I’ve never owned dogs and cats at the same time. Some of these videos make me wish I had.
Note that this are mostly adult cats playing with puppies. How do they know to be so gentle? I mean, the puppy wouldn’t know–right? So it’s up to the grownup cat to set the tone. And they know just how to do it. Very smart!
Here’s a hymn to make the rafters ring, an old classic–Rejoice, Ye Pure in Heart, sung by the congregation at Grace Community Church in Sun Valley, California. The video’s not much, but the audio is great. Turn it up!
It looks like dogs never suffer from ennui. That’s a crossword puzzle word for boredom. They don’t do crosswords, but everything else is on the table. The dogs in this video are all having a blast.
And some dogs have discovered that they, like cats, can invent all sorts of ways to keep you from reading!
We’re at the Royal Albert Hall in London (in spirit) to hear the choir, full orchestra, and a couple thousand people sing Holy, Holy, Holy; and then for a bonus they’ll go on to give us Now Thank We All Our God. Sometimes there’s nothing like the full treatment! Make a joyful noise unto the Lord.
That last video was awfully short, so I’m giving you another one.
When you can’t find your pet where he’s supposed to be, it’s probably because he has figured out how to escape. Like the critters in this video.
Believe it or not, the best animal escape artists I’ve ever seen are–of all things–box turtles. You’d be amazed by their artfulness. Keeping Steve McQueen and Charles Bronson penned up in the old stalag was a piece of cake, compared to keeping box turtles.
Actually you need at least ten of something before you can decimate it, and we haven’t got but one pit bull; but I have always wanted to use that word in a headline, and now seemed as good a time as any.
I thought we could use another belt of this today.
Around the year 800, Christian England was overrun by pagans, most of them from Denmark. It was the Viking Age. They came for loot and plunder, leaving a trail of death and destruction in their wake.
By the providence of God, Alfred, King of Wessex, overcame many defeats–one of which left him a hunted fugitive in his own land–and finally won the war. The Christians won not only peace and security: the invaders converted, settled down, and became part of the population.
We seem to be entering such a time of trial in our own day. The difference is that our heathen are home-grown, turned against us by our schools and colleges. They hate their own country and want to subject it to a “fundamental transformation”–into what, God only knows.
Defeat them and convert them. Trust in the Lord and hang tough. And, like Alfred, never give up.
Here’s another one I never heard before–He Will Hold Me Fast, performed by Keith and Kristyn Getty. The background of calm seas and gentle waves, God the Father’s handiwork, moves me more than I know how to say.
Our cats pay no attention whatsoever to our printer. Maybe because it’s not a fancy-schmancy printer like the ones in this video. Cats seem to be fascinated by those.
What would you give to know precisely what was going through a cat’s mind as he studies the printer and ponders his next move?
This is I Thessalonians 4:13-18 set to music, and performed by the kids at Fountainview Academy. “Wherefore comfort one another with these words…” Yes–St. Paul has words of comfort for us. The Holy Spirit gave them to him, to give to us.
