Musings 7.17.21

In the Piatt house we have 4 cats. They are all pet rescues, and they are family to us. We have Cutie (Caleb’s cat), who sucks a blanket and sleeps on a second pillow on his bed nightly. There are the sisters, Honey, who sleeps on Cam’s legs every night, and Cocoa, who loves to bring us prizes in the middle of the night. Finally, Pumpkin, who is both very naughty and very funny.

I know many of our church family have fur babies in your homes. I also know that some are allergic and appreciate animals from afar. This week I have prayed for families that have lost their precious pets, those who are working on bringing home new ones, and have prayed for healing for those who are visiting the vet.

I am excited to share with you that this Fall we will share together in the Blessing of the Animals. We continue to work on the details of this service, but I want you to be aware that it will be in the near future. As a matter of fact, ever since talking about it this week I have been humming this lovely Anglican Hymn:

All things bright and beautiful,
All creatures great and small,
All things wise and wonderful,
The Lord God made them all.

Thanks be to God,

Pastor Becky
