Reflecting, Looking Ahead...

Choosing this plant for our reflection meeting,

the three of us sat down for a bit.

We reminisced,

Ollie looking a bit weary from all the playing and naughtiness...

Augustus, a bit concerned about tomorrow and what it might bring!
We all then looked ahead, the only way to look,

and we thought of this:

"We must always look ahead and seek to accomplish in the future what we may have failed to do in the past. Failures, tests, and trials, if we use them correctly, can become the means of purifying our spirits, strengthening our characters, and enable us to rise to greater heights of service."

(From a letter dated 14 December 1941 written on behalf of Shoghi Effendi to an individual)


As the sun was setting on this pleasant Sunday, Gus cuddled on his wall

while Ollie relaxed indoors!

Smooch, smooch, his eyes are saying. : )

Cat dudes filled their tired paws with lovely kisses and wished all a delightful week ahead!

Ciao!

  6. Oliie looks like the wise sage who knows all, and prefers to speak only when absolutely necessary. Agustus looks like the punk teenager who is always looking for trouble, and is endlessly restless. That little face of his has mischief ALL over it...Ollie is way too wise and sweet to be naughty! hehehe

  8. Amanda, that Ollie is no sage, however, he has many plots in his head, constantly. August does become punkish outside, he likes for other cats to respect him as a badass! Indoors, he is a babe.

    LBR, I so know what you mean...I think he is sending you subliminal messages!

    xo
