Prayers

Farewell, Goose
Poem For Cats

And God asked the feline spirit
Are you ready to come home?
Oh, yes, quite so, replied the precious soul
And, as a cat, you know I am most able
To decide anything for myself.

Are you coming then? asked God.
Soon, replied the whiskered angel
But I must come slowly
For my human friends are troubled
For you see, they need me, quite certainly.

But don't they understand? Asked God
That you'll never leave them?
That your souls are intertwined. For all eternity?
That nothing is created or destroyed?
It just is....forever and ever and ever.

Eventually they will understand,
Replied the glorious cat
For I will whisper into their hearts
That I am always with them
I just am....forever and ever and ever.

Goose left us today, and his humans are heartbroken.  His baby kidneys were never going to get better, and he was in pain.  He was only a few months old.  

All for your kind words and thoughts are appreciated; they helped to lift his spirit up to heaven.

While we are praying, let's include the people who are being or will be lashed by Hurricane Matthew. May the rain and wind spare you and yours, and those already digging out, may you find assistance and a brighter future.
