Gifts from Joey

By Karen Quinn

Real-Life True Story:

“Obedience of the Law of Nature.   We do not need to energize the Essence of Being.  It is already Big with Power. Miracles of God are on the blushing rose, the falling rain, the dawn of the morning and the twilight of evening.  Everything is an aspect of the timeless Presence whose life and Spirit overarches, undergirds, and interpenetrates all things.  Nature is the garment of God. Unlimited Beliefs, Unlimited Possibilities.  Negative and positive conditions are related to the same cause.”

     ...Thomas Troward

Let Me Tell you a little bit about my Joey………

ON MARCH 21, 2009 I WOKE UP FROM A DEAD SLEEP AT 2 A.M. IN THE MORNING TO FIND THAT MY HOUSE WAS ON FIRE.  THERE WERE FIVE TO SIX FOOT FLAMES RAGING OUTSIDE MY BEDROOM WINDOW.  I WOKE MY HUSBAND AND IMMEDIATELY TRIED TO FIND MY THREE CATS.  WHERE  DO CATS HIDE IN A 4,000 SQ FT HOUSE.  ARE THEY HIDING DOWNSTAIRS OR UPSTAIRS?   THE WALL OF SOLID SMOKE PREVENTED US FROM SEARCHING THE BASEMENT.  WITHIN 10 MINUTES THE UPPER LEVEL WAS FILLED WITH SMOKE……WHERE WERE BY BEAUTIFUL CATS?  WE HAD TO VACATE THE HOUSE SO WE GRABBED THE GARDEN HOSE AND WENT TO PUT THE FIRE OUT IN THE BASEMENT OFFICE WHILE WE WAITED FOR THE VOLUNTEER FIRE DEPARTMENT.

I REMEMBER PRAYING  THAT I BE ABLE TO FEEL AND KNOW  GOD’S PRESENCE , THAT I WOULD KNOW GOD WAS WITH ME  IN A LANGUAGE I COULD UNDERSTAND. I REPEATED IT OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN WHILE I WAS WAITING FOR THE FIREMEN TO PUT THE REST OF THE FIRE OUT.  THE SILENCE WAS DEAFENING. I HAVE NO CONCEPT OF TIME PASSING, BUT  IT WAS NOT LONG BEFORE THE KIOWA FIRE CHIEF BROUGHT JOEY OUT INTO MY ARMS.  HE WAS FOUND TRYING TO MAKE HIS WAY UPSTAIRS, PROBABLY LOOKING FOR US. .  A WHITE, BLUE EYED KITTY ALL WET AND COVERED IN BLACK SMOKE

JOEY WAS A HOUSE CAT.  I HAD ADOPTED JOEY AT 6 WEEKS ALONG WITH HIS LITTER MATE JOSHIE.  HE HAD NEVER BEEN OUT OF THE HOUSE. THERE ARE LOTS OF OWLS, COYOTE, AND FOXES WHERE WE LIVE.

JOEY NEVER LEFT MY ARMS FOR THREE DAYS.  HE RODE IN THE CAR FOR THE FIRST TIME IN HIS LIFE, BACK AND FORTH TO PARKER TO KIOWA. HE WAS SO CALM & TRUSTING AS HE LOOKED OUT THE WINDOW AT ALL THE CARS PASSING BY.  I CAN ONLY IMAGINE WHAT THIS HAS BEEN LIKE FOR HIM CONSIDERING HE IS A CAT.  EVEN NOW HE LOVES JUMPING IN MY ARMS WHEN I ARRIVE BACK TO OUR CAMPING TRAILER WHERE JOEY, BOB & I HAVE LIVED FOR GOING ON 24+ WEEKS NOW.    HE LIKES TO PUT HIS PAW ON MY HANDS AND SLEEP CHEEK TO CHEEK.  I THOUGHT FOR DAYS BOB & I WERE COMFORTING AND TAKING CARE OF JOEY,…….IN ESSENCE HE HAS BEEN CARING AND COMFORTING US.  TO THIS DAY PEOPLE ALWAYS COME TO OUR CAMPER TO SAY HI TO JOEY.  THEY KNOW HIS LIGHT.

Let me describe my Spiritual Cat…………….

He is the Nature of God……

THESE ARE MY DAILY GIFTS from JOEY.
