    Image may contain: dog

I really laughed when I saw this picture of a TRUSTING cat letting her doggie friend "attack" her!!! Wouldn't it be wonderful if we could all remain calm and trusting in the face of seeming danger.

Many of us may have pondered and benefited from the following counsel from the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy. I certainly have!!

"When the illusion of sickness or sin tempts you, cling steadfastly to God and His idea. Allow nothing but His likeness to abide in your thought. "

"Let neither fear nor doubt overshadow your clear sense and calm trust, that the recognition of life harmonious — as Life eternally is — can destroy any painful sense of, or belief in, that which Life is not. " S&H 495

It is almost like the cat somehow understands Mrs Eddy's guidance and the Bible correlative passage from Proverbs:

" Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths." Proverbs 3

Good Cat!! Good Cat!!!!

ANIMAL PHOTO OF THE DAY - A Comforting Mom in the Style of the Heavenly Father/Mother

In many instances our precious doggies more nearly reflect God's "mothering" than humans do!!! They seldom use baby sitters, don't run off to play bridge, play golf, go shopping or spend hours on the phone or watching television!!

This little lady is fully occupied as a dedicated mother. However, she may do a bit of knitting as we can see from the picture.

This picture reminds me of how God "mothers" us as this favorite hymn proclaims:

Like as a mother, God comforteth His children;
Comfort is calm, that bids all tumult cease;
Comfort is hope and courage for endeavor,
Comfort is love, whose home abides in peace.

Love is true solace and giveth joy for sorrow,
—O, in that light, all earthly loss is gain;
Joy must endure, Love’s giving is forever;
Life is of God, whose radiance cannot wane.

O holy presence, that stills all our demanding,
O love of God, that needs but to be known!
Heaven is at hand, when thy pure touch persuades us,
Comfort of God, that seeks and finds His own.
(Christian Science Hymnal p 174)

Thanks for being a precious little mother. I love your family!!

 "God fashions all things, after His own likeness. Life is reflected in existence, Truth in truthfulness, God in goodness, which impart their own peace and permanence. " **

"Love, redolent with unselfishness, bathes all in beauty and light. The grass beneath our feet silently exclaims, “The meek shall inherit the earth.” **  ** (From Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy)

This little Miss, elegant in her Spring finery is the picture of innocence and meekness. You can feel God's dear Love reflected in her sparkling eyes.  

We are so fortunate just to... BE!   And to be able to see and enjoy lovely little creatures like Miss Springtime.

Thank you Father of All!!!   May each of us live each day with Love and Meekness too.

Dear Doggie,

We need to have a talk about some of your habits.

In the Bible New Testament book of Luke, Jesus of Nazareth advised against greed, covetousness and the blind accumulation of material things.

He once said: “Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man’s life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth.”

In order to find happiness he advised that we drop the sense of happiness in acquiring material things. He said: “Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat; neither for the body, what ye shall put on. The life is more than meat, and the body is more than raiment.”

“Consider the lilies how they grow: they toil not, they spin not; and yet I say unto you, that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.”

“Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.”

So, lovely Doggie, you can relax and share the toys with your friends. Don’t be a Greedy Doggie!!! God will provide all that you need.
