This was sent to me via email from an anonymous source, but it’s so powerful I had to let you all read it. Grab a box of kleenex…
God gives us horses and compels some of us to love them. Yet why does the horse, an animal with such a big heart, live such a short life? Perhaps it’s because if our horses lived any longer, we wouldn’t be able to bear losing them. Or, perhaps it’s because God wants to jump.
Perhaps God looks down on the fine horses we raise and decides when it’s His turn to ride. He gives us a few good years to care for and learn from them, but when the time is right; it’s up to us to see them off gracefully.
OK, perhaps not gracefully. Blowing into a Kleenex is rarely graceful. But we can be grateful.
