This morning as I got ready for the day, I noticed the cat in the middle of the floor. I stopped for a moment, despite my busy-ness, and sat on the bedroom carpet. The cat, Sox, climbed in my lap and relished my attention, purring. We had been away a few days and the kitty just wanted to spend time with me. It struck me that this is how our time with God should be. We just want to be with Him. To relax in His presence and enjoy Him. To be still.
I am an East Coast girl; having grown up near Long Island Sound, I love water. My father taught me to love nature and the outdoors. We would go bird watching or fishing together in the early morning. From there it was a small step to see that all this beauty must have a Creator. In college I discovered that God is real and have been following Him ever since.
