven with Jesus and walking hand in hand with grand--daddy. I knew why I was hearing it. That was confirmed when the pastor told of her passing.
I don't know the reason all those memories came back. Maybe it was to reassure me as to why I believe. There are so many things in this world that one cannot figure our, and so many questions asked. I think I needed to remember those things and I need to keep them in my mind. Maybe, also, the memories that give me the reasons for my beliefs will help with my weight loss battle. To trust in the Lord to help me through.

I have been missing the SparkPeople messages lately. I haven't received any email from them for 2 weeks. I go onto the site and the teams, but it seems that I am not seeing anything that is going on. I am just wondering what happened. I have checked my email preferences and with the internet provider.

I don't know really why it seems so long other than the heat, I guess. I did take one dog for a short walk this morning and then went to Murdock's for the 4-H cook out. With little money, hamburger and drink for $0.25 is a pretty good deal. There was also a pack burro group there with one burro all decked out in his pack stuff. I took about 3 pictures of him. Then there was a lady with a mini-horse that just came to her knees, so I took pictures of her, too. When I got to the barn I found out how well my pictures came out -- NOT. I didn't have a memory card in the camera and it was too late to go back for more pictures.
I got the grain unloaded and walked around and visited some of the people there at the barn and found out my friend wouldn't get there till about 5, so ended up waiting till then for a ride and the nice breeze went away so it was pretty hot again. But I did have a nice ride, even cantering for a little bit (I'm not too great with balance right now since I wasn't riding for a while and have a balance problem from neuropathy, though it is better on the horse than off). Afterward Fancy got some grazing and some grooming and her West Nile Vaccine before the mosquitoes come out full force down there. She was a happy girl and so was I.
But once I got home, I felt worn out. I think I will try to go to bed a little early tonight.
