He's the Cats' Meow

The Popkes with Taylor (Molly was a little camera-shy)
Over the last eight months Klaira and Maddie have stood quietly in the background, watching as God put all the details of our move to Alaska in place.  They willingly gave away most of their belongings, they accepted the loss of the comforts of home, and they quietly bore the burden of saying good-bye to their friends and Grandparents.  They never got angry and they never complained.  They watched God answer all of our prayers, all that is except for the prayer that was most dear to their hearts:  a good home for their beloved cats, Molly and Taylor.

Outwardly Steve and I reminded the girls that God had taken care of all the details thus far and we assured them that He would also provide a loving home for Molly and Taylor; inwardly, we pleaded with God to answer their one simple prayer.

It is said that God is never early and never late, He is always right on time.  But when your child's innocent faith hangs in the balance, it is so easy to want to hurry Him!  One week before we moved, God answered our prayer in a big way--not only did He provide a home for Molly and Taylor, He also solidified our girls' faith in His ability to provide for us when we are obedient to His calling in our lives.

A very special thank you to the Popkes for providing the purr-fect home for Molly and Taylor.  And thank you, God, for showing us yet again that you are faithful.
