Even though we have a cat and a dog, the children have been asking for either a bird or a bunny for a couple of weeks now. (The plea for a horse has been for years!) There for a little while one of them was praying for a bunny or a bird. Each time, I kept reminding them that we simply travel to much at this point in our lives to have any more animals. I remember specifically telling them that the only way we would get a bird or a bunny would be if it was free and it just landed on our door steps.
So, imagine my surprise yesterday morning when I stepped out to get the mail and a rabbit was on my porch! At that moment, I went to the very depth of my being and said, "Lord,You have got to be kidding!" Due to the thunderstorms and rain, I took her in but I knew immediately this had to be someone's pet. So, we waited after the storms to ask around.
Clover was very cuddly and soft! And, so while I read "Stewart Little" aloud, everyone took turns having cuddle time. She stayed for the afternoon.
We did return Clover even though our neighbor assured me that if we really wanted a bunny we could have her. But, we know that the 4 Children that are my 4 Children's ages would miss her greatly! So, we said we would bunny-sit anytime they need us to.
Clover was extremely tempting. So, the entire day, I had to conjure up visions of her multiplying and keep reminding myself that I am moving sooner rather than later, camping for months in a camper, and have no idea where I am going to live once we get to Beloved's next spot. I guess it would be safe to say, I would be more tempted to buy a horse even though God's little creatures are so precious.
