Living Now

100_1591

Animals are always therapeutic to watch.  They live life, unconcerned about what may happen tomorrow,  not mulling over what happened last week…mostly just thinking about now.  About food now, about a soft place to lay, about enjoying their walk.  Take these sheep for instance; they are eating, seemingly unaware of the impending cliff dropoff in front of them by only a few feet.  Yet amazingly they never got even close to falling off the whole time we were there.  Their little feet instinctively seemed to know where to walk.

I need to be a sheep.  Or my dog.  Just trusting, enjoying the now, and walking by the Light of God that guides me away from cliffs.  Blessings, Lisa

  1. Interesting! I noticed the cliff before reading your commentary and thought the same thing. However, on a closer look, I also noticed that the grass was grazed right up to the cliff’s edge. My conclusion is that there must be some very, very, careful sheep out there, or maybe some that just like living on the edge.

    • Good observation! Those crazy, confident sheep would eat right up to the edge; very nimble on those small feet. You’ve probably seen the picture we have of the sheep climbing up the steep side of Carrantuohill, the highest mt in Ireland. They made it look easy, and seemed to know just where to put their feet in between the rocks. 🙂

      • They’re on WordPress Standard Time…WST….haha 🙂
        I don’t think I have my clock on the account set correctly.

I welcome your thoughts...
