Summer Nights are These

Lilies fade in the western sun.
While life lays it head upon.
Summer nights where the rain.
Has yet to touch the earth.

Crown of leaves flicker.
In the breeze that rustles through.
Heat sinks below.
With the sinking of the sun.

Summer nights will move away.
Giving way to Autumns come.
Where life awaits upon.
The glorious feel of such.

Night bounds up in sky.
Lights twinkle in the heavens.
While other lights begin to twinkle.
Upon this golden ground.

Noises rise from the night.
A choir of natures sound.
Singing to each and every.
Animal there upon the ground.

Such are these summer nights.
Sitting in silence in watch.
For what joy can be.
In the whisper of the night.

On my way

This has been a crazy past couple of months. I know most of you who might still pay any attention to my site might be wondering if I dropped off the side of the earth. Well, I kind of did, but I am back up again! As some of you know, since I graduated I have been looking into becoming an Equine Sports Massage Therapist. Its been a long road on finding a way to finance my way to schooling, But Praise Yah, he gave me a way to be able to do it.

About 3 months ago I decided I would start putting money aside each week to pay for schooling. I had it all figured out that by the end of August I would be able to start the program. The savings was going great, until Doctor bills got in the way and I had to take out of savings. So it but me a little bit behind. Then out of the blue my dad bought a motorcycle and gave it to me for working with mom. It was an amazing gift and I loved the bike. That was until I realized, it sucks being 5'2. The dirt bike was a DR250 and they are pretty tall bikes. I mean, don't get me wrong, I could ride it just fine, it was the stopping the bike that was the problem, LOL. I tipped the bike on me 4 times before I finally said, "enough is enough". So one day while working with my mom, I had the brilliant idea to sell my motorcycle to pay for my schooling. So I approached my dad to see if he was ok with me selling it, which he was.

So the bike was posted and then it was time for the waiting. Waiting for someone to be interested. Any other time, if the economy was good, it would have been snatched up in a matter of a week. Unfortunately, the flow of traffic was barely a trickle, but my dad worked really hard on posting it new places. We got a few hits, but not much. So I waited patiently, knowing Yah is good and he would send someone if he really wanted me to move on into this avenue in my life. Well the patience paid off and Yah sent a buyer today. He only had so much money but REALLY wanted the bike, but didn't have the rest of the cash at the moment. So my dad asked me if I would make a deal, which I was completely happy to do. So I got the cash and the check for the rest of the money. The guy got what he wanted and so did I, everyone ended up extremely happy with the results. Praise Yahuwah for his wonderful miracles! He is so good to me, I don't see how I deserve it at times. He has opened a window for me and let me tell you, that breeze feels wonderful. I will be starting the program for becoming an Equine Massage Therapist in two days and I am extremely excited to start!

So here comes the next part of my life. I am shutting door #1 and letting Yahuwah open door #2 for me. I told my mom today, "I feel so blessed to be able to do the kind of work I love doing at such a young age. By 23 I will have my own business and love what I do." Now, don't get me wrong, I am very aware there is going to be times where its going to be hard, and life is going to throw me curve balls, but with Yah on my side, I know it will all work out. As long as I am walking where he wants me I know he will bless me as he already has been. He has already blessed me in the work I have. I know to some it may not seem like much, working 2 hours in the morning at a stable, but it is everything to me. I want to give the work I do my all, as if I was doing it unto Yahuwah.

So if I can, I would like for each of you who read this. Think of one thing that Yah has blessed you in and Thank him for all he has done in your lives. I know at times its hard to believe, but he is right there beside you just WANTING to lift you up and praise you and say "This is my child, in whom I am well pleased." Oh, and how we all want to hear those words!
