The dogs in this video are terrified of cats. Isn’t that disgraceful? Like, they should have to turn in their dog badges and apply for positions as mice. But I’ve also seen videos of cats who are afraid of mice. Shameful.
P.S.–Please, please don’t let your cat or your dog out on the street. It’s dangerous enough for humans, the way folks drive these days.
We have one more hymn request today, and I think posting it now will do us all some good: Just Go By, sung by Carroll Roberson, requested by Erlene.
You just can’t count on princes, leaders, really smart people: “Cease ye from man, whose breath is in his nostrils,” said Isaiah.
But we can count on the finished work of Jesus Christ Our Lord.
“TheWhiteRabbit” thought we might enjoy this hymn, which they sang at his church this Sunday: Holy God, We Praise Thy Name. This one goes all the way back to the 4th century, when it was sung in Latin as Te Deum. German lyrics came only in the 1700s, and English later, so now it’s sung in churches the world over.
I can’t think of any older hymns than this, still being sung. Can you?
We have this request from Joshua, Are You Washed in the Blood of the Lamb, by Willie Nelson.
Somehow I always associated this hymn with the Salvation Army. Actually, it was written in 1878 by Elisha Hoffman–who also wrote Leaning on the Everlasting Arms… not to mention another 2,000 or so.
Rats make truly lovable pets. They’re very, very smart: if they lived longer, they’d be composing symphonies. They’re affectionate, adaptable–just think of them as small cats with hairless tails.
I have seen videos of cats opening someone’s purse and taking the money–to do what with, who knows? In this video, you’ll see a rat do it. I suspect a cat put him up to it.
I was going to do some news today, but never mind, it’ll keep. Still thundering, cats under the bed, rain coming down… but the Lord is on His throne.
Linda requested this one: Oh, Lord, You’re Beautiful, by the late Keith Green. We lost him in a plane crash: but by the loving and almighty providence of God, he’ll sing again someday–if he isn’t already singing somewhere in Christ’s Kingdom.
When the 20th century started, this animal didn’t exist, scientifically. There were rumors of it, coming out of central Africa, but nothing official. Not until 1901.
Hi, Mr. Nature here, with the only animal in the giraffe family that’s not a giraffe–the okapi. This one’s in a zoo. The wild ones live in the Congo rain forest.
This gorgeous animal illustrates an unsolvable problem in cryptozoology: once a cryptic creature actually turns up, it immediately ceases to be crytozoology and becomes just plain zoology. The poor cryptozoologists, by definition, can’t have any specimens!
One of my aunts gave me a wonderful toy okapi when I was about five years old: wish I still had it. It may be in my brother’s toy box.
We pray God defends and preserves these beautiful animals that He’s created.
It’s a dark and stormy morning here today. Let’s have some Light: Jesus Christ Our Lord, “the true light, that lighteth every man that cometh into the world (John 1:9); the light that this world’s darkness can’t put out (v. 5).
Yes, I know I post this hymn pretty often–Light of the World, by Charles Wesley, performed by Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band.
But we take hymn requests, too, so if you’ve got one, let us know.
They don’t always hit it off right away, do they? The puppy wants to play; the cat would prefer to evaluate the situation. It must be fun to watch their interactions develop over time. I mean, they’ve gotta get along better than my two cats do with each other…
Requested by Joshua: Angels Long to Look into These Things, by Acappella. Taken from the Scriptures, 1 Peter 1:12. “Unto whom it was revealed, that not unto themselves, but unto us they did minister the things, which are now reported unto you by them that have preached the gospel unto you with the Holy Ghost sent down from heaven; which things the angels desire to look into.”
