  1. You forgot he likes to make guest appearances on podcasts πŸ™‚

  2. Michael says:

    Yes, he does…he wants to hog the mic too… πŸ™‚

  3. JoelG says:

    Thank you for the laugh, the hope and the happy tear.

  4. Josh the Baptist says:

    This reminds me of Brennan Manning talking about crawling up in Abba’s lap. Good stuff, Michael.

    And now I’m going to listen to Brennan.

  5. Michael says:

    Thank you, Joel and Josh…

  6. The Dude says:

    Our Lord has so much grace for those of us who have difficult personalities.Maybe you should have Chester checked for worms.

  7. Michael says:

    The Dude,

    I probably should get myself checked at the same time… πŸ™‚

  8. Josh the Baptist says:

    Oddest thing just happened. I went to youtube and brought up the first random Brennan Manning sermon I saw. Within the first ten seconds, he’s telling a story about Medford, Or.

    I can only say I never saw Michael and Brennan in the same room…

    Chester has not yet been regenerated – know them by their fruits – his fruit proves he’s still nothing but an alley cat. Keep working on him. Sounds like you have a lamb and a kid goat. But Chester can still be transformed into a lamb if he finally accepts the love he is being offered. – My application.

  11. Michael says:

    Ms. ODM,

    He’s regenerate…I baptized him. πŸ™‚

  12. Josh the Baptist says:

    Chester needs to know that you love him as he is, not as he should be.

  13. Josh the Baptist says:

    Continuing my Brennan Manning theme πŸ™‚

  14. Michael says:


    I do…even as I scrape the cat food off my foot…
    The Brennan Manning theme is always worth pursuing.

  15. Francisco says:

    Great Friday post Michael πŸ™‚

  16. Michael says:

    Thank you, Francisco!

  17. Paige says:

    Cats will be cats….. Glad you baptized dear Chester…. some of us sinners are hard core set in our sinful ways….. somehow God changes us….

    Remember; Dogs have owners. Cats have staff.

  18. Xenia says:

    mournfully howling the song of his people.<<<

    O, this is perfect.

    Thank you.


  19. Randy says:

    I think that Chester and me might be kin.

  20. Steve Wright says:

    Under Roman law, adopted children had greater and more secure legal protections than begotten children. For God to use that wording to describe us is amazing.

  21. SJ says:

    With as much as he eats, have you had him checked for parasites and worms?

  22. covered says:

    I have a feeling that the application Michael has graciously laid our for us has very little to do with Chester needing to go to the Vet.

  23. SJ says:

    Oh come on covered. I get it, but his cat eats too much πŸ˜‰

  24. covered says:

    My wife says the same thing about me πŸ™‚
