Lost and Found

Ephesians 2 : 12

That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the common wealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the World :

Luke 15 : 8 -9

Either what woman having ten pieces of silver, if she lose one piece, doth light a candle, and sweep the house and seek diligently till she find it ?

And when she hath found it, she calleth her friends and her neighbors together, saying, Rejoice with me; for I have found the piece which I had lost.

When we have lost something we get anxious and nervous and start turning our house upside down until we once again have found our long lost treasure. We feel a great sense of relief once we have found our lost item and have returned it to its proper place in our home.

We get lost in the shuffle of life now and then and forget the truly important things in our life. We do not want to lose our relationship with God without our relationship with God our relationships with other people suffer greatly. Go to church and surround yourself with others that want a long and lasting relationship with God in their lives. Belong to groups that bring out the best in you and support you along all of life’s many challenges. Make time for friends and family in your life and do not take them for granted as life is short so spend your days wisely and effectively.

Spring Cleaning for Your Cats Optimal Health

Start out your cats Spring with clean bedding, water bowls, food dishes,bedding, litter boxes and more. I wash my cats bedding in hot soapy water with fabric softener. My cats love fresh fluffy clean bedding to sleep on. I clean out each food dish and water bowl and replace old plastic ones that are hard to get 100 % clean. I clean the litter boxes outdoors with dish pan soap and a good firm brush or replace them with new litter boxes.

20160106_124613

For farm cats replace there old straw bedding with nice fresh straw or hay if that is all that is available at the time. Clean up there food and water bowls. Check their heated cat beds for cracks or other hazards and have a replacement bed on hand for next winter. Heated cat beds are on sale in the late spring and summer months.

Clean the tile or vinyl floors or carpet in your house so hopefully you will not have to deal with fleas in your house and on your cats. I bathe some of my cats and I brush and comb out their hair on a regular basis. Change your litter often as fleas like to bred in dirty litter boxes and dirty litter that gets on your floors. Do not let your cats outdoors as they can pick up fleas from being outdoors. Fleas can cause health problems for you and your cat. If your cat gets fleas regardless of all your precautions take him to your vet to get treated ASAP. You will need to have an exterminator come to your home to get rid of your flea infestation.

Take your cats to your vet to have their teeth checked as bad teeth can cause a lot of health problems. Get all of your cats vaccinations up to date as the old saying goes an once of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Ask your vet about flea and heart worm medicine for cats and a shot for feline leukemia. I hope you and your cats have a wonderful and healthy Spring.

Spring

Genesis  1 : 11

And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth : and it was so.

Proverbs  27 : 25

The hay appeareth, and the tender grass sheweth itself, and the herbs of the mountains are gathered.

I love Spring as it is a time of rebirth and re-awakenings. The seed that rested over the winter months burst into life again. The blossoms on the trees burst open showing pretty flowers. New life is coming into the world as baby calves are being born and small chicks break out of their shells to get their first look at the world.

The rains come and wash away the dirt that is left on the ground during the winter months. The earth is looking clean and bright and the buds on the trees are opening up more and more to show off their true amazing beauty. Bees are getting ready to pollinate are trees and gardens.

holly hocks

Birds have come back from their migration to build new nest and start up their new families again. The male birds are singing their lovely songs to attract their new mate for the year. All the birds are in beautiful song and plucking up insects and worms from the ground to eat and to feed to their offspring.

20151027_142925

Spring is a time of year for all of us to have a rebirth and to regain a better relationship with God. We should study our Bible more and be more attentive to the needs of others. Pray for those that are sick , poor or homeless and help them out however you can.

I love to plant a garden and watch the seeds turn into healthy robust plants that I can eat and freeze and eat over the winter months. The corn fields are generally over knee high by the fourth of July. Remember that Spring is a time of renewal and rebirth for man, animals and plants.

Taste Of The Wild Rocky Mountain Canned Cat Food from Chewy.Com

I was provided Taste of The Wild Rocky Mountain Canned cat Food from Chewy.Com to facilitate my review. All thoughts are 100 % honest and my own.

Taste of the Wild cat food is made with Salmon and Roasted Venison in gravy and is grain free. I am feeding the dry  Taste of the Wild cat food to all of my cats and they absolutely love it. I was excited to learn that they started making a canned cat food.

I opened up two cans  of Taste of the Wild and placed them on opposite ends of the house for my cats next door to eat. Russ ate up the Salmon and Roasted Venison in gravy quickly. Bella jumped down from her heated bed and inhaled her Taste of Wild canned cat food from Chewy.Com.

20170311_073124

I went to the other room in the house and noticed Faith gobbling up her Taste of Wild canned cat food. My three cat brothers Hilford, Sherlock and Mr. Gray were all eating out of the same food dish. They licked out every single morsel and all of the gravy out of their food dish. After my three cat brothers were done eating they all laid down side by side in their cat beds for a nice relaxing cat nap after an awesome meal of Taste of the Wild.

20170311_073112

My outdoor cat Maggie came up to the house and I gave her some of the Taste of the Wild with Salmon and Roasted Venison in gravy from Chewy.Com. wish she enjoyed immensely. I saw Onyx looking out of one of the outdoor buildings and I gave him a large share of the Taste of the Wild canned cat food and he had it completely gone in one minute or less. My cats love to eat Taste of the Wild Cat Food from Chewy.Com. My cats love their Taste of the Wild brand cat foods pawsatively.

Unreliable

Ecclesiastes  10 : 18

By much slothfulness the building decayeth: and through idleness of the hands the house droppeth through.

Deuteronomy  32 : 28

For they are a nation void of counsel, neither is there any understanding in them.

We always want to hire reliable people that we can trust to get the job done right the first time around. When you hire an unreliable person it is frustrating and annoying. I want things done in a professional and precise manner. I want a worker that I do not have to stand around and watch to make sure he is doing his job the way I would do it myself.

Years ago my Father hired a carpenter to put up ceiling tile. The carpenter cut around the light fixture instead of taking it down and making a small hole for the wires to fit through. My Father had to redo the ceiling tile himself. I had to tell a carpenter how to put a new windowsill in years ago.

An unreliable car can be beyond annoying. The car may not start when you need it or it never gets you from point A to point B. I sold that car and was glad to be rid of it. The car I sold was a 1987 car that I had bought used.

We need people in our lives that are reliable that we can always count on. God is always reliable and we can always count on God to be by our side in a crisis. God helps us when we need him the most.

red lighthouse

What does it mean to be reliable ? Being reliable means you will show up to work on time and get things done quickly and in  professional manner. You will be there when your friends,family, or relatives need you. There is no valid reason for people to be unreliable. God is reliable 24/7.

Conrad and the Cuckoo Clock

I had my Cuckoo Clock repaired and it did not work on the wall where it used to work. My clock repairer man told me to move it to another wall.

I moved the Cuckoo Clock  to another wall and it would work for 11 hours or 26 hours and then it would stop. There was no rhyme or reason for my clocks erratic behavior. I checked to make sure he clock was level which it was. One day my clock stopped after two hours, I was extremely frustrated with my Cuckoo Clock.

20170304_103139

Conrad is my youngest house cat and he loves to watch birds eat out of my bird feeders. He loves to play with cat toy birds that sing or make a noise.

Conrad  could not  reach my Cuckoo Clock where it used to hang on the wall. The new location for my Cuckoo Clock was next to the bookcase in my dining room. I was reading a book one day in my living room when I saw Conrad jump on top of the bookcase and stop the pendulum of the Cuckoo Clock with his paw so the pendulum would not hit him in the head as he tried to remove the singing bird from my Cuckoo Clock. I told Conrad to stop and jump down from the bookcase which he did.

20150523_175227

Conrad is very clever he waits until I am outdoors now before he stops the clock. Conrad has finally lost his fascination with the wooden bird in the Cuckoo Clock and the bird can come out now to announce the hour and the half hour without worrying about Conrad dismantling him.

img_20150815_130542

I told my clock repair man to ask people if they have a cat before he repairs their Cuckoo Clock. He got a chuckle when I told him that Conrad was the cat burglar so to speak. My Cuckoo Clock is glad it can still announce the hour and the half hour with no help from Conrad.

Cursing or Swearing

Psalms 109 :  17 – 18

As he loved cursing, so let it come unto him : as he delighted not in blessing, so let it be far from him.

As he clothed himself with cursing like as with his garment, so let it come into his bowels like water, and like oil into his bones.

One of the Ten Commandments is : Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain.

Cursing will get you nowhere in life in fact it will set you back in life. Cursing or Swearing shows shows a lack of intelligence on your part for use of a better word that would express how you are feeling just as effectively or more so  than the swearword can. Do not take the name of our Lord thy God in vain for he is always listening and looking at what you are writing or saying to each other about him.

20150825_054109

I do not enjoy going to a movie that is using a swear word in every other  sentence. I do not enjoy talking to someone that is constantly swearing. I do not buy books to read that I knowingly know that they are swearing and cursing up a storm in the book. If you cannot write a book without swearing in it it is a huge problem as far as you respecting God. God found it easy and healthy to communicate with people without swearing or cursing.

Remember if you start swearing or cursing it will be harder for you to stop doing it because it actually will be like a garment that you cloth yourself with everyday. God and other people will lose respect for you. Always watch the words that come out of your mouth as you can never take them back again.

My Father once told me if you start swearing someday you will do it in the most inappropriate spot and feel totally embarrassed and ashamed of yourself. Remember you never want to take the name of the Lord thy God in vain. Speak to others and write to others without the use of swear words and it will take you far in life.

Cats Have Compassion

Cats care about one another’s well being. Cats will lick and clean each other and they have empathy for a sickly kitten. I had a Siamese cat that did not like other cats but she showed great compassion for a little sickly kitten that I had brought into my house to nurse back to health. She would let the little kitten sleep in her cat bed with her. My Siamese cat would clean the little kitten like she was his Mother.

Cats are very attentive when you are feeling sick. I had one of my cats check on me every hour on the hour after I had had surgery. He would come in the room and meow loudly and he would stay until I told him I was okay. Cats will lay down next to you and purr away when you do not feel well.

20151109_101734

When I have taken a cat to the vet for surgery my other cats flock around him and lick him and comfort him when I bring him back in my house. My other cats will even let the cat patient eat their cat treats. My cats have even shared their rodent catch of the day with an older outdoor cat.

When my Mother died my Siamese cat set on the edge of the bathtub and she had a wailing meow for several days. Cats love a good an excellent caregiver and miss them dearly when they can no longer take care of them.

My cats became very fond of a pet goat that I had a one time, they would sleep in his dog house with him. We had a small dog and the cat, goat and dog would all go out hunting together. The goat would veer over into the corn field and my cat and dog would help each other catch the mouse they were after in the edge of the field. Our small dog would let the cat and her kittens share her dog house with her and that way all of them stayed nice and comfy.

Triumph

         Genesis  4 : 7                                                                                                                                                                                                                         If thou doest  well, shalt thou not be accepted ? and if thou doest not well, sin lieth at the door. And unto thee shall be his desire,  and   thou shalt rule over him.

2 Chronicles 14 : 11

And Asa cried unto the Lord his God, and said, Lord, it is nothing with thee to help, whether with many, or with them that have no power : help us O lord our God; for we rest on thee and in thy name we go against this multitude. O Lord, thou art our God; let not man prevail against thee.

Will you triumph with you relationship with God ? Will you stay away from the evil that knocks on your door and tries to influence your life and your values. If someone tries to lead you down the wrong path in your life avoid them at all cost your relationship with God is much more important then trying to fit in with a group of people that will only drag you down and harm you in the long run.

Choose your friends wisely as the old saying goes. You become exactly like the company you keep you start to believe in their values and develop their same mannerisms. Stand firm on your beliefs and values and you will triumph in life. Do not follow the multitude if you know they are wrong. Do not follow a herd of Elephants as you may be trampled and lose your values that make you the beautiful person that you are now.

crystal

 

You triumph in this life by spreading Gods good works and helping people in need. Be kind and considerate to people and animals. If you make a mess clean it up and don’t leave it for someone else to take care of. Have friends in your life that support you and have similar values to your own. Be firm on your Christian values and you will have triumphed with your relationship with God.

Solid Gold Purrfect Pairings with chicken liver and goat milk from Chewy.Com

I was provided Solid Gold Purrfect Pairings with chicken liver and goat milk from Chewy.Com to facilitate my review. All thoughts are 100 % honest and my own.

I first gave the solid gold cat food to my three outdoor cats. I put some in the corn crib and Maggie’s sister ate it up very quickly. She was growling at Maggie while Maggie ate her portion. Onyx got in on the cat food later on and finished off what little was left.

20151004_135707

The Solid Gold cat food has a Savory Mousse texture to it which makes it easy for an older cat to chew it up easily. The goat milk in the Solid Gold is an aid to your cats health and digestive system. Solid Gold is a Holistic all life stages cat food that is grain free and gluten free. A full grown cat can eat up to two containers in one day and a lactating Mother cat can have three containers in one day.

I gave some of the Solid Gold Purrfect Pairings with chicken liver and goat milk from Chewy.Com to my cats next door. Bella would not stop eating the Solid Gold cat food and she would growl at my other cats as they ate away at the Solid Gold cat food. Mr. Gray, Hilford, Sherlock, and Addi loved the Solid Gold with the chicken liver and goat milk. Mr. Gray made sure he got every last savory morsel of his portion eaten up.

I put some Solid Gold in another room for Cali and Faith to eat. Cali was purring away the whole time that she ate her portion of Solid Gold from Chewy.Com. Faith loved to lick away at the Solid Gold cat food and savor the flavor of each and every bit before she would finally swallow it down.

All of my cats seemed to savor the flavor of Solid Gold Purrfect Pairings with chicken liver and goat milk from Chewy.Com.
