Join Me at the Cafe’
I would like to introduce you to Daisy, the sweetest beagle this side of the Mason-Dixon.
Daisy was a Christmas gift from Luke and me to our kids two years ago. She began her darlin’ life sleeping in the laundry room at night and gradually found a permanent home in our fenced-in backyard. Her body may be penned, but her hound dog heart roams somewhere outside the confines of the chainlink fence alongside the strays who like to taunt her with their freedom. Her breed is prone to follow their noses, run with a pack, and get lost easily so we have to keep a careful eye on the gates so she doesn’t take off on a wild adventure.
The careful eye wasn’t so diligent on New Years’ Eve……. (read more..)
Visit me at the CWO Internet Cafe’ today to read,
Our dog Scooby has gotten loose more than a few times, but has come back on his own after only a few minutes. He is an inside dog and doesn’t like to be outside for more than a few minutes doing his job, or he thinks it is great punishment to be ostracized from his pack.
That is a great story about being sought out and welcomed back.
Loved it! And I’m always careful to wait and read the devotional in the morning, but I couldn’t wait on this one! I’ll just have to read it again tomorrow! :-)
Love the devotional. That was a great picture and I think I will read it in the morning to my kids at breakfast! We too have a wayward dog so it will definitely hit home!!
Thanks again!! You should think about creating a connecting resource for families – I have connections!! hee hee!
What a Word!!! I have been there and done that and praise God that he lovingly accepts us back!! I agree with the prayer you prayed at the end!!
Miss Daisy is a doll. I can’t believe we both have a Daisy. Mine is a beast. She loves to walk me, I mean go for walks. In fact, she will be crying at the door soon for her daily walk. I must say she is an indoor pet but if I opened the door she would run the neighborhood as your Daisy does and hopefully she would find her way back home!!
Have a great week!
I don’t know what is wrong with my stinkin’ internet….I can never get to the cafe! I try and try everytime you invite us there, but all it does is load up the banner at the top and that is it!!! **pouty lips**
Anyway, I am sure the devotional was great!
Lisa, I would like your opinion on something, could you come over and read my post “Appearances and Worship” Anyone could come for that matter….everyone’s opinions are welcome!
Wow, you reached out and told the truth right there. Instead of skimming the surface, you went in deep and I pray that you have touched, nay grabbed, someone right where they are and that the Word will soften their hearts to come home.
Keep up the good work!
Oh my, what an adorable pup! Those eyes are just the kind to melt you. Now, off I go to read your devo :) I may change my mind about adorable, but oh my, what a cutie!
I am going to the cafe now to finish this sweet story!!!
Lisa, you are a blessing and Daisy is really cute and I am not an animal lover, but cute dogs get to me every time and she is cute….glad you found her…may she learn to stay home and how good she has it within her boundaries….we all need boundaries and how good they are for us…
I can’t wait to go read about the prodigal beagle!!! That dog is/was just precious!
Off to get a Word. Thanks Lisa!
She is pretty precious! Heading over to the Cafe . . .
This dog is too cute! I look forward to reading the devotional :)
Lisa, you are always welcomed to “chime in” and I really don’t care if it turns into a book or not! :)
This is definitely a lesson learned by my dear hubby and I. He knew that there were many that didn’t care what he wore on Sun. evenings, but knew that he better be in a suit and tie for Sun. mornings. He now knows that his nicely pressed shorts and shirt are NOT acceptable in the eyes of a few even on a Sun. evening and although he can be a teeny bit rebellious at times, I know that he would not purposefully set out to upset this generation (or any other for that matter) of people again.
I have always loved that scripture in 1 Cor. although I have seen many people use it so far out of context which breaks my heart.
And as far as the nitpicky stuff….the Lord has shown me so much in the past couple of years about this. Our last church was full of nitpicky things. Although this conversation in SS started to stirr my feathers a little bit, I realized how much I have matured through God’s guidance with the way I responded and handled myself afterwords. In years past I would have cried and gotten upset at these women for “attacking” my dear husband (although I know he is not perfect either. BUT instead I was able to continue with the lesson and go to the service without letting it hinder my worship. And I have no one to thank for that other than God.
Thanks again for your words of widsom (which comes from Him!)
(I left this same comment on my site, but thought you might not just “pop” on over, so after I thought about it I decided just to copy it here!)
Daisy is absolutely adorable!!
I want one!! (uh oh, did I just type that?) ;o)
So cute! My husband is a Vet and is starting his own business. I’ve been collecting pictures of our favorite pets and yours looks like she would really take the cake! I’m off to read about the Prodigal Beagle!
Thanks for sharing, sweet siesta!
I have shared this awesome beauty with the dog lovers of this office…who could not love that!
A word to the wise…
…. dogs are pack animals. They desire more than anything to be with their pack (aka: family). By confining your dog to the backyard, alone for most of the time, he’s going to continue to look for ways to get out… and find another pack that he can be with all the time.
Most humane societies today will not adopt out a dog to a family that intends on keeping the dog outside for more than 3 hrs. per day… because it actually constitutes cruelty (isolation and loneliness) to have a dog outside alone any longer than that.
I wish you would think about having your dog inside the house. He could be loose while you’re at home and in the laundry room when you’re not, if he can’t be trusted the run of the house.
I often wonder why people get dogs if they’re only going to confine them to the backyard?! It just doesn’t make sense to me. I myself would hate to live in such isolation and dogs in fact do too.
Just thought I would mention this… and I’m kind of surprised the vet’s wife who already left a comment, didn’t mention this.
