There are few things more heart rending.
What we don’t usually think of is the pain of a pet when it’s beloved owner dies.
Sadly, that is a situation we’re dealing with in my home.
We have two more cats today.
Last week their momma died unexpectedly.
She loved her cats…and in turn they gave her the kind of affection she found less of from humans.
They were her constant companions through much loss and deprivation.
They are here and safe, but shattered and confused.
They are grieving
They don’t understand.
They can’t understand.
They will live out their lives here and they will be cared for and loved…but they will never be the same.
Those bonds don’t break, they simply wait for reunion.
I , for one, believe there will be a reunion…
I also believe that we can learn something about the heart of God from these bereft cats.
There are things that happen to us that shatter us,confuse us, maybe even break us.
We wonder where God is and why He would allow such things.
Unfortunately,the gap in understanding between ourselves and our God is sometimes greater than that between us and our pets.
We don’t understand.
We can’t understand.
We live out our lives hoping we are cared for and loved by God, but we are never quite the same.
In the meantime, we try to trust..just as our two new friends here will try someday.
We wait for reunions and for the day when God will make all things right .
Those reunions will happen and that day will come.
Maybe you needed reminded…
I have to go minister to some cats…
Make your own application…
