It’s a morning routine and he rarely misses a day. We’re not sure when it started or why it continues but it’s a habit now. Every morning he comes to sit with his master.

It always takes effort and struggle hauling himself to the bed (he is too big to jump) where he can just sit beside him. Once there the two commune, one usually in slumber while the other patiently purrs…waiting. Cuddle the cat waits for my dear husband to wake up and reach out with strokes of acknowledgement and appreciation.

Oh that we could be so loyal to God that we make it a priority to quietly wait in his presence for his love and affirmation every morning. The Bible tells us there is a correlation between being satisfied by God’s love in the morning and filling our days with joy and gladness. Could it be that the secret to happiness is that simple?

“Satisfy us in the morning with your unfailing love, that we may sing for joy and be glad all our days.” Psalm 90:14 NIV
