Believe it or Not, this picture was another sample of my imagination during my dull time. That day I received some forwarded email from my colleague about the story of “The Cat Painter” by Becky Bravo and Mark Salvatus, I don’t know if you’re familiar with the story but if not, allow me to share some of the highlights of it.
One day in heaven, all the angels of God was busy painting His creation from the flowers, plants, ocean, insects and including the rainbow. Each angels were assigned to paint His creation according to their height and their age.
All the big and old angels should paint the biggest animals while small angels which we called in Filipino as “querubin” are assigned to paint all the small animals like cats. So, all the little angels are having fun painting their cat, their leader always reminding them to please follow the rule, to use one color per cat. But there’s one “querubin” who wanted to be different from the other angel or he wanted to be unique, in short. He uses his imagination, he started painting the cat using black and white color, that’s one, and then again he painted another cat using orange and white color.
He’s having so much fun doing his things, suddenly, their leader noticed his creation, the leader got mad at him and they went to God to report the subordination of one of his angel and presented the cat which he colored.
Guess what happened next?
Well, here’s what God said ” You have always been free to color my creatures in ways other than how were taught by those who came before you. Many ages have I waited for change such as this young Angel has made”
I’m sorry I’m not a good storyteller but I believe that’s how the story goes.
Good Day to all, BTW if you want to read the whole story for your kids, just browse it in the internet I’m sure you’re a better storyteller than me 🙂
To cut my story short, I just want to share what I understand in this story, each one of us was created with talents and uniqueness, we must use it and don’t waste it. We must also see the real meaning of all His creations.
How about you? How did you understand the story?
