THE SECRET OF SEABISCUIT

In 1938, a year of monumental turmoil, the number one newsmaker was not Franklin Roosevelt or Adolf Hitler, in fact it wasn't even a person. It was an undersized, crook-legged racehorse owned by a bicycle repairman turned automobile magnate and trained by a virtually mute mustang breaker and ridden by a half-blind failed prizefighter. The horse's name was Seabiscuit. Seabiscuit would ultimately stun the world of horseracing by winning when he wasn't supposed to. The reason: A trainer and jockey who worked with a horse and trained him to reach beyond his own capacity.

The words of the Lord are these: "I have not come to destroy but rather to fulfill."

(From a sermon by Philip Harrelson, Bits, Bridles, and Wild Horses, 5/14/2012)
