Honey and I are beginning to bond. Here is post #1 of others to come!
I know, I should learn how to insert pictures. I have not taken a picture of Honey yet because sometimes he is difficult to see. He is that little piece of fluffy fur curled up in his favorite sleeping corner. I named him “Honey” because he is honey colored, a solid coat with no spots. He and I are in a period of adjustment.
Uncle Bill’s Pet Center is very firm about not feeding hamsters anything other than the seed category. Walnuts are seeds. Since I tamed Hank by offering him walnut slices, I thought Honey might do the same. Ah, Honey can be bribed! After only two days of offering Honey a walnut sliver, he is already “asking” for a treat.
Jack, my grandson’s hamster, Hank, my former hamster, and Honey are just like people: they all have a different personality. Jack likes to escape. In fact, he escaped last week—again. This time he munched on Kevin’s music! Hank liked security. Honey builds a sleeping nest that is sky high! He keeps piling up the bedding into one corner; then he sleeps on top of it. Jack buries himself in his exterior wheel. Hank liked his hut.
I like them all: Jack, Hank, Honey. God made us all with our unique likes and dislikes. Even identical twins, I am told, have a unique and different finger print. What is absolutely astounding is that God knows all about us on an individual basis. God knows us better than we know ourselves. Psalm 139:2 tells me that “. . . Thou understandest my thoughts afar off.”
I look at my pet and wonder, “What is he thinking?” God looks at me and says, “I know what Karyl is thinking.” I uniquely belong to God; God belongs uniquely to me. I know Him as my Savior. Do you?
