“DING, dong bell, a cat is in the well ”.
I often wonder how much these old nursery rhymes have a profound effect upon our grown up lives. In the one mentioned above, you have one child throwing the cat in the well and another rescuing it, so is it any wonder that so many in our nation are animal lovers whilst others are so cruel to their pets.
Recently it has been heart warming to read of a number of dogs that have sensed that their owners have some medical condition, which had not been previously diagnosed and therefore caused the people to seek medical advice and treatment.
Pets can bring so much comfort and enjoyment, especially to those, of all ages, who are housebound or ill, bringing a closeness, love and affinity between animal and human.
We live in a world, which in many ways seems devoid of real love, with so much disharmony around.
Jesus Christ came into a disharmonious world in order to bring the love of God into our lives so that we can live in peace with one another.
Sadly this is not always the case and there is so much disunity among us causing problems in all aspects of life.
We need to be those who instead of “throwing the cat in the well’ are more intent on helping those who are in need and cannot help themselves.
The Christian message is one of love, joy and peace, showing the reality of a living, loving God.
