“God heard me, Mom! He really DID!”

   Remember Saprina?  (pronounced Sa-prEna)  She’s our new kitty and an important member of the Ferguson household.

  She went missing over a week ago, in the midst of all the chaos of life at the time…think tractors working after midnight and sewage filled yard.  When we realized she was gone, our kids were DEVASTATED!!!!  There were days of sad, quiet sobs, and many sleep interrupted nights as happy dreams became sad realities upon waking…. Poor lovies!

   We posted pictures up on 2 stop signs, in hopes that someone, somewhere had seen a little kitty with a yellow ribbon on her neck.

I truly thought, by a week, and not one phone single call later…….that she was long gone. 😦   I just didn’t have the heart to discourage the children’s wishful thoughts and tearful prayers each night.

  Oh to have faith like a child.  Destiny just knew God was going to answer “Yes”, despite my lecture on God’s different answers:

No.

Yes.

Not right now.

  Well, it was a BIG YES this time! Praise His name! 

  We received a phone call that a family had been driving to Buhler and noticed our sign.  They found a kitty over a week ago with a dingy, dirty, frayed yellow “rope” on her neck, which they immediately cut off.  The mom right away thought it was a ribbon, not a rope.  The kitty they found was so tame and sweet, that they knew right away, she was someone’s pet.  They put out the word that they had found a kitty, but heard nothing.  Oh, thank the Lord they saw our sign! 

  It was too late that night to go get her, and we didn’t DARE say anything to the kids, just in case it wasn’t her.  8 am could NOT come fast enough!  Early the next morning, Dale headed out and called with great news: Yes, it was her.  Get the kids lined up because he’s almost home.

  The reunion went as follows:

“Sit down and DO NOT OPEN your eyes!”

Sweet Pax came rushing right over, grunting and pointing “Ooo, Ooo”. He knew something exciting was going on!

003

“Ok, now open your eyes!”

“SAPRINA!  Is it really you?!”

 Even Sophie was excited her friend was back home. She tried all sorts of plans, trying her hardest to get those short little weiner dog legs up high enough to see her friend, waaaaaay up there, in the kids’ arms.

Avery:  “OH Mommy! I am so gwad dat Sapwena is home!”

{Squeals! Then runs to me and throws her arms around my legs for a TIGHT squeeze.}

Happy kids…….

  1. AWWW how precious! Reading through the post, and seeing those precious pictures/faces, brought tears of joy to my eyes as well. Oh how good God is…to think of how the faith of your little ones has been impacted by the answer to their prayers is worth it all. Blessings!

  2. “Rejoice with those who rejoice!!” The Lord certainly has a perfect plan for answering “No” sometimes but I am so glad he answered this prayer with a yes! What a great blessing.

  3. I just LOVE your blog! I LOVE your realism (my word!). I LOVE your honesty! I LOVE how you let us see just how GOOD God is & don’t hide behind rose colored glasses when life IS NOT rosy. Your personal testaments remind me of the verse in 2 Corinthians 1:3-4:
    Blessed {be} the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our affliction so that we will be able to comfort those who are in any affliction with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.
    You may be afflicted right now, but your honesty is enabling you to also comfort (& give HOPE) to those who are also being aflicted too 🙂 Blessings to you & your family!!

I adore hearing from you, comment away! :)
