RE: my parents claim a miracle
My cat wanted attention today at 2pm, and as I’m working nights, think 2am…
He prayed to the cat gods by tap dancing on my face, and he received attention!
And then as by some miracle I couldn’t sleep any more, so he got to share my sandwich too!

All praise to the cat gods!

Tell your dad if he had just cut the tree down when it was in his way, not leaving it due to some random shape, he would have found the gravel long ago.
Months without worrying about where to get it from and extra cash with no church tithe.

Sand and gravel underneath a tree? It is almost as if that might have been why the tree was there since sand and gravel are more permeable and enable water to flow through easier.

Yeah, I think the gravel should have fell from the sky into a neat little pile on their acreage ready to distribute to the people. That would be a true miracle.

Preferably in tightly sealed 50kg bags with the family logo on it Tongue

Not the family logo but a cross with a gravel mound underneath it.

He talked about having prayed and prayed for a job or source of income as well as praying to solve their problem of needing sand and gravel for projects but not having the money to buy any. Then he went out digging and searching on his 140 acres of mountainous property - weeks go by without finding anything so he prayed again. He didn't want to move this special tree that went across his road with another tree growing perpendicular out of it (like a cross he says) but he was tired of moving it every time he had to drive the tractor so he decided to dig there. Lo and Behold he found gravel! his problem is solved - he has gravel to work with as well as to sell. He called me all enthusiastic to tell me of this "miracle". I just rolled my eyes and said how nice. He ended with God always provides for his believers.

I wish I could have come back with some kind of argument.

What would you have said?

That's so nice of God to answer prayer about gravel, while children in Africa are dying out of starvation ; x

They should ask for gravel to sell.

Cats frighten me. They seem to always be looking at me trying to size me up for dinner. "That fat man could feed me for a long time."

Dogs, on the other hand, look at me like "I hope that fat man's not sizing me up for dinner." We have a lot of dogs.

As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.

I have heard it said "If your cats were bigger, they'd eat you".

RE: my parents claim a miracle
It depends on your relationship to them. as diligent hunters they do still mark the importance of others alongside themselves. Cats do not go berserk. They can understand if you benefit them more alive, as long as they aren't hungry. But yeah i take comfort in the fact that if I died my cat would eat me =p and i give the same respect to her.

I'm not a non believer, I believe in the possibility of anything. I just don't let the actuality of something be determined by a 3rd party.
