Miracle Ranch

Howdy friends! Summer is nearly upon us! I am very excited to tell yall that Ill be working as a wit (wrangler in training) at my favorite camp called Miracle Ranch.
Last year I heard about this camp from one of my riding pals so I decided to check it out! I am so glad that I did. I quickly filled out the paper work and a few months later I showed up at the hiring weekend. God had his hand in all of it thankfully cause I got hired! The summer of 09 was the best summer of my life. And I got to make some pretty awesome friends!
Sadly summer had to come to an end :( But thats ok! Summer is here again!! 6 out of 7 wits are returning. The 7th one is the only guy. The rest of us are girls. It is very exciting that us 6 returning wits are all able to be hired. The horsemanship directer just couldnt choose between us :p And we still get a newbie!
So why am I so passionate about Miracle Ranch? I have seen and felt God work miracles there and I have witnessed campers surrender their lives to Christ. I have met some of the coolest people there and Ive made the best of friends. And then there are the horses. I LOVE HORSES!
I was once told Miracle Ranch was home away from home. At first I didnt understand what that person meant. Now I do. :)

What God Says About Horses

Do you give the horse his strength

or clothe his neck with a flowing mane?

Do you make him leap like a locust,
striking terror with his proud snorting?
He paws fiercely, rejoicing in his strength,
and charges into the fray.
He laughs at fear, afraid of nothing;
he does not shy away from the sword.
The quiver rattles against his side,
along with the flashing spear and lance.
In frenzied excitement he eats up the ground;
he cannot stand still when the trumpet sounds.
At the blast of the trumpet he snorts, 'Aha!'
He catches the scent of battle from afar,
the shout of commanders and the battle cry.
~Job 39:19-25
