Operation Rescue

Wednesday, September 21st, 2011

My house is totally protected when it comes to critters! In the 10 years that I’ve lived here, I can’t remember ever having to use a mousetrap to fight off any mousey intruders. I consider myself blessed thanks to my little kitty friends. They’ve all done a fabulous job of running predator security around the Gway house.

Which reminds me, I need to praise my furry feline’s more often! Meow! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Currently, my kitty patrol squad has dwindled down to one sneaky girl. Her name is Helen. My next door neighbor allows her inside her house and calls her Lucy. (Umm, that’s another post in itself) We, however do not keep her inside since she is an OUTSIDE HUNTING cat and we all have terrible cat allergies.

I guess what I’m saying is that we really aren’t cat people. We just like to keep them around for work purposes. Thanks, Helen…you’re a great hunter!

Hubby and I were watching her on the prowl the other day when he felt compassion for the poor little critter she was chasing around. We usually just look away and let her do her thing. But this time it was different. The scared little chipmunk was spinning in circles and jumping around trying to dodge her swats when hubby scooped him up and saved his life.

I’m not sure he knows that this was a rescue operation. What do you think?

It reminds me of my own need for protection. Oftentimes from myself. I manage to find trouble and stress easily without even trying. Thankfully, God never tires of rescuing me. Just when I need Him most he sweeps in and scoops me up….sheltering me from the deathly swats that life throws my way. I’m powerless against them (like Mister Chipmunk) without Him.

Today, watch out for opportunties to help someone who might need a bit of rescuing. You never know when it might be you needing it yourself.

Happy Hump Day!
