Pet Stories: In Your Own Words
Kit was a neighborhood stray, who I believed was abandoned by her owners. She would come to my door and meow and because I have always had a closeness to animals would leave food and water out for her.
She came to me at a time when I was not feeling very good about where I was in my life. My financial situation was looking very grim and I was very near to having to move because I needed to cut down on expenses and I was worried about how I would feed myself. It was a day that God gave me the greatest awareness.
Kit meowed at my door for food. I had made the decision to not feed her and then she would leave. I did not want the responsibility of caring for an animal, when I was in a place that I was not doing a good job of caring for myself. As hard as it was to ignore her, I could not ignore her pleas for food. As I looked at her and our eyes met, I became aware of something. This could be me, standing outside alone, asking for help and I could be denied food or lodging. It was then that I knew that no matter what, I would care for her and she would always be housed and fed, and not feel abandoned or rejected or alone, as I had felt.
I prayed and asked God that I would always have enough to care for her. It is said that when we give of ourselves freely and with love, it will come back to us multiplied. And that is what happened to me. I received a cheque for $l,000 in the mail, was offered a part time job and the most precious gift was the generosity of my son, who helped me financially for a year until I could get back to a place of security and stability.
What did I learn from this experience? Kit had shown me the way to ask and it will be given to you, seek and you will find, knock and the door will be opened to you.
Kit did not stay with me....She tore through the screen one night and I have not seen her since. I believe she was an earthly angel sent to help me and I was truly blessed for the day she came and showed me to have faith and trust, that God is the Infinite source and supply.
