My Life Verse

God causes all things to work together for good, for those who love Him and are called according to His purpose...

Throughout my life, in all its ups and downs, this has been the one constant truth I can confess.

Thanks again Arch, today you took me back to my boyhood & my pal Rebel, who traveled w/me through so many adventures, but became my dad's dog when I left for military service. I have also learned to trust my Saviour to be faithful & true especially when He promised to never leave me or forsake me. For as a boy I knew the loneliness of being left in orphanages @ ages 5 & 6. So this new Friend was, to a wounded boy now in a mans' body, a real Balm of Giliad.

There has hardly ever been a time in my life when I didn't have the companionship of a dog to share the trials and joys of my life. I too have noted a very wonderful allegory between how my dog views our relationship, and how I need to view mine with our Lord. My dogs are always ebullient upon my return, and curious and listless at my departure-- no matter for how long or short the time in between may be. All too often I allow the challenges and trials of everyday life to pull me away from my Father, my Master, my Provider. Dogs all too often can teach us life lessons in both subtle and overt ways-- we just have to pay attention and let them show us ;-)
