We live in an equestrian neighborhood. A lot of us have barns in the back yard of our small acreages. Many have horses. Walking around enjoying the sight of the horses and the pretty spring flowers has been Recreation #1 since the darn virus took center stage a few months ago.

The beautiful scenery makes you feel 100% different than when you are glued to the bad news, much of it fake. It seems like there are people in positions of power who are trying to drag out and even expand the misery of covid-19 well beyond the need for precautions. It seems as though they want to keep us all isolated, depressed, scared and mad at the world. That’s 100% different from what God wants from us.

So my friend and I were delighted yesterday to spot this funny addition to the horse statue at the western gateway to our neighborhood. Someone still has a sense of humor and wants to cheer others up.

You go, neighhhhhh-bor!


All the days of the afflicted are evil:

but he that is of a merry heart hath a continual feast.

         — Proverbs 15:15
