Misty

 

Allow me to tell you all about my new friend…

A couple months back we lost our other dog , Amelia, to heart disease and it devastated the whole family as that made it we had lost both the dogs in a fairly short time really.

Anyhow, my older daughter heard of a greyhound supporter who rescued them from all kinds of peril and looked to re home them.

We made contact with Julie and almost immediately went along to see her dogs.

We fell for Misty…

We brought her home and after a while she settled in well. She has her *own* routine lol…

You have no idea how much fun this big dog is!!

She has a character of all her own.

The best part is , we go for walks 2 – 3 times a day and every time we get to talk to someone who I may never have spoken to before…neighbours along our road, new people in the area, foreigners who are working here, temporarily, and am tripping out over how God is not only presenting me with a community to reach out with His love to, but am building up a rapore with them so that I get to mention, or talk about Jesus and it may be their very first time ever to have heard of the love of God.

Not only that, God has a true sense of humor . Generally, I hate walking as a rule, but since Misty arrived I have no choice in the matter!! She needs a walk, I need the exercise and all in all its happening without my thinking too much on it!

Here Misty enjoys her bed…a huge duvet with cover, just so soft and homely!!

For all [these] things are [taking place] for your sake, so that the more grace (divine favor and spiritual blessing) extends to more and more people and multiplies through the many, the more thanksgiving may increase [and redound] to the glory of God.

O I don’t quite know why? Perhaps I have been too busy in everything, recently, to think about writing my thoughts and stuff on line!!

Anyhow, today I thought I would update it and bring any readers who visit me my latest pondering s.

Somehow, God is holding me through what has actually been a difficult time for me. I have struggled with some issues that held me back from running the race in full view of everyone.

I became discouraged and despondent with some areas in my life that I knew needed altering and changing but just could not do it.

Then God challenged me.

He confirmed plans He has for me up ahead and I KNEW that today I need to apply the principles of God’s Word to my life and see to it that no longer do I live to please me or men but for Him who has done so much in my life already.

I have found I have gifts and abilities from God, and He is using me in the capacity of administration.

I LOVE what I do for Him and I cannot boast in anything except Christ Jesus.

It is HIS Grace which has kept me from stepping back and being in a place I never want to be found in again.
