Sing in the Dark

        Well our sermon this morning was on 'Singing in the Darkness--Psalm 77.'   ''I cried out to God for help; I cried out to God to hear me.''  How true this was for me after last night.
       My 14 pound cat, Tiger, sleeps in my bed almost every night.  I like it because she has a keen eye for any bug, cricket or spider on the bed.  At 230am last night, she was walking in the bed checking out the new fall decorations on the headboard.  I was awake but did not forsee what was about to happen.  She came over to me and completely laid her whole body on my good arm.  AGHH.. I can't move and she wouldn't budge at all.  I tried to reach my buzzer but it moved further away with each try.  I broke out into a sweat as I reverted back and forth between panic and prayer.  Remaining calm and diligent prayer are the secrets to success in any stressful situation.  After a 30 minute struggle, my arm was free from the weight of my fat cat.
        Prayer does move mountains and does give you needed strength.  I know that singing His praises in dark times is what we need to do but I'll admit this was a true test for me.


  1. oh, my! How stressful that must have been for you. Being a somewhat claustrophobic person helps me to empathize with you. Thanks for the encouragement to give those times to the Lord.

  2. Wow Angie! Hope that never happens to you again! Praying you sleep well tonight.

    Love you,


  3. I can only imagine what you went thru. This cat picture is adorable. I have a cat that is 19 years old. She knows no limits and bosses us around. I am going to borrow this picture from you and post on FB. Have a great evening. Bonnie

  4. God is always with you and He answers prayers...Dad

  5. Glad you know how to pray and are on a first name basis with the Solver of all Problems. Great analogy!
