So where's the snow?

Muddling through in Austria, God and life, teaching and gardening plus the occasional cow

P1090007

Isaiah 7, v 4, ‘Be careful,keep calm, and don’t be afraid’.

This short sentence leapt out of the page to me when I was about to begin my first job teaching riding here in the Lungau.  Each time I set out on a ride, I would check everything, didn’t rush (as I am prone), was carefull and calm but happy.   Result, in the entire summer I never had one child fall off, and didn’t myself, we had fun in every lesson and I think the horses responded to my quietness in being completely trustworthy.  When I moved on to another stables, this verse didn’t come to me naturally, my nerves after 14 months were on the rise, and it led to me leaving.  I had the occasional kid tumble, but no major accidents. Was I moving out of God’s will or just getting above myself.  I don’t know, but this verse helped me so much!
