Loyal Friends

Yesterday's post was an everlasting EPISTLE!! Sorry about that, I'm still trying to get the hang of this. Special blessings on you if you dared to wade through the entire thing.

So this morning, I offer you one short blip that will hopefully make you smile.

I have two loyal friends who join me every morning no matter what time I do my devotions. Today, we saw the sun rise together then sat reading and making journal entries. Who are these loyal companions?

Bella and Gracie!

Bella is the "horse/dog" (yellow lab) that my husband has always dreamed of owning. A gift to him from another dog lover in our church. She brings her ball for me to toss (just how far can a lab run indoors, I ask you?!) Then after two or three runs, she curls contentedly at my feet with some part of her back or head touching my leg.

Gracie is the spoiled princess (or so the girls say). Our little black and white shih tzu who is afflicted with a terrible underbite. When she looks up at us, it looks for all the world as though she is channeling Elvis Presley. Hmmmm! She does not chase anything! And prefers that I get settled on the love seat quickly so she can finally curl up next to me.

Isn't it interesting how important touch is to all mammals.

So anyway, here we sit. The three of us; nearly every morning.

They remind me of the cute "prayer" I've read from time to time. Lord, may I be as good as my dog thinks I am. Amen. Amen to that!
