Supercat in the bath

“Don’t do that again, Kara, you scared me senseless,” Cat admonishes, wiping an excess of bubbles from Kara’s shoulders as she relaxes between Cat’s legs.

“It’s hard to be deterred when you’re rewarding me with a bath and a massage,” Kara points out.

“It’s the only way to check you’re healing as quickly as you claim,” Cat insists, relieved to see that yet another bruise over Kara’s ribs has faded.

Golden advice

Abu’d Dardā’ said: The Messenger of Allāh ﷺ admonished [advised] me with regard to nine things:        

١. Do not associate anything with Allāh, even if you are cut to pieces or burnt.
٢. Do not abandon an obligatory prayer deliberately. Anyone who deliberately abandons it will lose Allāh’s protection.
٣. Do not drink wine for it is the key to every evil.
٤. Obey your parents, even if they command you to abandon your worldy possessions, then leave it for their sake.
٥. Do not content with those in power, even if you think you are more capable.
٦. Do not run away from the army when it advanced, even if you are killed and your companions run away.
٧. Spend on your wife out of your means.
٨. Do not raise a stick against your wife.
٩. Command your family to fear Allāh, the Mighty and Exalted.

Al-Adab al-mufrad #18

Fudayl ibn Iyad (رحمة الله عليه) said:

“Admiration is part of faith and envy is part of hypocrisy. The believer admires others and does not envy others, and the hypocrite envies others and does not admire others. The believer overlooks the faults of others, admonishes others, and gives good advice. The hypocrite disgraces others, insults others, and betrays others.” 

[(Hilyat Al-Awliya 11716) (Narrater: Abu Nu’aim)]

Something Stirs (a story with Red Kelp and Strawberry)

Cold, unyielding panic woke the dryad and she stared into the open night sky. Something was coming, something was changing.

“Not yet, and not soon,” she sighed in relief. Her preternatural senses were intricately tuned to her forest, and being winter, the trees and spirits felt especially vulnerable. The threat was coming, but not tonight.

The mermaid stirred in the icy bath-shaped depression dug into the forest’s floor. The dryad reached over and stroked her aquatic lover’s hair, soothing the sleeping creature. Let her sleep. The dryad checked the warming stones that magically kept the bath safe and comfortable, no matter the season’s chill.

The next morning, the mermaid used their language of signing and facial expressions to admonish her lover. “When you are scared, I am scared. We have to be a team. Don’t keep danger from me.”

“I don’t want to bring this to you. I don’t know what is out there!”

The mermaid stared up into bright hazel eyes with a hard, exaggerated expression of exasperation. “And neither do I! But this,” she gestured to the forest from her tiny pool, “is All. Unknown. To me. Everything here is out of my world” – the mermaid used the sign for ‘wool,’ not 'world,’ and the dryad made a mental note to tease her later when they weren’t fighting – “so you have to be open with me.” Then emphatically, “Always.” Then, taking the dryad’s hands and pulling them into the water, drawing them to her lips, the mermaid slowly signed, “please.” She kissed the tips of her lover’s fingers.

The dryad agreed glumly and apologized. The mood was only sour until breakfast was decided upon.

Kenney's 'Racial Slur' Against Sajjan Causes Stir In India
One prominent Indian politician wants to see the Conservative MP "be admonished and reprimanded."

A Conservative MP’s outburst toward Defence Minister Harjit Sajjan earlier this week has riled parliamentarians and spurred calls for an apology — in India.

Amarinder Singh, a popular Punjab politician, criticized Jason Kenney’s alleged request for an “English-to-English” translation of Sajjan’s remarks earlier this week about the government’s plan to combat the so-called Islamic State.

Singh, who is a current member of Parliament in the Indian National Congress, tweeted on Friday that the remark was an example of “racial humiliation.”’

He expanded on his sentiment in a statement obtained by India Today, describing Kenney’s remarks as “outrageous” and “clearly and undoubtedly racial.”

He urged the Opposition MP to apologize to Sajjan or “be admonished and reprimanded in accordance” with Canadian parliamentary law.

Dry your eyes little one, for I am not angry with you.
I am angry with myself for failing you.
I let you believe that in my love for you I would forgive any failures on your part to follow my wishes.
I let you think that my gentleness and sensuality meant I would not punish any transgressions.
I kept my voice neutral when admonishing you for a misdemeanor instead of letting it show how disappointed I was.
Now I have had to punish you.
The marks of my hand on your pale skin rising red as your tears fall.
Your perfect derriere marked for My failings.
Your please for forgiveness full of confusion due to my failure to let you know what consequences follow failure.

I will always love you.
I will always be gentle and sensual.
I will always be calm.
But never again will I fail you by not letting you know when you have done something wrong.

June 11--Heart for the Lord--Day 11

“Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.”
Colossians 3:16 (NKJV)

Today’s Thought:
A Graceful Heart would be full of God’s word. It would be actively sharing the gospel with others. It would be eager to share with other believers the scripture and truth it has learned. It would be so full of gratitude for the favor God has shown it would be singing to the Lord daily. A Graceful Heart is certainly something to be desired.

Prayer of the Heart to the Lord:
Dear Lord, today I ask that You create in me a Graceful Heart so the word of Christ can dwell in me richly in all wisdom, then I will be able to share the gospel with those I meet daily.
I want to share Your word with other believers as we meet together and praise You with psalms, hymns and spiritual songs. I want others to see that Your grace dwells in my heart and then I want to extend that grace that You have given so freely to me to others that I meet and know.
Thank You, God, for giving me a Graceful heart. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

If the Stars should appear one night in a thousand years, how would men believe and adore; and preserve for many generations the remembrance of the city of God which had been shown! But every night come out these envoys of beauty, and light the universe with their admonishing smile. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson
Encourage fatness

There is a line that I see people saying over and over- “You shouldn’t encourage people to be fat”.

Sometimes the people who say this, go on to say mostly positive things about fatness or to defend fat people.

But.  What is contained in the phrase- Do not encourage people to be fat?

It is an explicit agreement with the idea that fatness is bad, wrong, sick, evil.

We don’t go around admonishing people to not encourage people to do things we think are neutral or good.

It perpetrates the stigma against fat people. It continues the lie that fat people have to be encouraged to lose weight- a lie that has harmed so many of us.

The Least-Sung Song

Christians sing. As far as I know, there are not too many faiths whose adherents make congregational singing an integral part of their worship. But when Christians gather to worship, they inevitably sing. Colossians 3:16 gives Christians their orders: “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs,…

Whose Uniform?

This goes with these. Not sure where the idea came from, just needed to add it to the mix.

Miyuki trudged into his room after going over the coming games information. It had been a long day starting at 5 am and just coming to a close at almost midnight. He just wanted to fall into bed and sleep, there was no morning practice the next day. That didn’t appear like it was going to happen though because Sawamura was asleep on the very bed that Miyuki had planned on occupying in the next five minutes. “Oy Sawamura” Miyuki said loudly roughly shaking him awake. “Go back to your own room to sleep”

It was then that Miyuki noticed that Sawamura was still in his uniform. “Hey, don’t sleep in your uniform, it’ll get wrinkled.” He admonished the younger man.

Sawamura sat up and the covers fell to his lap. He rubbed his eyes and said “Stupid Miyuki, I was waiting for you. Why are you being so mean?”

Miyuki’s eyes widened when he noticed that Sawamura was wearing HIS baseball uniform. He could see the size difference easily now. One of Sawamura’s shoulders was uncovered and the top was pooling around his waist. He looked adorable.  Miyuki grinned evilly and put a hand on his hip. “Why are you wearing my uniform?” Miyuki asked?

“Huh” Sawamura answered.

“Idiot Sawamura. Why are you wearing my uniform? Miyuki repeated.

A slow blush traveled up Sawamura’s face until even his ears were red. “Umm, because.”

Miyuki reached out and whacked him on the head. “That’s not an answer stupid.”

Miyuki watched as Sawamura pouted and rubbed his head. He didn’t think he could hold out much longer before giving into the need to hold him. “Fine.” Sawamura ground out. “I wanted to see how it fit……and…….then I noticed it smelled like you.”

“Whatever, scoot over. I’m tired and I want to go to sleep.” Miyuki said.

“You’re not mad? Is something wrong? Usually you tease me more.” Sawamura said dumbfounded.

“It’s been a long day and I’m tired, I’ll tease you plenty tomorrow….sound good?” Miyuki said as he stripped to his boxers and climbed in next to Sawamura drawing him into his arms. “Go to sleep”

Sawamura grinned and cuddled up against Miyuki laying his head against Miyuki’s heartbeat. Miyuki started rubbing Sawamura’s back and as his hands slipped down past his waist he came into contact with warm skin. “Sawamura!” Miyuki said in a startled voice. “Are you only wearing my top?”

Miyuki felt Sawamura nod against his chest. “Why?” Miyuki asked.

“You were having a long day, I thought you might want cheering up.” Sawamura said still laying on Miyuki’s chest.

Sawamura found himself quickly pinned under Miyuki and the jersey top pushed up to his chest. “Well” Miyuki said feeling all that warm skin under his hands. “What do you have planned?”

Sawamura reached up and pulled Miyuki down for a kiss saying just before their lips touched. “Whatever you want.”

“He was never going to win against Sawamura” Miyuki thought kissing him soundly. Not that he wanted to anyway if things turned out like this.
