One Brief Moment


Somewhere out on an open plain in the very beginning, there was this meeting between first wild horse and God.

God settled his eyes upon the horse, and felt that what he delivered…was not quiet enough. Without saying much, God spoke and said the horse could roam as far as he wanted….from where the Sun rose…..to where the Sun set. The wild horse stood there, not saying much.

God then decided that he still hadn’t given quiet enough to the wild horse. So without saying much, God spoke and said that he’d bring fresh mountain water down to the plain in the form of rivers, streams and creeks. The wild horse stood there, not saying much.

God then decided that he still hadn’t given quiet enough to the wild horse. So without saying much, God spoke and said he’d bring the cool refreshing rains down occasionally….to cool the wild horse on hot days. The wild horse stood there, not saying much. God then decided that he still hadn’t given quiet enough to the wild horse.

So without saying much, God spoke and said he’d lay out an abundance of grass for the wild horse. The wild horse stood there, not saying much.

God then decided that he still hadn’t given quiet enough to the wild horse. So without saying much, God spoke and said he bring up an occasional breeze and give the wild horse the most fresh air that you could possibly imagine.

The wild horse stood there, and finally spoke. He really hadn’t asked for anything much to start with. He felt kind shamed by all these amazing things that God had generously given. He couldn’t think of anything to give in return.

And God spoke up….that just the image of the wild horse across his wondrous landscape….was enough in return. And the two parted ways….each thankful for what the other had given in return.
