whisper it to thy saddle-bow

I wanted to share this video I saw on facebook today.  It's so cute!



I have a devotional book by Amy Carmichael that I read every day.  It's called Edges of His Ways.  There's a paragraph or two for each day, or sometimes just a poem that she wrote.  I loved the poem for October 11th, and wanted to share it.

Have I a fear that Thou dost know?
Fear of weakness, fear of failing
(Though Thy power is all-prevailing)
Or a haunting fear of bringing
Care to others?

“Share it not with a weakling
Whisper it to thy saddle-bow,
And ride forth singing.”

Many fears can murmur low:
Fear of ills the future holdeth
(Though, indeed, Thy grace upholdeth),
Dulling fear and fear sharp stinging,
Fear that tortures.

“Share it not with a weakling
Whisper it to thy saddle-bow,
And ride forth singing.”
-- Amy Carmichael

And finally, I found this song by Building 429 the other day, and wanted to share it too.
