Percy Leads All Creatures
Hey, Blogger, this is Percy. Are you there? I'd like to report an annoying glitch in your pic posting procedure. It doesn't work half the time! First, you wouldn't load me, then you installed ten copies. Yes, 10 oopies of this same photo! And when I deleted 9, you threw in #11. Now I have no problem having my mancatly handsomeness displayed ten - well, 11 times in a row, but our readers might not stick around to scroll down far enough to see what I'm posting..
And I have a furry appropriate - yes, furry appropriate video for our Sunday post.
Cotton suggests I begin with a favorite quote from St. Francis of Assisi: If you have men who will exclude any of God's creatures from the shelter of compassion and pity, you will have men who will deal likewise with their fellow men.
If there are no more interruptions or suggestions, let's get to the main feature. It's a beautiful slide show of animals and human scenes to compliment the song "All Creatures of Our God and King." The arrangement is by Fernando Ortega.
The song is based on Psalm 148:7-10: Praise the Lord from the earth, you great sea creatures and all ocean depths, lightning and hail, snow and clouds, stormy winds that do his bidding, you mountains and all hills, fruit trees and all cedars, wild animals and all cattle, small creatures and flying birds.
I'm sure you'll enjoy it. It's such a pretty tune, I haven't been able to resist standing and waving my paws to lead the orchestra. And now that I've got the hang of it, I'm thinking of applying for a job as a conductor. Would any of you volunteer to give a reference for me?
