"Nonverbal Books"

Foster makes a lot out of "nonverbal books."  By that, he means almost anything else that can be studied that is not in written form.  These are the events of life, history, art, nature, relationships, etc. 

I was thinking about my wife's 5 cats.  They love my wife.  They love being with my wife.  They wait for her, look for her, and . . . (fill in with any needy kind of thing).  That kind of love or dependence is what I imagine God looks for from us.  Longing, affection, desire, need, exhiliration, joy, contentment, etc.

There might actually be something I could learn from my wife's cats.  Well, I guess they are good for something.
