Sunday Pause (Paws): More Important Things

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and get off the merry-go-round.

Life can really feel like a merry-go-round sometimes. I wrote this short poem with that in mind.


Why is it that we have such good intentions
But before we know it life takes over
We get lost in a culture that’s on high speed
It’s hard to live a life that is slower

In our night prayers and our brand new mornings
We feel refreshed and inspired
But the day turns into a balancing act
And at the end we are left so tired

Sometimes something breaks through the whirlwind
And we know we must jump off the merry-go-round
We are reminded that loved ones and relationships
These are the more important things that should be well-found

Some of my loved ones are in the caricature below that we had done many years ago.


Happy times like spending time together and getting a caricature done are great. But then there are the times that aren’t so great but get our attention. Just this past week my mom was hospitalized for the flu that wasn’t getting better, but was getting worse. She is still there. This is one of those things that makes you jump off that merry-go-round and as the last two sentences of my poem say “We are reminded that loved ones and relationships…these are the more important things that should be well-found!”

It would be appreciated if some of you would join Cino & I in praying for her speedy and full recovery. Cino loves her grandma! Thank you.


Happy Sunday!

    Of Course my prayers are with you!🐈😘 I’m so glad she’s in a hospital…so many won’t go and it only gets worse. I hope you and yours are good…but you should know…even the cat’s can pick up the virus. I heard it can make them really sick too.
    But it’s harder for them to get it. Some of these human virus we get can be spread to animals and vice versa. So Be careful. πŸ’žπŸΎπŸˆπŸ™ Prayers going up now.πŸ™ŒπŸ‘ DreaπŸ‘
