Use Your Gifts to Change the World Wednesday – A New Baby in the House

Today is day four with a new baby in the house. Yes, as silly as it sounds, at our house bringing a kitten home is like having a new baby. I have the jealous sibling, my Great Dane, Singer, and the baby who is adjusting, Dominic. When there is too much stimuli, like when visitors stop by to meet him, he gets overwhelmed . . .

Above all love each other deeply because love covers a multitude of sins.          

1 Peter 4:8

Happy Wednesday!  How are you using your gifts to change the world?

Today is day four with a new baby in the house. Yes, as silly as it sounds, at our house bringing a kitten home is like having a new baby.  I have the jealous sibling, my Great Dane, Singer, and the baby who is adjusting, Dominic.  When there is too much stimuli, like when visitors stop by to meet him, he gets overwhelmed.  He never sleeps.  In fact, he stalks and tries to kill us in our bedroom, his jungle, all night.  I have the battle wounds to prove it.  He needs me to stay with him while he eats.  Yet, I have to be careful because Singer gets jealous and cries.  When Dominic can’t find me, he cries.  Then, there is the third pet in the equation, my aging Shih Tzu, Freckles, who wanders around trying not to be attacked.  Last night it took me about two and half hours to get everyone settled down.

Reading this you are probably wondering why I would want such chaos.  Well, like with any new addition in your family, there is great joy.  Dominic makes us laugh and feel younger. The joy overrides the aggravation.  We love him.   Also like other babies, Dominic will one day grow up.  With my children it was too soon.  No matter what I did, I couldn’t slow time down.  Also like with people, pets will age and die.  I suspect my beloved Freckles will be next and probably not too far in the future.

Family is like that.  We never know how long our loved ones will be around.  So, today I challenge you to use your gifts to Change the World at home.  Remember to spend time with and love your family.  Have a great day.  God bless you.

  1. It sounds like things are exasperating and fun at the same time. Once we had seven tiny kittens we had to bring into the house because their mom, a stray, was killed. It was chaos, but having all those little guys around was so entertaining (except for our older cat, who didn’t enjoy anything about them). Enjoy every minute of it!

  2. Awe Thanks so much for Saving this kitten!! I own a female cat, whoops, she owns me and her name is Patches, because she’s only two colors that are black and white!!

    I have a post on my website About my Female Cat Patches!! It can be found on my website About Me!!

    God Bless all my Sisters in Christ Jesus-Yeshua and Your Families and Friends!!

    I Love you all Everyone through Jesus-Yeshua Christ, because HE LOVED 💕 EVERYONE FIRST!!

    Love 💕 Always and Shalom ( Peace ), YSIC \o/
