Senior Life

A Moment in Time

Waking when the skies are still dark, steals my energy. My body clock, as well as my cat Templeton’s, doesn’t have the ability to change easily. Oh, how I long for warm and sunny days where I can enjoy being outdoors. I miss chatting with neighbors and too often feel isolated from the world.

While I keep my mind occupied most hours of the day, I know how easily I could slip into a pity party. I miss human contact, conversation, and the reassurance of love. Satan is tapping into my weakness and planting thoughts I need to destroy.

I see the sun lighting the treetops in the distance bringing hope and reminding me of God’s promises. A new day is here. I am grateful. Yet I need a moment to let the tears escape. To find rest and comfort in the Lord.
