I was at work when the excitement began. My wife Lynette and my daughter Amy played the mid-wife role.
This is a first time experience for Amy and she is handling it with flying colors (Lily and the kittens have set-up camp in her bedroom...Lily's choice).
They are all so adorable (two whites/three gray and black mixed), and Momma and kittens are doing fine.
One thing that has jumped out at me is how Lily (a very aggressive cat), has - overnight - become such a nurturing and caring mommy. To watch this transformation from caring only about herself to caring nothing about her and all about the kittens is amazing.
Such a testimony of a mother's love.
And if we look really hard (okay, we don't have to look so hard after all), it is such a testimony of the sacrifice the Father gave when He gave us His only Son.
For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. - John 3:16 (NLT)
