Where’s the Pony?

The Choice is Yours


Spring Always Follows Winter


Recently a number of things happened in my life that I felt were out of congruence with my spiritual way of living. My husband had an emergency appendectomy, and the bills were beginning to pile up. Many things were out of kilter and I couldn’t figure out why.   

Then I remembered the story about a little boy who was expecting to receive his birthday present. He was led to a barn, but when he opened the door there was nothing but manure on the floor. The little boy yelled with excitement. He dashed into the barn and began digging through the manure. When he was asked what he was so happy about, he answered “With all this manure there has to be a pony in here someplace!” He knew there was good in store for him.  

Friends and family supported us with their prayers. My husband recovered more quickly than expected; our finances are coming into alignment with our consciousness of abundance, and we see our life together as a blessing.  

Even when things seem to go wrong in life there is a meaning and a purpose behind the circumstances. Ask yourself, “Where’s the pony in this situation?” How do you choose to look at life? Spring always follows winter. Expect a blessing and it will come.  

Today I look for the blessing in my experience. I know that God means everything for good.
