A taste of FAITH, a touch of LAUGHTER.
This is an awesome piece of moving wood sculpture! I enjoyed just watching this play and seeing how all the moving parts worked.
What a work of art! 🙂
In the same way, I have always enjoyed this little Amish piece, a tiny version of the moving horse sculpture, that came with my son, Tallon, when we adopted him. It’s much simpler, of course, but just as enjoyable in my eyes. It makes a very pleasant clackety clack sound via the legs as it rocks
The horse broke somehow when I was away from home and I had to piece it together. I really should fix it properly but I’m showing it to you as is anyway. It reminds me of the big event of my son coming into my life, so I do treasure it.
For those that may not know, My husband and I were able to have one son, though we had been warned about very slim chances of conception. I prayed Hannah’s prayer from 1st Samuel 1, for a child to bring up for the Lord, and God graciously answered that prayer, as He had done for Hannah all those years ago. We were given a boy from my body, my first son, Ken. I did my very best to raise him for the Lord and to “give him to the Lord all the days of his life”. He is grown and has his own family now.
Jim and I wanted another child, so, when news of a 13 month old little boy needing a home came into our lives, we said yes to this wonderful God sent opportunity. That was Tallon, another very special gift from the Lord. He too was answered prayer in our lives. A second blessing.
We always joked that Tallon came with clothes and toys, because in fact he did. The little Amish horse was one of the possessions he had that came with him. I have kept it for him.
I have always appreciated hand made wooden toys and all kinds of creative art, so I loved the video of the moving horse sculpture and the memories that it brought up in the viewing. A little journey into the past.
I hope you enjoy it too!
