364. Until one has loved an animal a part of one’s soul remains unawakened. ~Anatole France

If the pull
of the outside world
is strong,
there is also a pull
towards the world of the human.
A cat may disappear on its own errands,
but sooner or later,
it returns once again for a little while,
to greet us with
its own type of love.
~Lloyd Alexander

The earth is filled with your love, Lord… ~Psalm 119:64 ✝

Thank you, Lord Jesus, that you save, you heal, you restore, and you reveal Your Father’s heart to us! You have captured me with grace and I’m caught in Your infinite embrace!

    • I did take a look at your post and loved what you said at the end. Great post, Doda! Like you, I think, Mr. France hit that nail squarely on the head with his statement about loving animals. Love, Natalie 🙂
