When I first posted the photograph of “Wonder” on my blog, I was not looking for a home for her. It was too early, in my mind, for that. So when I got an email from friends, Patty and Mark, saying that they had been looking for an orange kitten and would like to adopt her, I was surprised, pleased, a little sad, happy, relieved….
It seems hard enough to place a friendly kitten much less a feral one and yet before I even looked, an answer came…for all of us. Her new family took her (oops…turns out that she is a he!) to the vet on Friday. He is healthy and the vet thought that he had a great personality…so sweet!
I got a wonderful email this morning from Patty and Mark saying that he is sitting on their laps eating out of a spoon. So many “intentions” were answered without struggle: Wonder found a home. Patty and Mark got the kitten they were looking for. And Jack and I finally (after way too much time!) cleaned out our garage because we were having trouble getting around in there when it came time to feed him. When things like this happen, it reaffirms my faith that something much greater than me is working “behind the scenes” for the good of everyone. I can take a deep breath and relax into the mystery and wonder of it all.
And it shall come to pass that, before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear. Isaiah 65:24
