Team Brecca in Fort Worth, TX


It has been a dream of Brecca's for many years to run barrels in Ft. Worth, TX.  Just something that she has wanted to do.....call it a "bucket list" item.  Well, thanks to the help of some good friends, this is their weekend.  Brecca and Digger will be making their debut in the Stockyard of Ft. Worth.  The coliseum in Ft. Worth in very small.  So keep in mind that Digger is a big horse.  So far he has exceeded all expectations of what a horse his size should do.  But with his heart and love for Brecca he always seems to make it work.
Here is now resting up.  I like to think that he is "visualizing"  his run tonight.  Since I have pounded prayer and  positive thinking into his and Brecca's heads for years!

Psalm 36:7

I've just started a new online bible study. The Confident Heart.This is all new for me. I just need something to help me focus my prayers and thoughts. I've got a couple of weeks to catch up on so I'm not in full swing as yet. Today, while perusing the bible study blog I can upon the blog hop. I'm hoping this will also be my motivation to blog more. I've been praying that God will show me how to be a blessing to others. Maybe this is it.

I've been going through a lot .... I was going to say lately, but it's actually going on for years.  I was/am married to an alcoholic. We have two gorgeous kids. A year ago August I finally got brave enough to tell my husband ENOUGH.  I've only seen him a couple times in the last year. But that's not what I'm here to write about.  In spite of the front that I put on .... I'm no longer a confident woman. I feel like a complete failure. I've not been able to "fix it".  For 25 years I've tried - prayed- cried-got angry -all to no avail. Because I can't fix someone who has no desire to help themselves.

When I first opened the study blog tonight the weekly verse Psalm 36:7 spoke to my heart.
How priceless is your unfailing love, O God!  People (Leslie) take refuge in the shadow of your wings.

How awesome is that??!!  I'm so excited to get started in this study. I can just picture myself standing under the huge covering and protection of the arms/wings of Jesus!

My prayer is that I can gain my confidence in God again. May all the glory be to God... In the name of Jesus I pray.

Hey everyone.... sorry I've been in hiding for awhile now.  I tend to do that when I'm down and things aren't going the way "I" want them to.  I've had a real lesson in learning to lean on the Lord these past several weeks.  God is good....All the time!  I also learned that God is working not only in my life but in the life of my kids.  We might now see in the moment but we will see in the long run of things.

Well....I'm tired of the way this blog looks.  This is my very first blog.  I really want something fresher..... cleaner.... more enticing.  Not sure if I sure if I should just trash this one.... try to re-arrange this one..... or start a new one altogether.  Any ideas?  I am now a consultant for DoTerra Essential oils and I will have a virtual office for that.  Plus I have some really great recipes for lip balms, hand lotions and such that I would like to share.  Maybe just a whole new blog would be the way to go. 

We shall see......

Paint Mare For Sale

POCAHONTAS - FOR SALE

Pocahontas is ready for that special family.  She is a 4 year old paint mare.  This mare has tons of potential.  She's very quiet.  Has a great handle.  Works a lot off of leg pressure.  She is patterned for barrels and poles... just needs to be finished and hauled.  She is great with kids and has an extreme "desire to please" attitude.  Please watch this video and let us know what you think!   She is still in training in College Station by Brecca Wheaton. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=10153046538830361

Easter Sunday 2013

Had a great Easter. Albeit a quiet one. No kids home. Holidays just aren't the holidays without the kids. I didn't go to church. I haven't been going regularly and I never have been one to just go on Christmas and Easter. I did have a coffee with God though as the sun came up.
Of course I still haven't learned not to cook for a big family. Maybe I will work on that for Memorial Day!!
