It’s never a good time for a life changing circumstance to explode into your life. Sometimes, your only choice is to contain the mess until there’s time to clean it up.
I never quite see
how You are active
In this world. I only
know when I sit sully
and ask You to come in
& do something on another’s
behalf – it’s as if Your spirit
dances & breathes where no
one else sees. Yes, indeed, I’ll
move the mountains to their
unbelief. To yours, my beloved.
I’ll kiss your cheek with mercy
to start again, to keep the fire
burning because it is Mine to
keep ablaze. The love with
overflow – the smile will grow.
You just watch what I’ll do.
I’m so near,
When younger I thought it my role
Always be in good control
Pain ne’er got from me a whimper
Nor would I ever lose my temper
All that self sacrifice got me
All that caution only bought me
To anonymously dance
Mid public indifference
No one thought me at all wise
More somebody to despise
Certainly nobody who
Anyone would listen to
Then came to me such suffering
As doth a good impatience bring
For those who practise any other
Than consideration for their brother
To past practises treas’nable
At times may seem unreas’nable
But along with it somehow
They listen more respectfully now
Love this list…
- Enough hiding your emotions under 100 blankets.
- Enough lying to yourself and to others.
- Enough being lazy.
- Enough counting on others.
- Enough believing in unicorns and fairies.
- Enough looking back.
- Enough holding anger.
- Enough hopping.
- Enough expecting.
- Enough being tired and sick.
What is on your top 10 enough list?
Well, Mack has been with us almost 48 hours so far – Saturday evening until mid-afternoon Monday now, and he’s doing very well. Saturday evening he was all over the place and exploring and checking things out, and pretty chipper. Sunday he figured out he wasn’t going home, I think, and he kept going to the door all day, and peed about every hour or two. Could be a UTI, and could just as easily be stress, as he has been fine today.
We took Mack for a bath on Sunday, and his itchiness has improved a good bit. He’s now on a very high quality food, and we’ve added some probiotics, pumpkin, and Grizzly Salmon Oil to his food. He has seasonal allergies, and these additives seem to be helping, along with the bath. He has hardly been scratching himself the last day, and seems much more comfortable.
