OK, back again after being gone for a few days and I always read backwardz…and wow, Laska is in serious mode today and it brings tears. Bless that soopeereor Luv Kitty and her simple but deep insight!!! Hugs and tears.


Craig July 20, 2011 at 2:08 pm

humility is a hard lesson to learn A this one took me up a little bit to – it’s Laska’s first foray into writing on a serious topic. God bless you A.

Laska, U R indeed a soupeereeur kat. The gratest 1 eye hav evver knowed! U tiipe good, lurn good, thynk good, an U R good 2 yur peepul pursun. Awl that cownts and U get poynts 4 that. Thynk stuff is hawrd 2 du. An wen U see gray toi with fluffy tale not ever waik up, even peeple hav 2 thynk reelee hard. Sum things R bigger than peepul even. And sum things R moor portant than Laska AND peepul. Humbul is nowing this. But du not worry abowt yur peepul purson not waking up and whu will fill yur boles. God sed He feeds those
toyes in the ayre that wissell and eye am shur He fills yur bole, 2. Wen wee trust (theyr’s nuther hard werd), and wen wee no things like not waking up and can’t fill yur own bowl, then U R humble. Just scerach yer eer a littel, suun it will awl make cents!


Craig July 21, 2011 at 1:30 pm

Cora, Laska thinks you for the kind words – and for explaining things to him a little bit. We watched the first Narnia movie together – and so now he feels a little bit like an invincible Lion. However – the bad news is that although we linked up with Ann – with Laska’s fancy new linking up graphic – we put the link to the preview of the post – and not the actual post itself – so anyone who clicks on it gets a message saying that they don’t have permission to view the page – and nothing can be done – believe me – there is much sadness in the village – and some blog fodder. I heart that you’re here. Thank you Cora – and Laska also says that your Laskish is getting much better ^.^


Cora July 20, 2011 at 6:53 pm

PS: I luv yur ID tag that givs U gest statis. It luks veery portant!


Craig July 23, 2011 at 10:46 am

Thank you Cora – we worked a long time on that – he wanted his picture to look pensive, but not worried, confident, but not smug. I think we got it.


Debbie July 21, 2011 at 12:08 am

Cora . . .your comment is like a beautiful post!
Dear Laska . . . you are so brave and smart, in a humble way. Thank you so much for helping me thing about being humble today and what that means. I’m so sorry about the gray toy. We had one once and raised it from a baby, then set it free again. His name was Tum-Tum and you would’ve loved him too. Our kitties would hang out by his cage and play with him.
God bless you, Craig, and all that you do for us , and for Him!


Craig July 21, 2011 at 1:37 pm

Debbie, I told Laska about Tum-Tum and it obviously made him feel better. Thank you Debbie – really, thank you – and God Bless.


Kris July 22, 2011 at 6:51 am

This was so good. such wisdom and insight from the feline. Humility is hard, HARD! And my obnoxious pride, so big, making it that much harder… thanks, Laska, for the lessons. I am theenking aboutz zis thingz. (clearly, I will leave the proper wording to you, from now on;) Many blessings, brother.


Craig July 23, 2011 at 10:49 am

humility IS hard – pride sneak send in 1 million different ways that we don’t even realize. And I’ve said this before – but I guess it bears repeating, I think that if love of money is the root of all evil – then a humble heart is the root of all good. Oh, and Laska wants to type…

thaynk u kris, u r nise yore laskish iz betr then u think – menee blessingz tu u tuu.^.^


Lisa notes... July 27, 2011 at 1:47 pm

An epiphany on humility. Good stuff. I actually was reading two books on humility just this morning: one by C.J. Mahaney and the other by Andrew Murray. Humility is definitely something we keep in short supply but that we need in abundance. Thanks for prompting me to seek more, Craig!


Craig July 29, 2011 at 2:23 pm

Lisa, I think I’ve read that Andrew Murray book. I’ve said it before – but I think it’s really true – so I’ll say it again – if love of money is the root of all evil – then I think humility he just may be the root of all good. Thank you for dropping by Lisa – I heart when you drop by! God bless and keep you and yours.

Isn’t the beginning of wisdom the realization that one doesn’t know everything? That gray kitty has the beginnings of great wisdom! My kitty, well, she likes to catch little brown things with white spots (chipmonks) who have the beginning of wisdom – they play opossum – until our scardy kitty lets down her guard (usually because sticks come hurling at her or someone shouts at her to stop playing mean with the cute little chipmonk.

I realized long ago that I do not have all the answers. I am so glad humility came early – otherwise, I would have been painfully humbled by my sons who now, sadly, realize that I do not have all the answers – and love to remind me that I do not know everything!!!. . . But God does – and that is all I need to know!

Hope your kitty perks up!


Craig July 29, 2011 at 2:28 pm

first of all Maryleigh, I apologize for being so late in my reply – the hurrieder I go the behinder I get – so – sorry, really sorry. And yes – the gray kitty does have the beginnings of wisdom :-)

thank you for sharing your kittty / chipmunk story – that actually made me laugh. Awesome! And Godspeed with your sons who are at “that” age. Mama knows a lot more than they think mama does, though :-) and Laska is already perked up – even love kitties have short memories for that kind of stuff – cats still tend to be a little me centered – no matter how hard they try to love. Thank you, and God bless and keep you and yours.


Christine July 28, 2011 at 5:41 am

So clever! And such wisdom. 😉


Craig July 29, 2011 at 2:30 pm

Christine, thank you – and the love Kitty says to say thank you too – and that he IS awfully wise – but he also said to tell you that he said that and a humble manner :-) God bless you and all of yours.


Craig July 29, 2011 at 2:30 pm

PS – I’m really sorry for being so late replying to your comment – sorry, really sorry.


Nacole@sixinthesticks July 28, 2011 at 3:47 pm

yes, i agree, a clever little post. and Laska is so cute. i heart kitties. yes, a good thing to remember and hold on to–we dont know everything, and this is the beginning to humility and true wisdom–love what bluecottonmemory had to say about that. and we can grow in our humility by resting in that God does know everything and He is our source for everything–our portion. what do we need besides Him? when we are resting in these things, it is so much easier to love like He loves and how we desire to love. this was good for me today. thanks.
(and i suppose you were never able to link up–oh well–ive missed many a week, and when i DO link up, im always late;))


Craig July 29, 2011 at 2:35 pm

the love Kitty is 100% adorable – I don’t have any children so you know how that goes – he’s my child. And that is such a good point – to be humble enough to know that we don’t know everything – in fact we know very little no matter how much we know – but we’re sons and daughters of the one who knows ALL things. That was a good reminder – thank you Nacole!

And I did link up – but I put the link to the “preview” of the post –and there was no way to change it. So when people clicked the link they got the message, “you do not have permission to view this page” – nice. huh? they probably thought I was being really rude.

Oh well, you came and read anyway – God bless you and Nacole.


Nacole@sixinthesticks August 2, 2011 at 6:09 pm

oh yes, i knew that. i read your comment on my blog that week, explaining the little mix-up, but that you were still over there at my corner, reading. i felt sad because i knew that you really wanted it to work. i hope you saw my comment bc it was meant to encourage you! we all have little mess-ups…but i am going to start reading about breaking the horses. up til now, i havent had time to read, but i think it is important that i do! i deal with this as well–i think we all do! one very, very good way (and the apostle Paul tells us to do this–and this is what our Lord used against Satan, so its good enough for me!!) , i believe the only way, to fight the voices is with scripture. just a humble thought–but you could write it and post it all over your home, next to your posts of the voices. and one by one, you could begin to take the voices down and just have the scripture up. i used to post scripture. maybe this will help. anyway, just a very humble suggestion. i am in no position to help anyone–but maybe that is why i want to 😉 take care, Craig, and i will be reading.


Craig August 2, 2011 at 7:10 pm

so what you do id find a scripture that counters the voice? or just general scriptures? THe voices are going to be countered with positive voices – and in the end I think I’ll keep both – that will be the final “broken horse” – including scripture will help too. I’ll be thinking about that. Let me know if I have it straight Nacole. God Bless you!!


Nacole@sixinthesticks August 2, 2011 at 9:52 pm

yes, my thought was specific scriptures that target that wrong thought. the word of God is so powerful. the study itself would be a deeply changing thing for you, i think. but thats just my thoughts. it helped me when i did a study of scriptures and words…matter of fact, i need to do that again…so maybe i will take my own advice…starting tonight–like i said, ive been really crabby lately 😉 your ideas all sound great. and again, this is a very humble suggestion–i am sure when i read all of the parts of breaking the horse you would have helped me much more than i could you! blessings to you too, Craig!
