A morning spent with Irish, a Thoroughbred mare from Rainhorse Equine Assisted Services, was a beautiful lesson on the impact of welcome.
Welcome means to gladly receive or accept. Who among us~whether person or horse~doesn't want to be gladly received or accepted? Welcome is a balm for the overlooked, the dismissed, the rejected.
"For the Lord...will take delight in you with gladness...." ~Zephaniah 3:17 (NLT)
