happy times

That's my daughter, Rachel, on her little Arabian, Brat.  He's pretty high-strung, and needs to be ridden every day for a while... but I'm a bit of a coward when it comes to horses with an ornery streak.  If I can work up the nerve, I'll see what I can do with him.  The first thing I'll do is find something else to call him:  Words have power ("Death and life are in the power of the tongue..." Proverbs 18:21) and if you call someone "Brat" all the time, it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy.  So, I'll figure out some kinder, gentler moniker.  Others may use whatever name they see fit; but he will no longer be "Brat" to me.  For more pictures of our day yesterday, see Rachel's journal.

I'm set for the Super Bowl:  I have cheese ball made, and also the hamburger dip, which I only have to warm up later.  We'll have the family favorite potato soup for our noon meal, and I'll make some gingerbread and Jello salad.  Easy fixin's!

Your daughter is so pretty and has the sweetest smile! She reminds me alot of my daughter Amanda! I love the horse, he is so beautiful! I knew that words have power but had forgotten the passage in the Bible you mentioned! Thanks for a reminder!
