    Sounds like Chester has learned to be a dog. 🙂

    He acts like one…which is also annoying. 🙂

    Oh Chester! What if he’s always that joyful and content? Oh the horror! ?

    Miss Kitty and I may move in the middle of the night if this continues… 🙂

    Yes it does happen to all of us. That’s why we have to be reminded to rejoice in the Lord always. if not we become hardened to all the great things God has done for us. We forget where He took us from. Just like Chester. Or maybe it’s something different. Perhaps Chester is basking in the love that’s been shown to him and he feels secure in that love. Whichever it is, it’s another great picture of a true relationship with God. Thanks for another great one, Michael.

    Thank you, Cash!

    for some reason this reminds me of the scripture that tells us to keep praying 🙂
    dunno why …?…

    Amen. Wonderful truth! Happy for all and I quite sure that Chester will remember normal cattitude before long….

    “Normal cattitude” – I like that! 🙂

    Michael, if you move in the middle of the night, Chester may lose faith in the permanence of the newfound love and acceptance – don’t do it. 😉

    I find myself echoing your sentiments while I am at work – there are several employees who are “company people”, and feel it their duty to remind the rest of us poor sods just how lucky we are to be included in such an amazing, fun workplace….. while I just go back to the drudgery and count the minutes. But I realize that’s not the same thing, as Chester actually has good reason to be basking in joy.

    You’ve done well, Michael. Thanks for sharing these stories.

    “The Gospel according to Chester” ?

  10. Michael says:


    Thanks…my guess is that that these will find their way into another book,but I will hesitate to call it “Gospel”. 🙂

    I hope that Chester never forgets. There are some, Michael, who never totally forget their past miseries and who have great joy because they are not experiencing them anymore. Chester suffered much. He loves much. I hope he never forgets.
