All of my Unity buddies said they were skipping service this morning to go to the Psychic Fair instead...soooo....I ditched service too, and instead of the Fair, I decided to go for a meditative horseback ride on Shunami to the little town cemetery for some photo ops, and then maybe catch the Fair later.
The ride was peaceful, but Shunami seemed a little "on edge".
Then, I saw over the southwestern horizon, a big black storm was brewing up and coming our direction fast, with lightning in the lead and clearing out a path! Now, I have a deep seated lightning phobia, and being caught on the backroads on horseback in a lightning storm is one of my worst fears....and there it was, my worst fear...headed straight for us!! *enter dramatic music*
We were a mile from home, and I wanted to panic, but I had to get a hold of myself, because Shunami would pick up on it. Shunami stepped up into gait (she's a Missouri Foxtrotter) as the lightning crashed in the background. We made it home literally in the nick of time, and I no more pulled the saddle off of Shunami's back and turned her loose in the pasture when the storm WAS HERE! EEK!
I am wondering if our Creator was shaking his finger at me for ditching church this morning, hehehe!
Shunami waits patiently for me to take some photo's..
A darling little autumn cherub sits sweetly in the cemetery.
I won't be skipping church next Sunday *wink* ;)
