Well once again, I nearly died laughing!!!!! Since our little catastrophe I've seen the kitties run upstairs constantly to check up as to the goings on. Honestly, I just don't have the energy to tidy up or clean up right now, knowing that the room will be gutted and refitted some time in the near future. All the while, for kitties, this is a good thing! You see the bed base is folded up (futon) and the mattress is standing upright against the wall and the furniture is bunched up in the middle of the floor. This of course leaves plenty of spaces for kitties to crawl through, hide behind and pounce around.
Of course tonight was no different. Now with cats the same rules as with kids applies. By this I mean that if you can't hear them or see them they are most likely either getting up to mischief or into trouble, so best you go hunting for them. Lol! Honey had been missing for a few minutes so I decided to check upstairs.......I can barely hold the laughter.....but there was kitty, stranded at the top of the mattress like a cat up a tree! Bwwahhhh hhaaa haa hah haa! I laughed so hard that a few minutes later he came to me with the tiniest meeeeew as if to say, “But mommy, that really wasn't funny,” bwhaaahhaaaahaaa!
Well God expects something different from us to kids and cats. You see when His back is turned He needs to know that we WON'T be getting up to mischief or in trouble. God expects us to live life maturely and with personal self control. To what areas does this expectation apply? Pretty much all areas of life. He requires that we exercise a healthy balance between, spirit, soul and body and that we take care of ourselves as best we can. That does not mean we need to now condemn our behaviour but give ourselves the same love and grace that he would and grow in Godly maturity.
