Many people are trying to recover from PTSD these days. Jesus said that you would have trials and tribulations so don't be surprised. So when you are given a pile of manure, remember my friend Nan's advice: "Ask God to help you to finish well by keeping you in your senses." She did finish well by spreading the gospel through her cooking and prayers up to her very last week of life on this earth.
Jesus calls Christians the salt of the earth. He may actually have meant the fertilizer of the earth. To read a blog about it click here.
PS When I find the picture of the pony that my dad and Uncle Hollie had I will post that picture also.
