Just a glimpse of me...

Do you ever feel STUCK? In 2000, I began looking for answers to some tough questions in my life. I'd searched high & low and finally conceded to search the promises found in the Bible. Those promises have sustained & guided me through the loss of a parent, the struggle with anxiety & depression, the loss of a valued relationship and so much more! I've found joy amid the pain. And, I want to share it with you!

Walking the Cat

Today was a perfect day to walk the cat.  The weather for mid-February was not typical -- certainly NOT what I've come to expect here in central Indiana's cornfields.  It's a sunglasses are mandatory type of day!  Mid 50's.  Slightly breezy. But, gloriously sunny.  Yes, it's a perfect day to take your cat out on his leash for a walk! 
The view is better
up on the fence rail!

Life is full of surprises, isn't it? And, many of those surprises are pleasant when we are looking for them.  Who knew that the little yellow kitty whose life we saved from abandonment would turn into such a cuddler? Who knew he'd grow up to be a cat who runs to the door for a walk upon seeing his leash being pulled from the drawer.  

There's no substitute for a nap in the sun!
Winter's been hard on me... and, apparently, the cat too. 

There have probably been way too many afternoon naps in the sun as it streamed in the window from the COLD outside.  Both the cat & I have grown weary.  We've looked for other ways to get our exercise in without braving the winter weather. 

And... we might have rested just a little too much. But, the rest has brought strength.

How refreshing it was to take a quick walk along the patio & deck with the cat today... to no longer be cooped up inside awaiting warmth again. The Psalmist said to the Lord:

"You set the boundaries of the earth, and you made both summer and winter."
Psalm 74:17

Even when I know that winter is not quite over, I am grateful for days & moments that remind me of the "summer" to come.
