Love and Marriage...without cats.


Tomorrow is my 14th wedding anniversary, in honor of my marriage , here is one of two MICROBURSTS! on my marriage I am going to post.

Forgive and Forget?
Okay, at least forgive and bury it. Way back in the beginning... well almost. Way back in the beginning of mine and Que’sour marriage, we had a cat that shall forever be known as the worst dumbest cat in the world.
A pet store was giving away free kittens (it was a bad sign for her that she was free), and they were long haired so I wanted one! Well, Que didn't feel my passion for this kitten, especially since we had a cat and a dog. However, I begged, pleaded, “pleased,” and made puppy dog faces until he gave in.

You have to have forgiveness to give forgiveness and you have to give forgiveness to get forgiveness.
Honestly, I think the kitten was brain damaged. That was the dumbest cat in the world. Dumb as dirt. At any rate, after almost a year and more than enough grief, the cat went away. Praise God.
Nevertheless, her legend took a lot longer to die. For five or six years, every time I wanted something that my husband didn't want, he would say, “Remember the cat?” and I would give in.
Obviously, he had better judgment than I did!
That isn't really true. My darling Que was using the cat to manipulate me so he could get his way. He has since repented and realized,

True love keeps no record of wrongs!
I Corinthians 13:5

Maybe you can’t forgive and forget it, but you can forgive and let it go!
