Other than that, he's doing well. He's still discovering his limitations but increasing in stamina. He does go on small walks with Sadie almost daily and even went with her and I on a 2 mile walk a little while back. He's very seriously considering a rescue dog. We brought one home this week for a trial. He's about a 1 1/2 year old beagle. Ty calls him Buddy. He was a stray and his tail has not stopped wagging since we brought him home. He has a lot of mannerisms to learn and in 48 hours has shown great improvement. Sadie has a love-hate relationship with him as he doesn't know when to leave her alone. She makes sure to tell him when enough is enough but he doesn't get the message. I am pleased with his progress but how he behaves with Sadie is the big test.
This guy is so, so happy to be a part of our home. Always smiling and always wagging that tail. It just goes to show that no one is a lost cause. You would be amazed at how love, attention and understanding can transform someone's life. Without love, there is no hope but with love comes hope and with hope, life. Because of Christ's love we have hope and because of hope, life. Just as Jesus said: "I have come that they may have life and that they may have it more abundantly." (John 10:10) Are you in need of love? Hope? Do you want life? The answer lays waiting for you to receive it. You must first let go of the things that restrain you from love, hope and life. The things that are life draining. If you turn from your sinful ways and surrender your life to him, just as He said, you will receive life. Do it today for today is the day of salvation.
If you already know Christ, you can make a difference in someone's life. Just as we have instilled hope, love and attention to this creature, we can do so much more with the people around us who have no hope. No life. No love. We all have pain in life and it's our responsibility to help each other through it. As Paul said in Gal 6:2: "Bear one another's burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ."
Keepin the faith,
