Patience



Hope is patience with the lamp lit. ~Tertullian

Here is our sweet Sunny watching Phil eat a plate of vanilla ice-cream on a waffle. He never mewed. He never put a paw out. He never lunged at the dish. He stayed on the end table and watched each bite. If there was anyone around who was going to jump Phil for the ice-cream, it was me. Fortunately, he was not bothered by either of us. Sunny is our sweet boy.


“Be patient with each person, attentive to individual needs. And be careful that when you get on each other’s nerves you don’t snap at each other. Look for the best in each other, and always do your best to bring it out.”
1 Thessalonians 5

Well I hope you were both rewarded for not jumping Phil...lol
Sunny looks so sweet. I think I do detect a little pleading in those eyes :)

Awwwww Sunny is so sweet! Love all the pictures of him watching every move of ice cream on a waffle :-) Glad he (and you!) didn't jump Phil for ice cream. LOL!

A patient cat? I never knew there was such a thing LOL! I want to pounce on that ice cream right now.

Sandra said...

so pretty, Sunny and the ice cream... lol on you jumping Phil for the ice cream. made me laugh and heave a sigh of relief that you were not eating it.... why ruin a good waffle with ice cream.... i love ice cream and i love waffles but not together. bob puts peanut butter on his peach ice cream. he loves it and when i took a bite, i said all i taste is PB so why bother with the ice cream. i also can't eat whip cream and fruit on waffles in the IHOP, just syrup... TMI...

Hope and patience so important now. I am reading and studying 1 and 2 Thessalonians Paul was a great teacher.

Sunny is a very beautiful cat. Lovely series!

SquirrelQueen said...

Oh my goodness, Sunny is one very patient and well behaved kitty. But I think he was being good in hopes of a lick or two of the ice cream.

Bobbi and Gracie said...

Sunny is beautiful! What a nice kitty :-)

George said...

Not only is Sunny patient, he is also very handsome. I like his eyes.

Arti said...

Aww, how very sweet and adorable! Love the accompanying quote as well!

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

That sure is patience! How is Sunny doing? I hope he's feeling better.

Hi Ginny!
The tunnel is one I got at Walmart, it was really cheap. It isn't all that big but as you can see in the photo Adam has figured out how to make it fit.

Pretty eyes on that kitty. Enjoyed the quote and verse you shared, too.

Chris Scheuer said...

You have trained Sunny very well Ginny. We had a Siamese cat when I was growing up and he did not have good manners - at all! Your Sunny sounds like a gem!

Chatty Crone said...

Did you give your kitty some ice cream?

Lady Jane said...

I have never had ice cream on waffles. Yum... Does he put maple syrup on top. I am going to have to try this treat...

Melanie said...

Oh, that is so cute! You have a very pretty cat! Our dog, Lilly, LOVES ice cream, and will also wait patiently while my husband eats his ice cream because she knows he will always give her some. Pets are so funny. :-)
