The Details

I've often discussed the fact that the rewards of this lifestyle are not always monetary.

If there are monetary rewards, they quickly disappear into a newer piece of machinery, into the ground to be next year's crop, or into the upkeep of the place.

However, the rewards of this lifestyle are plentiful. You just have to look for them.

Sometimes, when it's below zero for days on end, you have to look a little harder.


Sometimes you only have to look to see what's right in front of you, just waiting for her next meal.

It is undeniably rewarding to care for God's creatures and to marvel at the details.

I agree with you, and horses are one of my favorite of God's animals. I used to have horses. I hope to have another, even if I can no longer ride. I love the way they look, feel and smell:)
