Harley

So it has been... About... forever. Yeah. Sorry 'bout that. Would love so say I've been madly busy, but alas, that is not the case. So I don't have much time to write but figured I'd better drop by and atleast say 'hi'.

So. Hi. =]

Got our new hand in, CJ. Yeah....

Uh. Baby kittie! In short, we have a 2 week old baby kitty whose Mama abandoned him {thus the death of his poor little sister} and now he is in my care. Bless his heart. I bottle feed him about 5 or 6 times a day, Mama gets up once at night to feed him, although the past 2 nights he has been sleeping all the way through. Yay! He is solid black and purrs insanely, therefore I have named him Harley. =D

Harley has these big adorable eyes that bring tears to your own because when he is nursing on that bottle, he is just looking up at you and all you see in those big pools of blue is absolute.... trust. That's it. It's like, "My mama left me and now the only way I can survive is if you take care of me. I trust you." It's the most heart breaking thing. I swear even if you don't like cats, you just look into this baby's eyes and I swear you can see God's pure love. I don't know how, but that is what I see. And just half an hour ago I was looking into those blue eyes and thinking, "If only I could learn to trust God like this kitten trusts me."

He was hungry. He called out. I came, took him into my arms, and fed him and loved him.

We have been left and abandoned by this world and it's material things. We are hungry for what only God can give. So we just call out to Him; and He comes and takes us into His loving arms, and feeds us His word and pours unconditional love into our hearts.

Whenever Harley needs a feeding, he just cries out and I come right away to feed him, no matter what I'm doing, I leave it to feed the little guy.

No matter what else is going on the world, nothing is ever too important for God to pay attention to us, and give us exactly what we need; His word and His truth, when we call out to Him for it.

If only I could be just a little more like Harley.


"To the Lord I cry aloud, and He answers me from His holy hill."
