Help Us Name Our Kitten?

Now, a first for this blog, I’ve got a little survey for you.

On Friday we brought a new kitten into our home. He’s adorable, sweet, and oh so tiny. Our other cat (the world’s best cat, by the way, though I realize I haven’t really talked about him much) is kind of ticked about the whole thing, but I think (hope) he and the kitten with eventually be friends. And the kitten totally freaked when we introduced him to the dogs, though as of yesterday they are good buddies. (Please ignore DH–pretend he’s just the couch in this picture. Ha ha.)

New Kitten Needs a Name

But DH and I can’t decide on a name.

So I thought I’d put it out there for you guys. Our other cat is Vito–officially on his vet records Don Vito Corelone–after the Godfather. He is exactly what Marlon Brando would look like were he a cat (or, we think so anyway). So we decided to name the new kitten after a great author or another fabulous fiction character.

This is Vito, modelling his bow tie for Christmas last year.

Please pick a name you like from the poll–or leave a name in the comments. I’ll give it until Wednesday and then we’ll have to decide officially . . . cause the poor guy needs a name and I’ve been calling him by each option in turn (or, occasionally, several options strung together).

Happy Monday everyone!

Series on Pause

Guys–I’m taking a break from my “They Were Called” series. It’s not necessarily finished, but I know if I write a post on it today (and maybe even if I do it next week) it will be forced and not inspired and, well, that would be a waste. I’ve really enjoyed studying some of these men and women who were called to do great things. Some got to do what they wanted, some were called to better, some were called to different. But they were all called by God. And God equipped them to fulfill their callings, even if the equipping sometimes meant allowing trials and difficulties in their lives. Like Hannah, who wouldn’t have been motivated to give Samuel over to God if not for her infertility, I like to think that I am being used by God in some way while I wait. I have more people I want to write about–Abraham (and Sarah), Joseph, Elizabeth–but I can’t do it justice today. So please forgive this “pause” on my series. I have other things to write, other things I want to focus on right now. But I will come back to this, God willing.
