resting, walking, believing

Posted by Picasa

leo took this pic of me and "our boy" the other day ... and no, this isn't staged ... this is actually the way i read my bible in the mornings ... with a purring cat cuddled up to me, looking as if he were reading along ... he is the sweetest of companions!

i also wanted to share a blog that Debra from As I See It Now, recommended ... it's called The Sojourner's journey ... i checked it out and i think there are some interesting posts geared for this Christmas season we have embarked on ...

and i was surprised at my own post from a year ago - click here ... it seems that the Lord was starting to prepare my heart for the sale of our home ... it made me feel cherished by my Heavenly Father, who knows all things and has a plan for each of us ...

"Cause me to hear Your lovingkindness in the morning, for in You do I trust; cause me to know the way in which I should walk, for I lift up my soul to You." Psalm 32:8

Nice picture Leo... yeah I checked out them sites, both are good reads. Just wait and see about your new place... I would be excited if I were you guys.

We have a cat that does that, too. Anytime someone sits on the couch, she hops right up and purrs away.

osray ... leo says "thanks" ... :o) ... and we are getting a wee bit excited ... so far it seems like it is going to go through ... yikes! wanna come help pack????? *chuckle*

fred ... our cat is like a faithful old dog, he only cuddles with leo and me ... he is a 16 pound bruiser, though runs and hides if anyone new happens to walk through the door - especially if they are under 4 feet!

a cuddly purring kitty would make devotions delightful!
glad leo caught the shot!

tina ... :o) ... we've had our old bruiser for 12 years now ... and he has the sweetest disposition - when leo is really sore he will come lay right on top of him, touching his cheek as if to say "i feel it too" ...

Pets can be such company and such comfort! Cute photo there!

Just got home from 4 1/2 days taking care of grandsons and sons..and I understand the dogs were bereft while I was gone, poor things.

Elizabeth ... you probably catered to the dogs as well as the men ... :) ... and the dogs would be ever grateful and not forget!!! our kitty is like a dog ... though of course with more independence! (hugs)

yep...one reason I love dogs so...they are incredibly loyal. Did you know that their name in Hebrew comes from the word in Hebrew for love? Something said there...in my opinion, dogs were created for man...not some relative of a wolf....but I cannot prove that...I just love dogs!
