At the horse show in-gate of a new year…

Here we are again, at the gate of a new year – it’s like entering the show ring, walking up the chute, through the in-gate… and into the unknown – do you feel the butterflies??
I love this quote when I get those butterflies mixed with anticipation as I wonder what the coming year will bring…
I said to the man who stood at the Gate of the Year, “Give me a light that I may tread safely into the unknown.”
He replied, “Go out into the darkness, and put your hand into the hand of God.
That shall be to you better than light, and safer than a known way.”
