HIS ANSWER WAS 25 FEET AWAY

XOXOXOXO...AMY...XOXOXOXO
ALWAYS IN OUR HEARTS AND MIND




AS  MOST  OF  YOU  KNOW  MY  FAMILY  ARE

ANIMAL  LOVERS.   WE  LOVE  CATS,  HAVING  3  CATS

OF  OUR  OWN  THAT  LIVE  INSIDE.  WE  HAVE  2

SPECIAL  CATS  WE  HAVE  ADOPTED  THAT  LIVE  OUTSIDE...

HOBO  AND  MISS  GREY.  THEY  ARE  NOT  CITIFIED  AND

HAVE  NOT  BEEN  TO  ETIQUETTE  SCHOOL,  SO  THEY  LIVE

OUTSIDE.  MY  MR.  SIMPLY  BUILT  THEM  A  CAT  HOUSE

TO  GO  NIGHT...NIGHT  IN.  THEY  WILL  SHARE  THEIR  FOOD

WITH  OTHER  GANG  MEMBERS  SUCH  AS  GRANDDADDY,

BAD  EYES,  AUTUMN,  FLUFFY  AUTUMN,  THE  MEAN  ONE,

STUBBS,  LITTLE  STUBBS,  AND  WELL...YOU  GET  THE  IDEA.

BUT  THEY  WON'T  SHARE  THEIR  HOUSE.


THE  OTHER  DAY  WE  LOOKED  OUT  INTO  THE  BACKYARD

AND  SAW  WHAT  LOOKED  LIKE  2  LITTLE  YELLOW  SQUASH

LAYING  ON  TOP  OF  ONE  ANOTHER.


UPON  INVESTIGATION  IT  WAS  2  LITTLE  KITTENS

THAT  RAN  LIKE  A  STREAK  OF  LIGHTENING  WHEN

WE  APPROACHED  THEM. 


LATER  WE  LOOKED  OUT  ON  THIS  DRIZZLY  DAY

AND  THEY  WERE  LAYING  IN  THE  YARD  SHIVERING,

LOOKING  AT  THE  BACK  PORCH  WHERE  THE  DRY  CAT 

FOOD  WAS  IN  A  BOWL.


THEY  WERE  SO  INTENT  ON  WAITING  FOR  THE  RIGHT

MOMENT  TO  GRAB  SOME  FOOD,  THEY  FAILED  TO  NOTICE

AT  LESS  THAN  25  FEET  AWAY,  MY  HUSBAND  HAD  MADE 

THE  TWO  KITTIES  A  HOUSE,  WHERE  THEY  COULD  CUDDLE

AND  BE  WARM  AND  TOASTY  AND  IT  HAD A  FOOD DISH,

WHERE  THEIR  BELLIES  WOULD  BE  FULL.





THE  LORD  MINISTERED  TO  ME  THROUGH  THESE  2

PRECIOUS  CATS.   HOW  MANY  TIMES  DO  WE  FIXATE  ON 

WHAT  THE  PROBLEM  IS...SICKNESS,  UNPAID  BILLS,

NEED  RENT,    TUITION,  A  TOOTH  FIXED....ALL  THESE  THINGS

THAT  SO  MANY  OF  US  FIND  SO  VERY  DIFFICULT  TO  DEAL

WITH  BECAUSE  OF  UNEMPLOYMENT  AND  NO  MONEY.

IT  WAS  SUCH  AN  EYE  OPENER  TO  ME  TO  SEE  THESE

KITTIES,  KEEP  THEIR  EYE  ON  THE  PROBLEM  WHEN

EVERYTHING  THEY  NEEDED  WAS  LESS  THAN  25  FEET  AWAY.

IT  MADE  ME  WONDER  HOW  MANY  BLESSINGS  I  ACTUALLY

TRIPPED  ON  AND  WALKED  ON  COMPLAINING  BECAUSE  I

NEEDED  A  MIRACLE.


FAITH  IS  ACTION.   IT  PLEASES  GOD  WHEN  WE  TRUST

HIM  AND  LOOK  TO  HIM  AND  THE  HOLY  SPIRIT  FOR

GUIDANCE.


HIS  HOLY  WORD  SAYS:

MY  GOD  SHALL  SUPPLY  ALL,  ALL,  MY  NEEDS  ACCORDING

TO  HIS  RICHES  IN  GLORY.


FAITH   IS  NOT

BELIEVING  THAT

GOD  CAN-----

IT  IS  IN  KNOWING

THAT  HE  WILL!!!!!!!!





HAPPY  BIRTHDAY

WENDY.......

YOU'RE  THE  GREATEST.

STOP  BY  AND  WISH

WENDY  A  HAPPY

BIRTHDAY.


HAPPY  BELATED

BIRTHDAY  TO

PEGGY,  AKA

QUEENMOTHERMAWMA.

SHE  IS  A  PRECIOUS 

LADY.


DEEDEE-YOU'RE THE  GREATEST.

THIS  PRECIOUS  LADY  WON

THE  CONTEST  FOR  THE  MOST

ORIGINAL, BEAUTIFUL  ATC

HOLDER.

DEEDEE,  KNOWING  THAT  I

WAS  JUST  GETTING  BACK  INTO

ARTS....MAILED  ME  THE  GIVE

AWAY  "SHE  WON"  PLUS  SHE

ADDED  MANY  THINGS  THAT

I  HAVE  ALREADY  USED  ON

OTHER  PROJECTS.  IF  ANY  OF

YOU  ARE  LOOKING  FOR  A

CREATIVE  BUT  POOR  GIRL  TO

SHARE  YOUR  RIBBONS,  PAPERS,

AND  EMBELLISHMENTS WITH...I

WOULD  CHERISH  ANYTHING.

PLEASE  VISIT  DEEDEE...SHE  IS

ONE  OF  THE  MOST  CREATIVE,

AND GENEROUS 

PEOPLE  I  KNOW.








AND  KEEP  YOU  UNTIL  WE  BLOG  AGAIN.

Debbie, that is such a wonderful story! And it is SO true. It reminds me of a Christmas story my uncle used to read to us each year about birds and a barn. They refused to go into the warm barn, and the farmer thought they would freeze, thinking at last, "If only I were a bird and could tell them and save them!" Of course, the reference was to Christ becoming a man to save us.

Hope that all is well in your world and that you will be having a Happy Thanksgiving next week...

XO,

Sheila :-)

Prayers for all those in need.
Debbie, your kitty story has so touched my heart, you are right in everything you said. Sometimes we just need to stand back and take notice....Char

Thank you for the prayer list. It helps all of us to stop a moment and offer each person up in prayer.

Your husband is a sweetie - give him an extra hug for helping out the little kitties. We have three cats also - all rescued by my daughter.

Sue said...

Debbie, I needed to read this tonight, I can't tell you how much your thoughts have blessed me. How many times have I missed that blessing when it was just a few feet away, because I was so focused on the problems that I didn't notice.

And what a softie your dh is for fixing them the house.
Thank you for the uplift.
Hugs,
Sue

Dear Debbie, Thank you so much for visiting my blog and leaving such a wonderful message. I do love nursing, but the hospital scene just is not for me anymore!!! I am thinking of working casually in a small nursing home in the country. Slower pace and quiet surroundings.
My answer was 25 feet away!!!
Take care my new firend. I love your blog.
God Bless and warm hugs, Laura
