To beat the heat and humidity, Elliot and I took an early morning walk. The warm sun on our backs was healing after being inside most of the week. As we were passing by the pasture, many cows and the resident horse stopped grazing. It was curious as they began keeping pace with our steps on the other side of the fence. What a wonderful feeling to all be moving forward, together in unison.
Then, to our surprise, that shiny brown horse, with his white streaked forehead, suddenly changed direction. It was as though he woke up and saw us for the first time!
Lifting his head, he began trotting toward us with great enthusiasm! I gulped, from a touch of fear. It was such a bold and sudden move. Usually the horse, along with the cows, ignore our loving calls, not giving us the time of day.
Now the lone horse was coming over to greet us. An excitement stirred the air.
It's funny how when suddenly met with the desires of our affection, we can become frightened and want to run.
A reminder of another big, warm-hearted animal gave me courage. Our sweet donkey Jerusalem donkey, Alahambre had helped me overcome a fear of large animals.
So when our new four-legged friend lifted his shiny red mane over the fence, anxious for a friendly touch, he was not disappointed, but met with love pats and sweet whispers.
The timing of the farm animals change in behavior seemed like an angel message meant to be shared. I know the horse represents movement, but back at home I looked up the meaning. "Continue forward in your efforts with discipline. New journeys are ahead. Stretch your freedom and power."
Cows represent a time of fertility and new birth. A message "to nourish yourself and others. Be as productive as you can."
I'm so thankful for the angel messages from nature. Encouragement to keep having faith, and realize there is more going on than meets the eye. Unseen heavenly support is here helping us at this time of celestial speedup. So take it one day at a time, in gratitude, and watch the results. Keep the prayers and meditations coming, stay in the now, and look on the bright side.
Enjoy your day with the Angels.
Love and joyful blessings,
