Bailey’s invisible fence ran along quite close to the cement steps pictured here. She used to veer off to the left of the steps to avoid getting “buzzed.” When the railing got installed we moved her invisible fence line way over to the right to give her more room – but at first she didn’t believe. We had to coax her and sweet talk her over and over, up and down the steps until finally she was a “convert.” Still, it took guts for her to believe.
The invisible parts of our lives; believing in them, or not. Trust. Fear. Taking those first steps. Avoiding pain. Pain that seems to come from nowhere – an “invisible” fence! How very much this mirrors our emotional experiences of our lives. And yet, still, every day, Life asks us to keep walking up and down steps. To believe we won’t be hurt.
