See? Cats and dogs can play nicely together. I assume none of them is getting hurt in any of these tussles. Otherwise it would either escalate into real mayhem or one of the parties would get serious about running away.
I love watching animals play together. For some reason my lizards never did that. I wish my cats would play with each other, but their sibling rivalry won’t permit it. Ah, well, there’s always videos…
Requested by Erlene, He’s Still God, by Carroll Roberson.
I’m sometimes asked when I take requests and post hymns on this blog.
Check out the nooze. Do you really need to ask?
I love this hymn and just have to post it now and then–To Be a Pilgrim, by John Bunyan, author of Pilgrim’s Progress. Performed by Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band. It’s the kind of hymn that adds some spark to your bark!
Also known as He Who Would Valiant Be.
Dogs are like turtles: they can get to places that you’d never think they’d reach. But you’ll never see turtles jump like some of the dogs in this video. In fact, you’ll never see turtles jump at all.
One of these dogs could easily be mistaken for a kangaroo.
Fun False Fact: There is a dog in Sayreville, New Jersey, that can read ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics. But he never tells you what they say.
Isn’t it wonderful, the way you can rack up college credits by being a bozo, or at least acting like one? All aboard for Columbia’s “Climate Change Games”!
At this point we have to wonder if there’s any genuine education going on at all in any of our colleges and looniversities. Is it only half-baked twaddle anymore? Do you have to prove you’ve become a full-fledged idiot before you get a degree?
The ninnitude in this story was from five years ago, and they have labored on it ever since.
Enjoy the photos of English cathedrals as you listen to the hymn, Dear Lord and Father of Mankind, sung by the Choir of the Abbey School in Tewksbury.
If you’re new here, we take hymn requests. If you have a favorite hymn you’d like to share, just leave a comment anywhere on the blog and we’ll do the rest.
My cats are too mature anymore to run around all crazy-like. Roll a ball by either of them, and they’ll do no more than turn their heads to watch it. No more running around sideways with puffy tails, either. *Sigh*
So, if I want to see cats get all worked up, I turn to cat videos–like this one. Does this cat have a lot of go to him, or what? Vim and vigor to spare!
No one wrote more hymns than Fanny Crosby–more than 8,000 hymns. This is one of them: He Hideth My Soul, from 1890, sung here by the Antrim Mennonite Choir. Background sets by God the Father, maker of heaven and earth.
The cat always wins these confrontations, but the balloon doesn’t make it easy for him. Note the interplay between curiosity and caution (curiosity always wins). And causing the balloon to burst doesn’t always scare the cat. Sometimes it positively mystifies him.
Imagine you’re a cat trying to make sense of a balloon. It can’t be easy for them.
Requested by Joshua, Sing the Wondrous Love of Jesus, sung by the FBC Paden Choir. This hymn, written by Eliza Hewitt in 1898, is also known as When We All Get to Heaven. We love those classic 19th-century hymns!
