Cat.
You make palaces out of paper bags.

Teach me how to do the same.

To graciously accept what has been given
And gratefully turn it into something telling of His glory.

Because there is no use dreaming of things that I do not have.
And no point pining for places that I have not been sent.

Cat.
You are just a cat.

So if you can work this kind of magic,
Then so should I.
So very well should I.

that only seek what they need.
