Hillary is Dead

In her short life she had been a source of much joy to the entire family. She had her own beautiful personality and expressed it in many ways. She not only had a beautiful personality but she also was beautiful. Hillary was one of our cats and was six months old when she was run over early Monday morning. It is surprising how sad you can become over the loss of a cat!

The world is a little less beautiful than it was prior to Monday. However, I realize that since we were going to have Hillary's stitches from being spayed taken out that afternoon that it could be that Hillary somehow saved us from some problems. Since because of road construction it now takes 45 minutes to drive to the vet's location many things could have happened. I tried to start one of our cars this afternoon and the battery is dead. Which means that if I had had trouble at the vet's with the car or on the way that Jeanie would have had to come and pick up the cat while I was taking care of the car trouble. That would have meant that we both would have been traveling on what is sometimes a dangerous road. I think that Romans 8:28 is true and it could be that Hillary fulfilled her purpose in life by saving ours. Maybe we will know someday when we no longer see through a glass darkly. Thank God for all of His creatures and for one very special little creature named, Hillary!!
