Life can get us down sometimes; we get sad, depressed, tired, lonely, in pain, and the thought that we cannot tolerate another bad news story or take another step on the road of life sometimes leaves us feeling totally helpless. When it happens to me I think of this picture and see myself as the lamb around His neck. Happy Monday.
It is said a picture speaks louder than words.
Have you ever been so tired that you thought you could sleep anywhere, even in a tree? I know someone with insomnia who said this to me once, and when I spotted today’s picture on Pinterest it immediately caught my attention. It looks like this guy was just hanging around when he got tired and decided to have a nap. Sweet dreams.
I have a best friend who lives in heaven. Her favorite animal on earth was the pig and so today I am remembering her with this picture that came to me from Pinterest. I took some time out to do a little research about this animal which sometimes gets only derogatory comments.
Pigs have excellent memories. Studies have shown that pigs can remember where food is stored and places where they have found food before. They can also remember directions and can find their way home from great distances. Pigs can recognize and remember humans and up to 30 other pigs.
In the Chinese zodiac, the pig represents fortune, honesty and happiness. How appropriate for this honest, happy animal that is smart, lovable and forgiving.
I saw this picture the other day and it reminded me of Matthew 4:19…“Come, follow me,” Jesus said…and I did.
It also reminded me of the movie, The Sister Act and the wonderful way it portrayed the song, “I Will Follow Him”. Enjoy.
I know, I know…I talk too much about my church. But look at this…she’s just passed two-hundred years old and prettier than ever. It is not only my place of worship but my sanctuary, my home away from home, (not counting Heaven) and where much of my life happens. May your day be picture perfect. Happy Saturday.
This picture always reminds me of Bette Midler’s 1990 recording of God is Watching Us:
From a distance the world looks blue and green
And the snow capped mountains white
From a distance the ocean meets the stream
And the eagle takes to flight
God is watching us
God is watching us
God is watching us from a distance
