WHY ???


The wife's cat seems to always be in my way.

When I get up in the morning it gets in the door
as I come through.  If I am not careful, I'll trip.
When I am at the dinner table, it's hanging around
the table.  If I use the recliner to take a nap, it is on 
the floor in front of the recliner.  No matter where I 
go in the house, the cat is there.

In the picture above.
I was waiting a few minutes before going to the 
funeral of a friend.  I looked down and the cat 
had gotten in between my feet and settled down.

Finally it dawned on me.  The cat wants to be 
with me.  Why?, I don't know.  But apparently 
it does.

Then the Lord brought something else to my mind.
Why don't I want to be with God as much as the
cat wants to be with me?????????

Some day we will all take a final ride in one of these.
Or something used for the same purpose.  And when
we do - you can be sure that we had better be on a 
"first name" bases with our creator and life sustainer.

How much do I want to be with God now?
If I don't want to be with him now, he is not
going to want me with him then.

"So then, submit yourselves to God.
Resist the Devil, and he will run away
from you.  Come near to God, and he
will come near to you.  Wash your hands
you sinners!  Purify your hearts you 
(James 4:7,8 GNB)
