Freckles’ Adopt a Pet – June 21, 2017

 
Freckles and The Progress Review encourage potential pet owners who are loving and responsible to consider adopting a pet from the Cedar Bend Humane Society.
Cassidy is a happy, energetic 3 year old who wants to snuggle. While he is fairly active, he does calm down and he enjoys laying next to you as you relax. He always wants to have a paw on you to make sure you are near, however! If you move, he will be right by your side and ready to go. Cassidy would make a great companion for any person who is willing to spend a little time with basic training. While he is great with dogs, he should not be in a home with cats. He would likely make a wonderful family dog, and would love to be home with you! His adoption fee is $190.

Meditations – June 21, 2017

By Christopher Simon
The Garments of Faith
“Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace.”   ~ Ephesians 6:14-15 NIV
We get dressed every morning to prepare for the work of the day, putting on our uniforms, as it were, and dressing appropriately for both the work ahead and the day’s weather. Why not clothe the soul with the protective garments of faith as well? In the grand scheme of things, our immortal soul is worth infinitely more than our corruptible bodies, and thus we should take greater pains to protect it. The faith and knowledge that God loves us and wants us to be well while we carry out His will is a protective garment greater than anything we have in our closets. A great addition to the morning routine is to “gird up your loins” with the garments of faith and thanksgiving, remembering that our primary mission and the very meaning of our life is to love God with all our hearts, and to love our fellow man as we love ourselves. How wonderful that we can put on the garments of faith each day and go out into the world prepared to do God’s work!

Freckles’ Adopt a Pet – June 14, 2017

Simon (about 5 years old) is a handsome chocolate point Siamese that loves to chase anything that rolls! He gets along well with older children, and would prefer to be the only pet in the home. He is not a huge fan of being held, but he loves to be petted and sitting by your side as your relax on the couch. He is fairly independent, and would love to find a home that respects his space when he requests it. Simon is declawed on his front paws; his adoption fee is $80.
