Smoky, our family cat, had gotten injured and needed to stay at the vet clinic for several days. Our three children were so concerned that several times a day, my wife and I had to reassure them that Smoky was safe and being cared for by the “animal doctor.”
Finally, we got the call that Smoky was ready to come home. Driving to the vet, it became clear that our four-year-old son, Ryan, had been doing a lot of thinking about Smoky’s absence when he asked, “Mom, what kind of animal is the doctor?”
I hate it when people use big words just to make themselves sound perspicacious.
Thought for the day
Practice the presence of Jesus. When you become aware of God’s presence in your life, fear will go away.
When God is near, you lose your fear. Why? Because God is love, and the Bible says: “There is no fear in love. But perfect love casts out all fear” 1 John 4:18 NIV The more you feel loved by God, the less you’ll fear.
