At The Gait Micah 6:8
Over the last few weeks Victory’s Gait has been richly blessed. We have been given a wonderful opportunity to reflect on what it really means to be grateful this spring season. We have been blessed with new gravel for the arena and the barn at the bottom. The Mountain stewards came out and did many wonderful things for the farm such as, steps to the bottom, a walkway to the barn, and a bridge on our new TRAILS!!!!
FAITHFUL IS HE! “He who calls you is faithful; he will surely do it. I Thes. 5:24” God has indeed been faithful to us!
We were given the opportunity to have one of our dad’s come out and talk to us about safety and first aid. We covered basics, but also more advanced first aid and first responder responsibilities.
We have just resumed our K.I.U.W.K lessons. We are continuing to increase our skills and refine our savvy during the first half of lessons.
It’s that time, Spring over seed and lop those briars
If we don’t seed the horses don’t eat
So it is in Spring and Fall, fertilize and over seed
Briars create thickets and thorns that prove hard to deal with
During Summer weather
Bring your loppers and we’ll knock it out together!
In the upcoming week VG would like each team member to find a devotion to bring and share one week. It can be just a short piece that can be shared over lunch with the team. So be prepared to bring a devotion for us to grow and learn in the knowledge of our beautiful Savior together!
For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: lest any man should boast. Ephesians 2:8-9
One of our devotions this month was on judging others.
“Do not judge, or you too will be judged.” Matthew 7:1
Thank you team for all of the effort put into the book sale! And Thank you, Thank you to all the Moms who helped prepare the book sale! While we did not get as much traffic as we hoped it was a great time of growing together as a team. Our families where able to fellowship and get to know each other better through this event, we added a lot to our relationship bank account, which is even more important that our physical one! The event raised a total of $150 plus donations. The consignment proceeds were $59! The Book Sale fundraiser continues to be a work in progress. We will continue to sell books at local consignment sales. This week we will prepare for a book sale at the Cornerstone Church in Dawsonville, following up with a couple other sales through the summer… please pray that these wonderful books find good homes!
Here a few friendly reminders for your day at the farm:
- Please drive slow as you come up the driveway. There are kids, horses, cats, and dogs all running here and there, so please be cautious as you drive.
- Unless you are dropping kids or stuff off please park in the parking area by the round pen. It can get crowded with lots of people coming and going, so if you would please save parking at the top of the driveway for drop off only. Thank You!
- Just a courtesy to Mrs. Vicki and her farm, please pick up your trash when you are out in the arena, arbor, or barn. Part of being good stewards of Victory’s Gait at Sweet Dreams Farm is leaving it cleaner than we found it!
Victory’s Gait has had a few visitors come to live at the farm for a short time. Hope and Mercy are miniature ponies that belong to a good friend and are staying with us for several months.
