~Photo-a-day~ May 28-June 3

I didn’t feel like this weeks pictures turned out very well but after going through them and editing them…I was pleasantly surprised!

A man drowned on Thursday, at White Rock Park (IN) after jumping from a platform. (we used to live close to this park) He was only 30! Apparently this platform, he jumped from, is 30 ft. high and the water below was 20 ft. deep. Only one person is suppose to jump at a time and he and his friend both jumped at the same time. I don’t really think this had much to do with his death. His friend surfaced-but he never did. I can only imagine what his friend feels like. This was a very sudden reminder that life is nothing but a vapor and we are all not guaranteed tomorrow. My future is in the hand’s of my Creator and as a believer I have peace in knowing where I’m going, when my time is up.

On Saturday I went trail riding for the first time with my friend Lynnell. I arrived early and helped her pick her strawberries (I absolutely love picking strawberries btw) and then we saddled up and headed out. I rode her Tennessee walker, Peggy, and she a cute little red roan, named Sky. It’s hard to describe the feeling I get when I’m riding under the blue sky, wind blowing through my hair, sunshine burning down on my neck and arms, and all around me the birds are singing…and best of all I’m on a horse! how do you describe that?!?!?…YELL just yell at the top of your lungs!   We rode for five hours=) So much fun! I got a fair amount of sun to say the least=)

Sunday I turned right around and went for a 6 mile ride with Christina and one of her Amish girlfriends…I love “girl”  conversations…aka dreaming out loud. And this time I was on my own beautiful horse, Sam. It was lovely out that day as well, but just as we were leaving a storm began to blow in with a much needed rain. Oh and I drove the horse trailer on the highway for the first time…I was terrified! lol, but hey now I can do it…so watch out=)
