Dancing in the cloister…

The young priest and the nuns of the convent watched as the postulants walked through the cloister to the garden for a time of prayer.  As they went into the garden to take their places they walked quietly with hands folded and eyes looking down.  Except for one who went in dancing with hands open, smiling and looking all around her with bright eyes.  The priest looked at Mother Superior with a scowl and asked, “Does she not know the proper way to enter the garden for prayer?”  The wise old nun smiled and said, “Oh, yes, she does Father but she cannot contain her joy when she is to meet with her Lord.”

A note from Teddy…

teddysmile

Hi everyone!

I am all smiles because I am all better! I went to see the lady vet and she did a sonogram and some tests and all is well.  No crystals in my bladder and no blood or infection in my pee. I am going to stay on the special diet but I can have my favorite wet food, too. Jack is happy because he likes the special food, too, and we will share.

Jack went with us to the clinic because it was time for his checkup and rabies shot. He doesn’t mind going to the vet like I do. He gets right out of the crate and into the vet’s arms. Weird! He got his shot and loved on the lady. Double weird! Anyway, he is healthy but gained 1 and 1/4 pounds. Mama says we are all going on diets because we are getting fat.  Her, too.

It was a tiring day for me and Jack so we are planning on a long nap. But before I go to sleep I want to thank all of you peoples for your good thoughts and prayers and advice. It means a lot to me and Mama.

Eccentric lightness…

cat-2949922_640

Many in the small town she calls home laugh at her and some even shun her, thinking she is odd and eccentric in her ways. It doesn’t matter, what they say or think about her that doesn’t concern her, but she is concerned for them. They are so heavily burdened with intolerance and narrow-mindedness they see none of the goodness around them. They could leave the dull darkness where they dwell if they would just open their hearts and step into the wonderment that is in the lightness of joy. Oh, how happy it would make her odd eccentric self to welcome them into the bright and beautiful world she knows and loves.
