2016-05-03 - Their Sounds
It's silent before I walk in on them, early in the dawn. As I open the barn door, their ears perch high on their heads.
They start to whinny, snort and stomp their hooves. Louder and louder, as if they are calling, "Get our food! Rub our noses! More hay today! Hurry!"
The grain goes into their bins. One by one, they get quiet. Lastly, a very peaceful sound is made. It's the sound of satisfaction.
It sounds so simple - yet it is so soothing. It's their teeth politely munching their feed. It's a snort of thanks here and there.
I sit back and heed to the silent sound of serenity. The horses, their majestic actions and sounds release healing.
They tell the story of our lives. "Love me! Feed me! Fill me!" Their sounds reflect our innermost wants and needs. Their sounds deliver.
While horses offer a spiritual experience for me, I know the Source of the experience.
Philippians 4:19 And my God will meet all your needs, according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.
What may seem mundane can actually be God speaking to us - God reminding us that He offers to meet all our needs. He never fails.
