The theme of light within darkness has been popping up all day for me.
My kitty back at home has been missing for weeks.
Wherever you are, precious Coal, it’s been good.
Thanks for showing up when I prayed to God every day that I could have a cat when I was 12 years old. You may have been incredibly annoying at times, and you always found a way to scratch up my arms and face… but you did it in the most strangely loving way. Haha. You were the best kitty.
“They have no more wine,” Mary told Jesus (John 2:3). That’s it. That’s all she said. She didn’t go ballistic. She simply assessed the problem and gave it to Christ …
Next time you face a common calamity, follow Mary’s example: Identify the problem. (You’ll half-solve it.) Present it to Jesus. (He’s happy to help.) Do what he says. (No matter how crazy.)” —Max Lucado
“I’d be crazy not to follow,
follow where you lead.”
It’s one of my favorite things in the world to do.
(Especially when it’s done right… which it is tonight. On the menu: a cheesy Italian tortellini with a meaty mushroom sauce that I made in my slow cooker. Yum!)
You’re looking all new and updated.
Aren’t you cute?
We are often surrounded by too much noise.
Do not forget the quiet peace of silence.
The Lord is calling us back to Himself.
Constantly. Every moment of every day.
Return to solitude for a while.
Escape into the desert.
Stay quiet. Contemplate. Listen.
The voice of eternity echoes in your heart.
