I have a feeling I’ll be writing more about our cats Micah and Rachael because they’re such a big part of life at the Stanton household…
I’ve only had Micah for approximately four years, and he already has forgotten that he, too, was once a new cat in the household. Back when he arrived, our dear cat Tiger wanted to welcome him. But, being the nervous type, Micah the newcomer is the cat who hissed and growled (out of fear).
He is reticent to give little Rachael a chance, but is getting more accepting. Dave has referred to me as “the cat whisperer” (person who can help or understand animals), but Micah’s situation just needs patience.
Micah now has reacted to his primal instincts – to defend territory – he did not reason like a person can.
But what about people? Do we forget things when dealing with others? I’m referring to a Bible story where a man was forgiven his large debt but then turned around and did not act gracious to the person who owed him money.
Then, there is the story of the lepers. Only one of them, after being healed, came back to thank Jesus.
I’m just wondering if we forget to be thankful or forgive or give grace like we receive it. I know the leper story always got to me; I vowed to not be like the ones who didn’t come back to say thanks.
And as long as we’re on the subject of thanks…thank you to my readers who are ever-loving and affirming and faithful. You make me smile. 🙂
