When you get ready to leave for a long weekend, you really realize how many pets you have. I farmed out the hamster and the frog (yes, we "inherited" one of the class frogs from Jack's teacher!), hired a dog sitter for Vince, and asked the neighbors to come over and love on the cat. (Is it a sign of how much I love the animal if I use their name vs. their species?) Whew! I did ask my sister-in-law to keep the hamster... you know, the same sister-in-law who left her beloved Bichon with me when SHE went to FL... I'm thinking maybe the hamster will disappear for a few days while I'm gone, just so I can know how it felt. hehehe Little does she know that was my evil plan all along. bwahahahahaha
"May God, who put all things together, makes all things whole, Who made a lasting mark through the sacrifice of Jesus, the sacrifice of blood that sealed the eternal covenant, Who led Jesus, our Great Shepherd, up and alive from the dead, now put you together, provide you with everything you need to please Him, make us into what gives Him most pleasure, by means of the sacrifice of Jesus, the Messiah. All glory to Jesus forever and always! Oh, yes, yes, yes!"
