Whisked away for surgery

Posted by on July 26, 2013 at 12:09 pm.

Early this morning, I dropped Oreo the bunny rabbit, off for surgery appointment (spaying) at our local animal hospital.

The poor girl knew something was up and shivered the entire time we were in the SUV. Once we arrived at the facility, we waited for a few moments while they got her paperwork ready. Because of the slight delay, I opened up her kennel and started petting her to calm her down. It worked, and she flopped down in her endearing, “I really like this, please don’t stop position.” She became so relaxed, that by the time the technician came to get her, she was fine and let the vet tech pick her up without struggling.

I Peter 5:7

Casting all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you.

New American Standard Bible

My daughter is worried about her little playmate, hoping that she’ll be fine. I told her that spaying is a standard procedure, barring unforeseen complications, she’d have her fur bunny back in no time.

Luke 12:6
Are not five sparrows sold for two [a]cents? Yet not one of them is forgotten before God.
New American Standard Bible

I also told her we could pray that the surgery would go smoothly. If God doesn’t forget sparrows, he’s surely watching over bunnies too.

Mahalia Jackson: His Eye Is On The Sparrow

His Eye Is On The Sparrow

Why should I feel discouraged, why should the shadows come,
Why should my heart be lonely, and long for heaven and home,
When Jesus is my portion? My constant friend is He:
His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me;
His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me.

(alternative first verse) Why should I feel discouraged, why should the shadows fall
Why should my heart be troubled, When all but hope is gone?
when Jesus is my fortress. My constant friend is He.
His eye is on the Sparrow, and I know He watches me.
His eye is on the Sparrow, and I know He watches me!

Refrain

I sing because I’m happy,
I sing because I’m free,
For His eye is on the sparrow,
And I know He watches me.

“Let not your heart be troubled,” His tender word I hear,
And resting on His goodness, I lose my doubts and fears;
Though by the path He leadeth, but one step I may see;
His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me;
His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me.

Refrain

Whenever I am tempted, whenever clouds arise,
When songs give place to sighing, when hope within me dies,
I draw the closer to Him, from care He sets me free;
His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me;
His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me.

Refrain
