    The Dude,

    Thanks for reading and giving the “amen” this morning.
    We have lots of folks awaiting rescue…and comfort.

    i got hit with a life altering chronic disease diagnosis almost 3 years ago and I feel like I’m still clawing to hang on. So grateful He’s still holding me!

  4. Michael says:

    He won’t let go, Pam…praying for both rescue and comfort for you.

  5. Paige says:

    Absolutely. Amen. A beautiful devotional thought for today….The Real Gospel Message.

    I am guessing that you didn’t start beating Ms Kitty shortly after rescuing her. 😀

  6. Michael says:

    Paige,

    Nope…Christ followers never beat their pets or their kids…because He doesn’t either.
    My He rescue us from those who don’t get that…

  7. Paige says:

    Exactly….. it is beyond tragic that so much ‘preaching’ is just that: beating the rescued for not being good enough or so stupid to have been out in the rain, etc…. rather than pointing to The Rescuer, who is blessed forever and ever. Amen.

  8. Michael says:

    Amen, my friend…

    Nice images.

    Amen, Paige. I have a father and brother who wouldn’t even get up to help with me unless I first convinced them that whatever I did wasn’t in ANY way my fault. Otherwise, I deserved it and they were not going to help.
    I am so glad God is not that way.
    Thank you Michael for you cat stories. I can relate as a fellow cat daddy.

    What a great Miss Kitty episode, Michael. What struck me, was that instead of the rescuer disabusing the rescued, the rescued caused the rescuer some pain. That is such a picture of our Jesus, taking the pain for rescuing us. Thank you, Michael, for illustrating that so well. These are great devotionals!

    I love these cat stories.
    I have one that hates to be held, despises being touched, yet is always 4 feet away wherever I am.
    She squints her eyes when she is near and we talk to her, and we came to find out through the internet that this is her way of affection and happiness around us.
    It has been hard to accept this form of affection from her as we are so used to animals that love to be cuddled.

    We have had to accept that it is on her terms not ours.
    Definitely than our beloved now deceased dog who loved human touch.

    That cat was holding on to her security.
    She knows where her security is.
    Very touching.

    The God of all comfort picks us up and puts us on the right path. Job’s friends don’t know the way. Follow them and you’ll all fall into the pit.

    Being owned by seven cats makes it all the more relevant when i read about miss Kitty’s antics.

    Of course there is also some back story to my four dogs.

    How awesome is your insightfulness.

    The Holy Spirit speaks through many languages and through many high lights of seemingly ordinary circumstances.

    Your gift in the Lord far surpasses my own observations of my animal family.

    I can’t imagine how rich it would be if you were to have an animal family like mine…LOL
