When Everything Slows Down

Watching a kitten nurse is a little like watching fish swim in a fish tank, a fire flicker in the dark, or a sun set over the lake.

Everything slows down.

One's heart. One's breath. One's thoughts.

There are still faint signs of life.

The flutter of a fin. The gentle flip of tail. The motion of heat. The sizzle of engulfment. The steady breathing of life. The faint tremble of an infant chin. The twitch of momma's ear.

But the stillness reminds you that God is looking over your shoulder.
