Do Not Remember the Sins of My Youth

by Kevin on July 20, 2011

The bronc kicked the side of the trailer three times as Paul went to open the gate. He had to jump out of the way when the horse came barrelin’ out of the trailer and laughed as his new friend tried to kick him as he ran by.

That horse had been a tough one. Just the halter breakin’ had taken weeks and two donkeys. Paul had tied the young colt to a donkey to teach it how to lead. He’d walked out one morning to see the colt leadin’ the donkey.

Their friendship was strained at best. The colt had been able to kick him twice and one extremely rank pitchin’ session had left Paul with two broken ribs. Friends and family had told him to sell the bronc before one of ’em was killed, but Paul just smiled and said he kind of like him.

Ten years later, Paul’s little girl won the county horse show ridin’ that same bronc. When asked about the horse that had been known all over as a notorious bronc, the little girl said, “My daddy said he was just young and needed someone to love on him. I remember every morning, Dad would walk out to ride him and as he was feedin’ he’d say,

Do not remember the sins of my youth
   and my rebellious ways;
according to your love remember me,
   for you, LORD, are good. Psalm 25:7

This blows my mind, but the story “We only make fun of friends” is over a year old and it is the second most read article this month on CCM.
