This dog makes me happy.
He LOVES his new momma.
He needs affection.
He greets me at the the front door.
He eats my food (sometimes when he’s not supposed to…)
He has terrible gas.
But most of all? He is ALWAYS happy to see me. Every day over and over!
Read a chapter today that hit home:
So flee youthful passions and pursue righteousness, faith, love, and peace, along with those who call on the Lord from a pure heart. Have nothing to do with foolish, ignorant controversies; you know that they breed quarrels. And the Lord’s servant must not be quarrelsome but kind to everyone, able to teach, patiently enduring evil, correcting his opponents with gentleness. God may perhaps grant them repentance leading to a knowledge of the truth, and they may come to their senses and escape from the snare of the devil, after being captured by him to do his will.
Wow. Flee from youthful passions. That sentence sums up my life. And foolish controversies? Cannot even begin to talk to you, the internet, about how much I love to fight. Its a streak I’ve always had in me.
Baby steps, right? I don’t have to fix everything today…
So today, I didn’t fight with that beautiful beast I call Trouble. Good day.
