The Gift of Returning

Thursday afternoon I opened the side door to let a whining Olive cat come inside. I was busy making something to eat when I turned and saw a flash of orange and white. Olive cat is brown. I followed the flash downstairs to see something I never expected to see again: a safe but skinny Moonbeam kitty eating from his food dish raveneously. After nearly 4 weeks of being gone (the first week having nights in the low teens!), he has returned miraculously. The lost has been returned to it's master and I rejoice; what a small glimspe of me returning to Him.

198. Watching my daughters share smile and laughter

202. Thoughtful presents

204. Ruthie's baby love
205. Playful banter

Actually, most of the time sweet Moonbeam won't let me out of his sight. It's like he thinks I abandoned him for 4 weeks!

I'm so happy that Moonbeam Kitty came back. I'd been praying for you and that somehow he would return to you. It's neat to see an answered prayer. I'm close to my kitties as well. My kitty Boots was there before husband and children.

Smiling With You,
