Unity in spite of Diversity

Someone dropped a kitten off Sunday morning.  Guess who does NOT like him?
Results of elections aside, the most important thing we've learned is we are a country that is deeply divided, and right down the middle.  Most of us hold convictions of which we are convinced and can not easily understand those who see it differently.

Yet we do.  What are we going to do about it?

We want to yell and scream.  That won't allow us to get along.  Some how we must find a language to speak to each other so we can better understand.  To me, there is no human answer.  We must pray and seek God's mercy to be patient and loving in the way that He does and we can not.

"There are two ways of meeting difficulties.  You alter the difficulties or you alter yourself to meet them."  Phyllis Bottome

Now, go play nice.

  1. Great lesson, now if I can live by it. Yes the "new kittens" I bring home to foster are always met with lots of hissing and very little compassion from the other cats. Which by the way were strays and/or adopted. You would think they would welcome these newbies with love and licks, but that usually takes some time. I feel for you getting these drop-offs. Aggravating to say the least.
