Rescue Rabbit

Nadine and I were in our basement watching a very important game.  Patriots vs. Chargers.  Living in New England for seven years causes one to begin to adopt the professional teams in the area (that is if you are a sports fan.  If you aren’t don’t stop listening to this jlog because the story has nothing to do with this introduction).  The basement has a few windows with window wells about 6 feet from the surface of the outside.  She heard a thump and went over to the window well to see what happened.  We had a cover on this window well, but it had been moved slightly and this rabbit fell into the well.


Had we not been in the basement when we were, we would have never heard the thump and the rabbit would have probably passed from this earth.  We had to do something so I rigged up a long pole with a fly fishing net on the end of the pole.  The bottom of the well is 6+feet deep so there is no way the rabbit could escape.  I taped the net on the end of the pole and proceeded to begin the rescue.


After a couple of tries, I got the rabbit into the net and hauled it to the surface where it immediately jumped out of the net and scurried away.  Successful rescue.

I am reminded of the passage in the bible where it says that not one sparrow falls to the ground without the Lord’s knowledge.  I guess that goes for rabbits and all of His creation.  On our journey we will be called upon to care for God’s creatures and today was the day for me.  He will orchestrate your steps in such a way as to place you in the right place at the right time.  If He cares for the animals and birds, won’t He much more care for you?  Luke 12:6+

About James Gorton

I am happily married to Nadine, a person I've known for 20+ years. She and her late husband owned Airpark Auto Service where I took my car for years. Four years after my wife died we began dating and the rest is history. We have a blended family of 6 children between us and love visiting them across this country. We recently had our third grandchild between us. We love to hike, bike and ski. I am a psychologist and do relational life coaching for marriages and families primarily. I love what I do and never get tired of seeing marriages and families move to more healthy places in their lives. Five years ago my oldest daughter Deborah encouraged me to begin writing my thought into a blog I call my Jlog (Jim's log). I have become more and more passionate in connecting everyday experiences to spiritual truths. I hope that as you read my Jlog, you will gain insight into your personal life and experience true growth in your personal and relational life.
