How? Any way I can; though horses, books, and Jersey cows; through a smile or a sob at the right moment; through a listening ear, a gentle word.
And this is Clothed With Thunder, my way of lighting a small candle on a dark night through glorifying God in writing. To meet the animals and people that feature in my posts, read CWT’s Dramatis Personae. To read stories and musings on life, adventure and God, go to Clothed With Thunder: Home Blog. For equine escapades and articles on that wondrous creation, the horse, go to Riding on Water: Horses. And for the official website of my Jersey stud, see Joyful Jerseys.
There’s a very leaky ship being tossed around on this stormy sea, but I’m not worried about it. I’m getting out. I’m taking His hand, and walking on water. It’s not always easy, but His hand is always there.
I’m just a daughter, horsewoman, writer, girlfriend, child of the only living God. Join me in experiencing this wonderful thing called life.
