Our George

 It is with great sadness that our beloved cat George, passed away on Saturday night. Jon was really sick last week, and we combined has a rough week, due to me being really busy, and Jon being sick. 
 On Friday he started acting weird, but he was still in that weird kitten/ cat stage, so I thought nothing of it. On Saturday he was really slow, and was acting like he had to go to the bathroom and couldn't. We had a full Saturday due to work and a Christmas dinner that night. When we came home he was laying down and wouldn't move, though still alive looking at us as we were trying to figure out what to do. It was late at that point, so there was not much we could do. So we made him comfortable and went to bed. Jon woke up early as he always does on Sundays for church. He went to check on him, and came back and told me he had died during the night. I am 90% sure he may have eaten a plant in the back yard that may have been poisonous. 
 We are very sad. He had such a fun personality that we both loved.  As I was folding laundry this morning, I was noticing the absence of George. That was the time he would sit next to me and pounce on any of the laundry I had folded. We know the Lord has a purpose, but it is sad.

that is sad... your faith will grow as you trust the Lord. We are in life's journey, and 'all these things work together for good'.. doesn't mean that they will be good, just that they can work to good.
Wish you a lovely day. :-)
