Yeah, We Love Our Pets

Puppies and kittens, dogs and cats–lots of huggable moments in this video. Sorry I couldn’t get one with hamsters and iguanas in it, too, but them’s the breaks.

Was God good and great and wise to build love into us, or what?


Homage to a Butterfly

Mr. Nature here–and I can’t let this year go by without paying homage to the tiger swallowtail butterfly, one of my favorite creations by God’s mind and hands.

These tigers are holding a convention on a stand of buttonbush. I’ve never seen so many in one place. Around here, you just see one now and then, alone. But then we don’t have any buttonbush to attract them.

Mrs. Nature is thinking next year’s garden might be better as a butterfly garden–milkweed for the monarchs, and assorted wildflowers for the rest. I’m all for it. Maybe this’ll be my chance finally to see a hummingbird.


‘Come, Thou Fount of Every Blessing’I

I have to run to the dentist, and just have time to post this hymn, Come, Thou Fount of Every Blessing: requested by “thewhiterabbit,” and I’m happy to be able to do it.


Tight Squeezes for Cats & Dogs

Why do they do this–jam themselves into really tight spaces? These cats and dogs are crazy.

And how come you never see videos of how they get out of these incredibly constricted spaces? We always see the cat going head-first into the glass ball half his size. So let’s see how he gets out!


‘I Know Whom I Have Believed’

We all know there are times when faith comes very hard, and belief is hard to find. God knows, too. I’m having one of those days.

Well, when things go bad, sing louder. Here are the kids at Fountainview Academy, with I Know Whom I Have Believed.


Bonus Video: Gator on the Golf Course

Here’s a little something we never have to contend with in New Jersey. But even in Florida–willya look at the size of that gator!

Note that the alligator, for all its bulk, walks with its belly high up off the ground. The man with the camera might have a few anxious moments if he reflected that even very large gators are capable of short bursts of real speed. At that distance, the gator could catch the man if he really wanted to. Just a little somethin’ to think about…


Some Fun Cats

Somehow every cat video I checked tonight had the cat with the bell, “Please ring for service.” Well, that’s compilations for you. But the new clips in here are pretty good–especially the one of the cat with the broom. Don’t miss that one: you may want to try it at home.


‘There’s a Wideness in God’s Mercy’

I was thinking of this hymn, these past few days. Back in Sunday school, when we were introduced to the adult hymnal used in the regular church services, this was the first hymn that they had us sing. We had kind of an odd hymnal, though, with melodies you never heard in other churches: so I couldn’t find There’s a Wideness in God’s Mercy with the melody that I remembered.

Sung here by the Sanctuary Choir.


Cat and Mouse–With a Twist

I’m not recommending you actually try this, but on rare occasions, cats and mice can be friends. Yeah, if I tried it, I’d wind up with half a mouse. But cats and mice are both extremely intelligent and highly adaptable, and can do things you don’t expect. I am assuming the animals in these videos remained friends off-camera.

I once had a mouse who liked to groom my mustache. Think about that. What did she see when she saw me, besides a mustache that needed grooming? But mice do learn to relate to you on a personal level, and I’m blamed if I can fathom how that happens.


‘Softly and Tenderly’

This hymn, Softly and Tenderly, sung by the Altar of Praise Chorale, reminds me of Jesus’ words, after Isaiah, in Luke 4:18.

The spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the broken-hearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, to preach the acceptable year of the Lord.

And after he closed the book,  Jesus said, This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears.
