Day 55, February 24

Several Sundays ago, Larry and I were on our way to church shortly before 9 a.m.  The sky was overcast, with a light snow falling continually.  I lamented to my husband about the lack of sunlight, and I looked about for some bit of beauty.

As though God heard my thoughts, a cotton tail rabbit appeared, bounding across the street.  His enthusiasm and exuberance immediately lifted my spirits. Perhaps I am attributing qualities to this rabbit that he did not really possess, but to my beauty-starved eyes, he was an answer to my unspoken prayer.

God, in His infinite wisdom, created a world filled with unexpected glimpses of beauty.  Our town of Loveland, Colorado is especially blessed as we come upon everything from a cotton tail rabbit to small herds of elk and, occasionally, a magnificent eagle.  And I am reminded of His love for all of His creatures.

Joy for today:  smiling over the antics of a cotton tail.


  1. We see bunnies everywhere in our neighborhood with their cute little cotton tails. They do move rather quickly.

  2. Like Pooh says, it's hard to be uncheered by a balloon or, I may add, by a bunny.
