Years later as I thought to myself…I never got a horse.

What happens when you start to think that you never got a horse?

Shiloh

On Phil’s Farm, my daughter received a pony from friends but I felt I never got a horse. Then as I prayed about it, God reminded me of how it all began and how He had provided my horse. When we moved in there was a lady who had been keeping her horses in the field and asked us if we would be ok if she kept having them in our pasture. We agreed. One of the horses was getting sick and old and eventually died. After that she stopped coming and I started taking care of Shiloh. Even till the end when he passed away at an old age, I was there petting him as he breathed his dying breath. I felt the need to call her and let her know what was going on. And then what did God show me, that He did provide me the experience of a horse and taking care of it, I never rode him, but my kids got to. He was a great horse and I miss my gift from God of a great horse named Shiloh.

Considering the dream of an 8 year old boy

Driving down the road considering the dream of an 8 year old boy

As I was driving down the road, I considered how as a young boy I considered getting a horse. In the process I realized I could get a job that would allow me to save up for a horse, however, continuing the math, I wouldn’t have been able to keep the horse. I turn to God and asked “If it was you who put the idea to have a horse in my head as an 8yr old boy and you really want me to fulfill the dream, can you put it within 20 minutes of the church?” And the journey began, 21 properties later, Phil’s Farm was started.
