As I type this, one of my cats is licking my fingers. She apparently thinks petting her is more important than writing. (She is so soft that is hard to resist her advances!) The kitties have been by my side ever since I got home from work; they are very happy mommy is home after being gone for the weekend. I happen to have taken a nap today with all three kitties and my husband. I woke up in my husbands arms with one cat on my feet, one cat next to my head, and one cat draped across our bodies. It was glorious. In between my mismatched sheets, I felt the love of my husband and God’s grace as well as the warmth of gentle purring….Then….the phone rang. Reality on line one. The magic was broken. Womp Womp.
Yet, I still managed to soak in the moment while it lasted. I didn’t wake up and immediately grab my phone to check Facebook. I lingered and I felt peace. It made me realize how easily we can take the little moments for granted. Take a moment, soak them in, let the cat purr and be at peace.
A prayer for those moments:
Thank you for all that you have bestowed upon me. I know that many times I let the noise of the world outweigh the noise of my life. Thank you for allowing me these moments when I can truly focus on what is important in this world. You truly are an awesome God.
