Wonder Dog

Logan is an adventurer. She doesn’t look like one. She doesn’t act like one. But if she sees a rabbit she TRANSFORMS into Wonder Dog. We think she saw a rabbit Tuesday afternoon while she was enjoying the sunny afternoon. When Jon got home after work the gates looked closed but there was no Logan. It seems that she pushed open the temporary gate between the house and the garage and she was off and running. She’s never been gone for more than 8 hours before, and when she didn’t return overnight in spite of cold temperatures we thought she was a goner. We still left the back gate open, just in case. Then last evening between 5:30 and 6:00 Jon looked outside and there she was hanging out by the back gate. She was moving REALLY slowly and seemed to be hurting quite a bit, but was clean and dry and no blood. Today she has improved all day and is moving better. She still gets really stiff after lying still for a while. One thing for sure, she doesn’t want to talk about where she was or what she did! No matter what questions we ask, we get the same blank look and we know she’s not interested in sharing her experience. We’re glad she’s back. I guess we’ll have to let her keep her secrets.

Thought for the day

“Trust in the Lord and do good. Dwell in the land and cultivate faithfulness. Delight yourself in the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord, trust also in Him, and He will do it.” Psalm 37:3-5
I love these verses. Trust, dwell, cultivate, commit. All good words. All words that are anchors to the soul. They are words that help us lay aside the trivial and identify what is real and lasting in our lives. There are so many distractions and extras that are truly unnecessary even though we think we can’t function without them. It used to just be TV, but now we have technology that we take with us into every area of our lives, and we actually believe it’s all necessary. I have no ax to grind with the use of technology, but we must be careful to keep space in our lives for peace, for quiet, for reflection, for talking to God, for hearing from God. Constant noise, music, and visual input rob our inner peace, and while we think we are entertained we are, in fact, left in turmoil and unrest. Purposely make a choice to turn something off each day, even just for a while, and make a deliberate connection with God for even just a short time. In Him you will find peace and calm for your heart.
