Every time you feel in God's creatures something pleasing and attractive, do not let your attention be arrested by them alone, but, passing them by, transfer your thought to God and say: "O my God, if Thy creations are so full of beauty, delight and joy, how infinitely more full of beauty, delight and joy art Thou Thyself, Creator of all!
- Nicodemus of the Holy Mountain

You can’t get to joy by making everything perfect. You can only get there by seeing in every imperfection all that’s joy.

Pole Bending!

I'm attempting to upload videos for the first time. Hope it works! This one is of Molly participating in the pole bending event with the Sawtooth Mountain Riders during the Cook County Fair this past weekend. It was so much fun for both of us! She's been having lessons for about 2 months this summer. It's been so much fun developing a friendship with her around our mutual love for horses. The horse is named Klu. He's a sweet little Arabian gelding whom Molly is quickly falling in love with. I'm enjoying watching them progress together!
