Blest Sunday: We’re Late But Still Blest

MeOW C’mon Raena, hurry up mommy. Blest Sunday’s almost over. Here we purromissed everypawdy we’d be back fur Blest Sunday, and we almost didn’t make it. Hmmmpht  Mommy, you’ve always said we could count on purromisses like we can count on day turnin’ into night. Ifin we make a purromiss, we always keep it.

     You’re right baby, I do indeed say that. I’m sorry I forgot to pack the computer. When you got sick this past week and then I got sick, the computer was really the last thing on my mind. But, we’re here now and we are most definitely Blest. 

 

          We sure are sissy. What a pawsum weekend we’ve had.

Yeah Raena, me’s so very fankful fur all our Blessings. Fur those of ya’ that don’t follow or aren’t furiends with us on facebook, let me tell ya’ what happened earlier in the week. As ya’ know, we were plannin’ on goin’ to BlogPaws fur at least a day and then pawin’ in to visit one of our long time awnties from facebook. The day befur we were to leave, the lawn crew showed up fur their furst visit of the season and stirred up all the allergens and made me sick. Then, in mommy’s haste to pack, she knocked the shelf containin’ her purrfumes off the wall and one of them broke. It was one of her faves by the way. Anyways, the bedroom and the whole house fur that matter smelled like a Furench whorehouse. No offense intended. We really do like the smell of that purrfume. 

 

          Yeah sissy, but a little goes a long way. That’s the way it is with those ‘spensive purrfumes. Mommy says she’ll purrobably never be able to replace it.

Anyways….(meowmbles to herself), “Who’s meowin’ this story anyhow?  The very next day, the lawn crew showed up yet again. 2 days in a row. T’ween the purrfume and the lawn allergens, all of us got sick. It looked like our trip was off. Fankfully, mommy had the furthought to ask awnty Kat, Bearcat’s mommy to register us when she got there, so we’ll get our swag bag from the confurence. Still, we had so looked furward to a little break. Mommy really needed a break what with all this nonsense goin’ on with her dentures. So, come Furiday, we took off to visit with awnty Nora and Roo at the Cat Motel. Fanks to awnty Cindy fur the green papers she had sent us fur the tip, mommy decided we were goin’ come hell or high water. And ya’ know what? It poured down rain and we nearly froze our tushies off on Caturday, but, we had a great visit. Least mommy did. Raena and me got to spend the weekend in the greatest motel room ever. 

 

          But I’s didn’t get to go shoppin’ fur mine’s birthday purresent sissy. Fanky fanks to awnty Vonda and awnty Anonymous, I’s have birthday money. And mommy said I’s could pick out whatever I’s wanted so long as I’s get somethin’ fur you too. 

 

You’re right Raena, you didn’t get to go shoppin’. but, there wasn’t anywhere to go where we were at anyways; and with all that rain, you wouldn’t have wanted to get out anyways. Besides, mommy purromissed she’d take you shoppin’ when the weather warmed up some. So, you’re still gonna get to pick out your birthday gift, it’s just gonna be a little later.

          I’s can’t wait, sissy. ‘Specially since we shared a couple of our Yeowww nip toys with the kitties at the motel. Mommy said they luvved ‘em. I’s so glad we could share and make a couple of kitties really nip happy.

Me too Raena. Me always gets happy when we share. Well, needless to say, we’re all exhausted. So, we’ll tell ya’ more ‘bout our trip and share more fotos, later. Fur now, we’d just like to fank awnty Nora fur havin’ us fur a visit. We wanna come back when the weather’s better and we can do more visitin’. And we wanna fank you all fur bein’ patient with us while we get caught up and bein’ unnerstandin’ that mommy needed a little time off. We’d also like to remind you all to take a minute today and every day to give Thanks fur the Blessings in your life.

Blest Resurrection Sunday: The Greatest Blessing Ever

RaenaBelle, hurry up!!! Do you know what today is? It’s Resurrection Sunday!!! Today’s the most Blest Sunday there is. We celebrate the fact that Jesus rose from the dead all those years ago so that all could be saved from their sins and spend eternity in heaven ‘stead of hell. No greater Blessing has ever been given. 

 

 Blest Sunday purple kitty clip art graphic

 

 

 

          You’re right sissy. It’s purretty amazin’ that God could luvs this world so much that He would send Jesus to die fur us. A world so full of turmoil and evil. Even so, He saw the good and wanted to make sure that everypawdy had the oppurrtunity to turn away from their evil ways and be what He created them to be; children of God. 

 

 Dezi and Raena with the Easter cross frame with He is Risen

 

 

 

Yep Raena, that’s some kind of luv alright. You know, we’re always meowin’ that Blessings come in many forms, all ya’ have to do is take a minute to see ‘em. Each day is a Blessing that no one is guaranteed. The very air that we breathe, even the storms we don’t like are Blessings. As most everpawdy knows, we’ve been really goin’ thru it lately. But, no matter how bad things may look, there’s always a Blessing to give fanks fur. 

 

 Raena gets loving in mommy A's lap

Lap luvvin’ time is a pawsum Blessing. I’s do luvs mine’s mommy.

 

 

          Fur sure sissy. We’ve got a pawsum luvvin’ mommy, a roof over our heads, good food in our bellehs, the greatest furiends in the universe and a new day to meow ‘bout how much we luvs everypawdy. Ya’ know sissy, I’s was kind’a wonderin’ just what this Easter bunny and huntin’ colored eggs have to do with anythin’?. 

 

 Dezi lays in the liberty cat tree

Our pawsum cat tree, what a Blessing.

 

 

Well Raena, they don’t really have anythin’ to do with the resurrection of Jesus; but, the bunny and those colored eggs symbolize furtility and new beginnings. These were symbols used by the pagans of old and just got incor-purrated into Resurrection Sunday a long long time ago. We don’t actually celebrate that way, but lots of peeps do. Mommy says when she was younger, Easter also meant that she got a new dress fur church and peeps in general could put away their old dark wintry clothes and start wearin’ pastels and whites. Did you know there was a time when nopaawdy wore white till Easter time each year? 

 

 Raena stands on scratcher with paw lifted

 

 

 

          Humans sure have some strange customs, sissy. Guess we would’a been outta fashion what with all our white furs. Anyways, it doesn’t really matter how one celebrates today, we purray that you all have a Blest Resurrection Sunday/Easter.

 

We sure do Raena. And meowin’ of Blessings, we received a few material ones this past week that we need to give fanks fur. Fank you awnty Susan fur the green papers. They are always purreciated. 

 

 Raena checks out all the goodies Cindy sent in the gift box

A gift box fur mommy is a welcome Blessing

 

 

          Yep sissy, and fanky fank ya’ to awnty Cindy and angel Maggie Meme fur the pawsum boxes. They were full of yummy goodies. The foto doesn’t show everythin’. There was 2 full boxes of goodies. Mommy even shared a string cheese with me. I’s do luvs me some cheese. MOL Not as much as I’s luvs rabbit, but it’s fur sure in mine’s top ten fave foods.

 

And did you see those cutesy little socklettes they sent to mommy, Raena? She luvved ‘em.

 

          And don’t furget the green papers, sissy. They wanna help us get to BlogPaws almost as much as we wanna go. 

 

 Dezi selfie

 

 

 

We’ve got our paws crossed that’s fur sure. Anyways, we need to wrap this up. It’s the last day of Campmeetin’ at our church. We are fur sure the most Blest kitties in the universe. Fank you all fur bein’ our furiends and pawrt of our family. We luv you all and purray that God will meet your every need. As always, we wanna remind you to take a minute today and every day to give Thanks fur the Blessings in your lives.

Blest Sunday: Strollin’ And The Mystery Blogger Award

RaenaBelle, hurry up. It’s time fur our Blest Sunday posty. Mommy says the weather guessers have said it’s gonna storm; so we’ve gotta get our posty written befur the heavens start rumblin’. 

 

 Blest Sunday purple kitty clip art graphic

 

 

          I’s comin’ sissy. What’s with the stormin’ meows? I’s don’t want anymore storms. I’s thought spring was s’posed to be here?.

 

Yeah, well, spring or not, you know it storms here a lot. 

 

 Dezi lays in wheelchair watching Raena inside the stroller

 

 

 

          That I’s do, sissy. That’s kind’a why I’s don’t get why you wanna run hide when you hear the furst rumble in the sky? You’d think you’d be used to it by now. After all, it’s not like you were born yesfurday. 

 Dezi's profile looking out into the street from the stroller while outside

 

 

 

Uh? Me thinks you’re callin’ me old Raena. And ifin you are, that’s not very nice. Besides, how many times does me have to tell ya’, me’s not hidin’. Me’s makin’ sure you and mommy are safe from any critters that might try to get in the house and hide unner the bed. Anyways, me was really happy to see mr. Sunshine come out this week. It warmed up enuff fur mommy to take us fur a few strolls.

 

Raena sits in stroller while outside

 

 

 

          What fun we had, right sissy? I’s luvs to go strollin’ with mommy. I’s even met a couple of the neighbor ladies. They wanted to make over me and pet me and talk ‘bout how soft mine’s fur is. I’s wasn’t real fond of all those hands comin’ at me all at once, but I’s sucked it up and let ‘em manhandle me. I’s sure mine’s beauty made their day.

 

 

Dezi looks over her shoulder while in the stroller outside

Check out the stroller’s tether (black strap) attached to harness.

 

 

 

Hmmmmpht  Conceded much Raena?

 

Raena looks out of stroller

 

 

 

          I’s don’t even know what that means, sissy. Anyways, I’s heard all kinds of noises and even saw a herd of deer out in our woods. Did you see ‘em when you went out?

 

 Dezi looks out of stroller at the bobcat in the woods

Look’it mommy, it’s the bobcat!!!

 

 

Nope Raena, me didn’t see any deer, but me did see that old bobcat we used to feed. Least me thinks it was her. She was watchin’ mommy and me from the woods. She had a purretty good hidin’ spot, we almost missed her. Unfurtunately, mommy scared her when she went fumblin’ fur the camera. Then when she tried to take a foto of that old bobcat runnin’ away, the camera slipped and all mommy got was a foto of the sun settin’. It’s actually a really nice foto, just not what mommy was tryin’ fur. 

 

 Sun Set from the stroller

 

 

 

          Yeah sissy, mommy’s not the greatest fotographer in the world. Least she tries. I’s guess that’s what counts. And, mommy said it was good to see the bobcat. Maybe we’ll see more of her this year. I’s not got to meet her yet.

 

Dezi rests her head over the edge of the stroller while outside

 

 

 

And ifin mommy has anythin’ to say ‘bout it Raena, you won’t ever get to meet her. Mommy says she’s not like us. Even tho’ she looks furiendly, she’s a wild cat and not meant to play with us.

 

 

 

          Really sissy? You call me wild all the time, what’s the difference?

 

 Dezi looks full on at the camera while sitting ion the stroller outside

 

 

 

Your wild is kitten energy Raena. Her wild means she’s not used to hangin’ with peeps and she actually kills most everythin’ she eats. X’cept those times when everypawdy ‘round here puts out food fur her. She’s kind’a like our lion and tiger cousins you watch on the teevee; pretty to look at, but not suited fur home livin’. We’re so Blest to be homey kitties and have such a pawsum home with mommy.

 

          We are at that. It’s just too bad sissy, I’s sure wanted to meet her.

 

 Dezi looks out of the side of the stroller while outside

 

 

 

Well, maybe you’ll see her one day while you’re out strollin’ with mommy. You can wave to her, just ‘member to keep your distance. In other words, stay in the stroller where you’re safe.

 

 Close up of Raena's face in stroller

 

 

 

 

          I’s do feel safe in our new stroller sissy. I’s luvs the tethers. They’re strong enuff to make sure we can’t escape or get hurt, but still long enuff to let us move all ‘round and take in the view. I’s just wish the wind hadn’t been blowin’ so hard when I’s was out.

 

 Dezi looks out the side of the stroller while outside

 

 

 

Me too, Raena. All that wind was blowin’ our winter furs all over the place. Still, it was really nice to get out and take in some furesh air. The neighbor even came out to see me. Mommy wouldn’t let me get out and walk ‘round tho’. She said the exterminator had just sprayed the yard and she didn’t want me gettin’ poison on me’s paws. It’s the furst time he’s sprayed the outside in five years. We hope that helps cut down on all the scary bugs that try to get in the house like the scorpions, spiders and fire ants. 

 

          Fleas and ticks too sissy. We fur sure don’t want any of those. 

 

Sure ‘nuff Raena. Altho’ me’s purretty sure mommy will take care of that fur us. Anyways, we are so Blest that we got to go out fur those amazin’ strolls this past week. Me can’t wait fur more.

 

 Raena looks out the stroller while outside

 

 

 

          Me either sissy, me either. Meowin of Blessings, we wanna fanky fank uncle Pete, Timmy and the furmily fur the green papers fur somethin’ special. Mommy didn’t say what she was gonna get us yet, but she purromissed to get us somethin’ we’d really like. And fanky fanks to awnty Lene fur the green papers fur me to get a bacon burger the next time we go to Ardmore. That stinkin’ dentist office has upset mommy so much at her last few visits that we didn’t even get to stop fur a special treat. Now mommy has no x’cuse, awnty Lene said so. 

 

You better get enuff  to bring home some fur me too Raena.

 

          I’s will sissy, don’t worry. 

 

 Close up of Dezi sitting pretty in the stroller outside

 

 

 

Me also wants to fank all of you fur bein’ our furiends. We fank God fur all of you each and every day. We wanna remind you all to take a minute today and every day to give Thanks fur the Blessings in your lives. We’d also like to fank our sweet furiend Ali fur nominatin’ us fur the Mystery Blogger Award. Ali be a fellow Cat Scout and gawjus tabby. She doesn’t blog a lot, but you can check her out here. We think we’re s’posed to tell 3 things ‘bout us. So, nummer 1 is that we are Blest. Nummer 2, we luv all our furiends.
