I don’t like going through open doors and I especially dislike elevator doors. My mom waits for me to “go through” as she holds the door open for us. I look back and with all my might try to convince her with my pleading eyes that she should go first. She knows me well. Looking straight at me she commands “Shadow, Go through.” So I just “do it,” and all is well.
There are things I just don’t like going through. Things I don’t like seeing my mom go through – like the struggles and pain she goes through every day. I don’t like to see homeless dogs or homeless people go through the heartaches of life. I don’t like to see anyone hurt – not even Murphy, the cat. My mom told me the key is focus ahead and keep putting one paw in front of the other and keep “going through.”
Are you facing something that you don’t think you will be able to go through? Life obstacles are overwhelming at times. Though I go through the valley of the shadow of death I shall fear no evil for Thou O Lord are with me. Shadows are harmless. Keep putting one paw in front of the other. You can “keep going through!”
