Standing Tall







I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us. Rom. 8:18

Just a quick note about the picture. This pony was abandoned by her owners after Hurricane Katrina hit Louisiana. She was taken to a farm that was being used as an Animal Shelter, but unfortunately once there was attacked by a dog and nearly died. Normally euthanasia would have been the most compassionate alternative, but Molly's intelligence and her strong will to live was undeniable. The doctor was so moved that he agreed operate on her to try and save her life. Amazingly she fully recovered and was later fitted with a permanent prosthesis. Now, wherever Molly goes her story inspires hope and courage, and she always leaves all who meet her with a smile.
This story and picture was taken from The Cancer Crusade. Thanks Cathy for allowing me to share this.

Seems like I've been drawn to animal illustrations these last to WFW's!! Thanks for stopping by today. Join us over at The 160 Acre Woods for more WFW.

Susan, that is just amazing... and seems so natural somehow. Why haven't we seen more prosthetics on animals? (Too expensive, perhaps.)

Thanks for sharing this story and for the verse that goes with it. I really needed that one today!!!

Hugs.
