A little Poem

I looked up at your stars tonight, as I so often do,
To see them sparkling oh so bright amidst the winter gloom.
I've claimed one for my own dear Lord, I hope that you don't mind,
It gives me comfort, joy and peace to dwell on the sublime.
I pray that each day I may be a picture of your love,
So others will see Jesus and want to dwell above.
Thank you, Lord, for all the blessings you have given me,
And may others who may read this want to be as close to thee.  Mimi

Cabin Fever

 Had to miss fellowship at our church again yesterday because of sickness.  I'm beginning to get a little weary, because, for one, this is the second time I've been sick in one month.  And secondly, we continue to get more snow at least twice a week.  Not a whole lot, but it's so bitterly cold, it makes it very difficult to get out.  Thus, the "cabin fever".  But I do try to find something beautiful in each day and a couple of days ago, I saw these ---little bird tracks at the entrance to our back mud room.  Knowing they were either seeking food or shelter made me thankful we were there for them:)

Furry Visitor

Good morning! It's Monday, and I got up and found this little furry guy at the bottom of my bird feeder. Some think of them as pests, but you have to admit they're pretty cute! He was enjoying his breakfast as I was mine. Stood out in the cold for quite a while trying to get a pic of our gorgeous Cardinal.....but he's still a little skiddish. I keep referring to "he's" because the males, of course, usually have more and brighter colors.....

The REAL "boss" of our family :) Meet Leon

Meet "Leon"! He is the second all white cat we have had. Our first one was named "Princess". She lived to be about 18 in people years, which is pretty old I guess for a cat. Anyhow, I knew her days were going to be short and was already grieving over her.
My husband had gone to Christmas party our church was having (I was sick and couldn't go) and when he came home, he had a little shoe box which he opened and this cute little 4-6 wk. old kitten raised it's little head out of the box. He was so hungry and had a big belly so we knew he had worms. We were SURE he was a girl, so we named her "Noel" when we got to the vet we found out otherwise! So, we just reversed the name and Leon had arrived!
What a joy pets are. I am confident that the Lord places these little bundles of joy in our lives as sweet special companions to snuggle up to......tell our innermost thoughts to..........You know, pets love unconditionally, just like the Lord :) I'll get more pics of him on here soon! Mimi
