    you’ve done it again… great parallels to our fallen nature and our relationship with God
    but… 🙂

    Chester reminds me more of that person who blames God for everything, thinks that a loving God would never do such things as allow diseases and restrictions etc… refuses to acknowledge that God, the creator and sustainer of the whole universe, loved him enough to die to pay his sin debt. The person who is going to try to justify himself on judgment day because “i did the best i could, God… but You, God? not so much”
    and God will grieve and there’s the difference…

    my nemesis, my late husband’s 19 year old cat is dying… the cat who pushed a heavy carton of family heirloom china off of the garage shelf, smashing it to bits, the cat who completely destroyed a nice chair that i’d promised to my grandson, the cat, who i can hardly stand to live with, is now dying and i feel badly for the cat…
    and my cat loving daughter will grieve terribly, but i won’t grieve, well maybe a bit, but not much… i am not much like God, i guess

    Thank you, Em. 🙂

    Chester is just slow in sanctification…like me.

    Well, Michael, MLD would tell you (I think) that it doesn’t matter as we are all no d*** good. – just trying to follow the rules until our glorification … at least I think that’s what
    he’d say… dunno ?
    Me, however, I think you are processing – definitely an overcomer… as are we all ?

    Ahahahahha Awesome. The Litterbox Diaries…. gotta love Chester….

    He’s getting desperate…. you might look into a Chinese remedy called Free and Easy Wanderer…. it’s a calming tonic….tho not easy to give. (I am trying it on Rocky… crushing a quarter pill, since he’s only 9lbs..Chester could tolerate a half or more)… check it out…

    love ya. Love the Gospel According to Chester….

    I was thinking of pot infused cat food, but I’ll try that first… 🙂

  7. Martin Luther's Disciple says:

    Em, I think we are damn good … in Christ. But just don’t try telling God “I did my best and I hope you make up the rest”. One way ticket to hell with that one.

    I’m glad feelings lie…..thanks again Michael for another great article that reminds us that we are loved.

  9. John 20:29 says:

    MLD… #7 … in Christ indeed…. I do tell God things, however… might as well as He already knows… I call it confession… ?
    Now on judgement day? Well, too late then to backpeddle

    “Secure in Christ, my risen Lord
    Secure in Christ, for by His Word
    Before I was, He ransomed me
    And saved me there in Calvary
    …… “

    Chester’s not an indoor only cat right? I think I remember stories with your cats being outside. Don’t want to offend anyone with indoor cats but every cat I’ve ever known that was indoor-only was “a bit off”. Chester’s a cute cat, but I ain’t gonna lie: Looking at that picture, it looks like he’s plotting what to do to you next. lol Joking aside, I’ll be praying for Chester because it’s no good if he’s keeping you up and affecting your health etc.

    Michael…. the pot might work. hahahha Stoner kitty…
    Actually, there is a cool product from Canna-Pet of feline CBD, no thc in it… we are giving those capsules to our kitty Bella who is recovering from cancer surgery.

    The Free and Easy Wanderer is a readily available inexpensive Chinese herbal… the tablets are pretty big and dry. I have a pill crusher, so I quarter, then crush the pill, mix a tiny amount of plain yogurt into it and draw it up into a syringe and give it to my monster Rocky.. It does help… but it’s annoying to have to give him a ‘med’ twice a day.

    Our old cat loves vanilla ice cream, could the pill be crushed and hidden in a dollop?
