    Oh, this is just beautiful. Made me laugh (second paragraph).

    This: There is no greater joy than finding light in the darkness…except for sharing it with someone else who has also been waiting in the dark.

    Touched my heart.
    Thank you, as always. Give Miss Kitty a snuggle from me…. a confirmed cat slave.

    Paige already quoted it, but I’m doing it again:

    “There is no greater joy than finding light in the darkness…except for sharing it with someone else who has also been waiting in the dark.”

    Man. That’s good.

    When we are out in the yard with the dog and he barks at us, that means he wants attention and wants to play.

    When we are out in front of the house and the dog is in the yard and sees us and barks at us, that means he wants attention and wants to play.

    When we are in the house and on the floor and the dog comes up and starts climbing on us, that means he wants attention and wants to play.

    When we are sitting on the couch minding our own business and the dog incessantly barks at us, that means he wants attention and wants to play.

    When a visitor comes in the house and the dog jumps up at them and barks at them, that means he wants attention and wants to play.

    If there is ever food involved in any of these or other scenarios and the dog barks at us, that means he wants our food.

    …………I think I missed the application on this story. 🙂

    Oh, and for Josh, I forgot to add – When I’m sitting in my underwear in my beanbag chair in the basement of my parents house and the dog barks at me, he wants me to do some blogging.

    Haha!

    Absolutely incredible!

    It’s got to be a gift from God.

    You have blessed us once again, taking us into the unobserved realms of deeper reality in what would have passed by the bulk of us as mundane and unrealized blessing.

    I could totally relate, having rescued seven cats who all own me, and several dogs.

    Each and everyone of them has their special relationship to me and how they interact with me.

    Even as I sit here and type this, “Maggie” the miniature cattle dog, one of the twins, has gently stepped up into my lap while looking me in the eye to see if it is ok to sit down.

    She now is sitting in my lap to spend some quality time with “Dad.”

    Anyone who has a pet can relate to the feeling of warmth that is passing between us as we both enjoy the moment together.

    All of the pets respect each other’s “quality time with “Dad.”

    Little Bill, the rescued Shitzu, is sitting on the floor next to us patiently awaiting his turn at the lap.

    While Maggie’s twin, Paisley is sitting on the foot rest v.icariously enjoying Maggies moment.

    Outside the window Miss Susie chicken is pecking away at unseen delights from the ground.

    I enjoy greatly my God created family of animals.

    It is such a blessing to read the illumination of these pet moments.

    Ahh…Elseybell Sugar kitty just jumped up and curled up next to Maggie to share the moment with us.

    What a wonderful life we all have together!

    Thanks for the kind words, everyone. 🙂

    Amidst what seemed like the constant cold and darkness of winter, she was still looking for a little light.

    When the light came, though small and slight, she reveled in it.
    ———————————————————————————–
    What a wonderful illustration of times in our lives that seem full of darkness. I noted Miss Kitty had to look for that one spot in the light. It wasn’t readily seen and could easily have been missed, leaving the poor kitty to believe that the light had completely forsaken her. I fall into that temptation more times than I’d like to admit. Seeing only the darkness and not looking for the light, however small, that can be hidden in the darkness. Thanks for the reminder this morning.

  11. Michael says:

    Cash,

    That was my application as well…

  12. AA says:

    Thank you for sharing the light this morning, all I have shared it with have been encouraged.

  13. Michael says:

    AA,

    Thank you…that means much to me.

    Just to let you know Michael, the picture link I posted at 8:22 this morning has gotten 30 views thus far.

    You have a lot of readers!

    Usually it would have been just my two loyal readers who would have viewed it at my blog.
