Rumor must have it that we have a soft heart for animals. I don't know how that got started.
Anyway, three skinny little orphan raccoons must have heard said rumor, because they've recently moved into a shed-turned-orphanage. Their new home is conveniently close to the pond, canal, and livestock feed.
"Pure and genuine religion in the sight of God the Father means caring for orphans and widows in their distress...." ~James 1:27 (NLT)
