This past Friday, my sister's horse Halle gave birth to her first foal - a filly - whose name is now Pippi (she has two long white socks on her back legs - remember Pippi Longstocking?)
As I marvelled at this lovely creature, who only 12 hours before, was still comfortable in her mother's womb, and was now standing, nursing and nuzzling us with her soft, velvelty nose. I couldn't help but be overwhelmed with our Lord and His creation! What a delight! I couldn't get enough of her - I spent the whole day at the barn just soaking up His love!
I pray dear sisters, that each day you recognize the delights the Lord gives you. They might be more subtle than the birth of a foal, but recognize the gifts. Thank and praise Him for delights! Ask Him to delight you! It could just be a butterfly fluttering around a flower, a sunrise or sunset, a rabbit bounding through the yard... delight in them and delight in Him. He is our ultimate delight and He delights in us.
