The Waving Cat

waving-catI am not sure the official name of this little thing, but it’s something I purchased while we were in Taiwan.  It’s a very common site to see a “waving cat” in businesses, entrances to stores, etc.  It was definately a conversation piece.  Some people say the cat is just welcoming people.  Others say, the cat is waving it’s arm saying, “give me your money”, as you enter the store.


Since bringing it home, the cat now sits on the shelf of a small table in our living room.  This little solar power souvenir starts waving it’s arm and shaking it’s head “yes” as soon as the sun comes up each morning.  This morning, as I was moving my suitcase which is still neatly situated in the living room after getting home Sunday night, I noticed again this little treasure.  The constant nodding “yes” caught me off guard for a moment.  And immediately, this verse came to mind and has been on my mind since: 


For no matter how many promises God has made, they are “Yes” in Christ. And so through him the “Amen” is spoken by us to the glory of God.             – 2 Cor. 1:20


So I took a picture and decided to share it.   There are so many things saying “no” to us.  But God’s promises are “yes” in Christ.
