Humans give me Heartaches sometimes.
I am Christian and try to show love to everyone around me at all times, just as Christ loves me at all times.
However, it can be quite a challenge at times....take yesterday for example.....
Yesterday afternoon, I was in my car on my way to my knitting class, the car is all cozy and warm, a soft rain hitting the windshield, I had my favorite sweater on and a good song I was humming too and looking forward to seeing some of my favorite people and playing with yarn.
Come around a corner to spot a man throwing 2 kittens out of his van window.
He soon sees that I see him, and speeds away,running over one of the kittens he just threw out the window.
I fly out of the car and run to her, she is mewing, eyes huge with fright as she is dragging her now bloodied hindquarters to me.
I picked her up and her sibling (who is not injured) and carry them carefully back to my warm car, where the sweet baby died in my arms, with her sibling sitting at her side.
Huge tears are falling down my face as hate and bile are rising in my throat.
Then some words came to my mind "Forgive them Lord,for they no not what they do"
I said this over and over again while clutching that poor baby to my aching heart, her sibling perched on my shoulder.
This is how poor Manly found us, and took us home, where the poor wee one was buried in our yard.
I know God cares for all his animals, He speaks in the Bible of knowing even when a small sparrow falls.
As hard as is was for me to witness and as much as Manly and I want to track down this ignorant idiot, I know also that God can not control the free will of this man, but He can place someone who cares in front of His innocent creatures.
He made sure that kitty did not die alone on cold wet street.
He also made sure that her sibling is cared for.
I will not spend time hating this person for what he has done, instead I will let God deal with him.
I am sorry, dear friends, that this is not a very cheery post today,however my heart is aching, and I had to share my pain.
I will return to share pictures of our new kitten and other cheery things soon.
