Today I am thankful for the sweetest addition to our family.
I've loved rabbits since I was a little girl. My bedroom used to be rabbit-themed and I would hop around the house pretending like I was the furry-little creature. I was photographing a wedding on Saturday and my family called multiple times along with sending texts and photos of this adorable little boy who was for sale. Nathan and I talked about getting a rabbit eventually but we're out of town or at school so often that the idea just didn't make sense yet. Since school just ended and we're entering a new life chapter, we thought he would be a great addition.
Before bringing Thimble home, Nathan and I researched bunny health for hours. We were so paranoid about giving him the right food, the right cage, how much exercise he needs, etc. If an expert gave advice on proper care, we memorized their words by heart, wanting the best for our little man. God started teaching me something in these moments of preparing for Thimble. I was so quick to obey the advice these people gave on rabbit health and I didn't question their opinions one bit. I would never dare oppose what the experts said because it might mean the sickness or death of our bunny. In these moments, he was showing me how so often I hear what scripture says and I deliberately disobey. I know what the expert says and I do the opposite. I was embarrassed yet humbled as he showed me these things. When I disobey God, I am hurting myself. I could be healthy and thriving if I treated God the way I treated the bunny-experts. During this simple lesson, my outlook is completely changing. Father forgive me for my pride.
