"That your faith should not rest on the wisdom of men, but on the power of God."
1 Corinthians 2:5

I'm gonna call this one little squirrel, "Come-on-big-boy." He is always teasing my dog, Major.
"COBB" seems to know when it's time for Major to go out to do his, well, ummm, business. So Cobb and his buddies decide to scamper up and down our trees which go completely around our back yard and into the neighbors. Then Major forgets what he was let out for...sigh.... That squirrel also knows just how low he can go before Major reaches him. Then Cobb sits and stares, or eats another acorn, dropping the shells which makes Major even more excited. I can tell it's the same squirrel because of his face markings.
Now I love squirrels and all, but it's not always convenient for me to chase my dog around right before work, or when I need to leave.
I seem to have Cobbs in my life too, beckoning me to do things other than what I know I need to do. Sometimes throwing just an idea in my head distracts me. It might be as easy as a load of wash that beckons, irritating me. Am I alone?
"O Lord, you have searched me and you know me. You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar. You discern my going out and my lying down; you are familiar with all my ways." Psalm 139:1-3
The Lord knows just what will distract me, yet He waits with watch-care over me, until I realize what I should be doing instead. Then He leads me back onto the way. Thank you, Father.
I was born in cajun country. I now live in Florida with my husband Mike. My daughter Shelly, and Dan her husband, live close. My son David and his wife, Melissa, along with my three grandchildren live in Virginia. I love them all and thank God I have been so blessed.
I wrote tips for Focus on the Family "Teen Phases" magazine and have a short story in the "God Encounters" anthology. I have a story in the book, "Fighting Fear; Winning the War at Home When Your Soldier Leaves for Battle".
I once kissed, danced and swam with dolphins, and falcons have landed on my arm. Love my English Golden Retriever. I'm a sucker for chocolate and salsa.
