Happy...Easter....

" For God...So Loved the World...that He Gave...His Only Begotten Son...that, Whosoever Believeth in Him...Shall not Perish...but Have...Everlasting Life."
John 3:16

This is the first verse...I learned...as a very young child...
It touched me...so...
Still...does...
Hope you all...Have a Beautiful...Easter...
Love...to You...and Yours...

{ I remembered...thinking... at 5...when I first heard this verse...
 I had just lost my beloved Pony..."Little Red"... to a drunk driver...
when the neighbor's Stallion...had run our horses... through the fence....
I remember...standing...with Dad...holding...tight...to his pant leg....
in the cold...on a dead end road...in the Early Morning...just...Sun Up...near... where we lived....{we had been driving the back roads....searching....for Little Red...for some time.... we came across the wreck...}
 The Sheriff...and the driver...were arguing...
 The driver was threatening...to sue Dad....for the damages...to his car...
I stood there...just... looking...at Little Red's...Lifeless Body in the ditch...
and...knowing...somehow...he was gone...forever..
The Officer...straightened the man out..... { God...Bless...The Sheriff's Department...}
 I thought...when I first heard John 3:16.... how...Heart Broken I was....losing my Best Friend...
 Little Red....
How God...must have felt...Losing...His Only... Son...
I'll Never....ever...forget...that....}

Happy Easter...to You...Sweet Betty...
I hadn't thought about Little Red...for a long time...and I wept...while writing the post...I learned to ride...on Little Red...Dad called him my babysitter... I would literally fall asleep on him... I learned to ride...before I could walk... The vision...was in my head...of his torn up body...in the ditch...for so many years...That was my very first...'Death'... of a loved one... I didn't cry... I really think...I was in shock... I was 4 years old...I cry...now...while writing this...dang it...
That Pony...and I had a Bond... and yes...he's with Dad...and Dolcey...White Cloud... Admiral...and all of my beloved... Soul Mates...
Thanks...Betty...for the kind words... You may never know...how very much...they mean to me...
Love...to you...
Sweet...Betty...
