So I have been “blogging” away (in my mind) and thought I would share some of my musings. This is a stretch so hang with me. It is about kittens, Jesus, and Christmas all in one.
We have two new kittens who are now about four months old. They are Dante and Leo. I just enjoy them so much. They wrestle. They curl up together. They grab at us from under the bed. But mostly they look for us for snuggles.
Did you catch that? They look for us…As soon as either one of them, see either one of us, they jump up on us and immediately begin purring and try to get as close up to us as they can.
One day , I was enjoying Leo stretch out on my lap. His little orange face was full of bliss. He was warm, relaxed and his eyes were closed tight as he emitted this lazy purr of contentment.
“This is what it’s like with us,” I heard the Lord say.
“Really?” I asked in disbelief.
“I enjoy it when you enjoy being with Me, like Leo enjoys being with you. Do you see how he just has to get closer and closer to you? I love it when you do that.”
Oh my soul. What do you do with that?
You know I can’t hardly snuggle the cats now without having a ” quiet time” with Jesus. He loves it when we curl up in His arms safe, content, even purring—that inexpressible groan of our spirit connecting with His Spirit.
