yes, and not only did she throw me off...she started kicking the dirt like she was going to charge at me..lol
i flipped up in the air off the horse and landed on my head...then sat there dazed while this horse got ready to come after me...my sister picked me up on a another horse and got me away from her.
then she made me get on another horse...which was probably a good idea or i might have never ridden again...
one other time my foot fell out of the stirrups and i wound up hanging on the side of a horse...there were about 24 riders on that ride and we were cantoring...it took awhile for the word to get up to the leader to stop...i hung on for dear life.
Thanks for commenting on my quote about saints and sinners.
Yes, there is surely "good" in both the mentioned approaches. But like you so perfectly stated, it is what YOU believe is good which is probably best. You are the only person who truly knows if you are doing the right thing. You may do something that millions in society perceive as "wrong", but it if was done with pure and good intentions, is it really wrong? In the same breath I could ask; if you do something that is "right" according to a law or a scripture, but it was done with evil intentions, is it still "right"?
Anyways, this discussion could go on for pages and pages. I think the moral of the story is to do what your heart tells you is the right thing to do. Words can be turned, a mind can be changed, but a heart will never lie to you.
Keep an eye out for the poem "The Hypocrite", which I will post later today or tomorrow. It's based on these exact thoughts and is sure to raise some questions as well.
