“He [God] converted sea to dry land; travelers crossed the river on foot. Now isn’t that cause for song?” Psalm 66.6
Spending time with cats that continue to be in quarantine presents several problems. First, there is the space factor, not much room in the cattery. Second, how does one reacquaint with a cat knowing that you are leaving in minutes? You know it, I am sure Mr. Minx, and Ms. Taisho knows. Third, do cats actually remember us?
The family continues to be creative with the limited space. There is a pleasant give and take, people shifting and moving so everyone gets a chance to sit for a few minutes, and there is a pleasant banter to help build bridges and pass the time. The time factor is more difficult; again, the family overcomes. Their attitude is to make the best you can of things, life will take care of itself. The positive energy expressed, for the most past, take cares of the bumps, barring a minor scratch or two!
Memory is the big unknown. Do cats actually remember? If so, are they angry because of the six months apart? If not, what should we do?
David discovered something special. David discovered that moving forward in life does not relate to what he did but in remembering who God is and what God does. David understood that the knowledge of God’s consistent behavior will drive the future and how we should relate to it.
God says that his primary purpose is to convey how much he loves us. God says he has made provisions to address any shortfall or weakness we might have. God promises that he accepts us totally just as we are. God promises that we can get the most out of life by being in relationship with him.
There are mountains of evidence. Even in my life, God continues to overwhelm me with his acts! Question is, do we want to remember! David discovered that letting God do everything freed him to spend time worshiping. Remember, for us it is party time!
