What are these fuzzy little characters trying so hard to tell us?
I don’t know. My cat, Robbie, knows at least 50 different ways to say “Give me something to eat.” She and her sister, Peep, also excel at pulling wistful little faces. They’ve practiced this a lot over the years and have gotten really good at it.
This beautiful hymn from Norway, Mitt Hjerte Alltid Vanker, harks back to Christmas with the words, “My heart will always wander to where our Lord was born.” Background sets by God the Father, who made the heavens and the earth.
Cats are really good at being mothers, and pretty generous about it, too. If kittens, or a human baby, aren’t available, well–bunnies will do. Even a baby chick will do. Anything, as long as it’s nice and fuzzy and needs a mommy. One of these cats has her own kittens and still adopts–and nurses–a bunny. And somehow a dog nursing a kitten got in here, too. Plenty of love to go around.
We start today’s blogging with a Sunday school favorite–He Leadeth Me, sung by the Mennonite Hour Men’s Quartet. Gorgeous background sets by God the Father, maker of heaven and earth.
How do these cats know they have to be gentle with human babies, and make allowances for them? What is it about a cat that so delights a baby? Too bad we can’t ask either one of them. Well, we could, but what’s the point?
I really enjoy the way these two friends of ours play music. I’ll Fly Away is a traditional country him.
What do we have to do to get these guys to sing, too?
Looking for a hymn to post, I came upon Our Great Savior. Ah, a new one–haven’t heard it before. Only it turns out that I have. Often! I’m beginning to think each and every denomination has its own set of lyrics for the Welsh melody, Hyfrydol. And each and every one of them makes a joyful noise unto the Lord.
Sung by the choir and congregation at Temple Baptist Church in Powell, Tennessee.
And you thought these were just for dogs and cats? Hah! Turns out everybody likes to chase those little lasers lights–in fact, this is probably the only way you can actually play and have fun with a spider. If you’re interested in something bigger, with fewer legs, we’ve got ducklings and penguins and a horse.
Joshua requested this one–Mary, Mary, sung a capella by GLAD. Getting ready for the Easter season, everyone?
I love this hymn–I keep saying that: sorry–Leaning on the Everlasting Arms. Alan Jackson’s rendition is short and sweet.
Hey, everybody! We’re in Lent now, and Easter is coming. How about some requests for Easter and Lenten hymns?
