Update: Grace Continues To Happen
I want to thank everyone who has sent me supportive emails, as well as left comments here on the blog, as I’ve gone through the separation from Michael and the move to the new apartment. Thanks also to the wonderful friends who came out on Saturday to help Michael and me move: Celeste & Mitch, Adam, Carl, my brother Danny and his wife Beverly, and my brother Jason.
Kato has not yet figured out his new window cat door. I think it reminds him too much of the carrier we put him in for the move over here. Don’t tell him, but he’ll also be getting into the dreaded carrier next month for his annual visit to the vet! He is frustrated by the lack of free access to the outdoors, although he could have his freedom to come and go if he only knew how to use his cat door. (There's a parable there...) Overall, though, Kato is adjusting well to our new home, and there are plenty of patches of sunlight for him to lie in and plenty of birds in the surrounding woods to keep him entertained.
This morning I sat out on my new porch and read some of The Creed: What Christians Believe and Why It Matters, by Luke Timothy Johnson, while drinking my morning coffee. The trees in the parking lot and surrounding the apartment complex are starting to lose their leaves, but there are still quite a few bright red and orange leaves in display. The sun is shining brightly, and it’s a beautiful Autumn day. Grace continues to happen.
