There’s no greater instrument for good than a caring heart — in fact, that’s what sets the stage for miracles. Just ask the Bingham family, and the little creature who’s alive today because of them.
The Binghams were gathered outside the family’s cabin in Utah on a white Thanksgiving morning, when they discovered a lifeless stray kitten who had gotten buried beneath the freshly fallen snow. Despite the fact that he appeared to be frozen, with no detectable heartbeat, the family rushed him inside to try to coax the kitty back to life.
What happened next is nothing short of amazing.
Incredibly, after being warmed by the fireplace and resuscitated with some gentle CPR, the kitten slowly but surely began to recover — an outcome the Binghams are calling a miracle.
They named the cat Lazarus.
We may never know what led little Lazarus to become abandoned and left exposed to the freezing elements, but the kindness that saved him that morning couldn’t be clearer — or more enduring.
Lazarus was adopted by one of the family members, and has since been given a clean bill of health, ready to start out life fresh, happy and warm in his loving new home.
