Ma and Pa and Someone Else's Pup

Christmas up at dear friends' home - one son had given his wife a puppy for Christmas and we got to play with little Kimber for a while which resulted in real puppylove! Didn't want anyone to think I'd disappeared from blogworld - so here is a quick update - alive, reasonably well, ready for winter to end and knowing it is Good on Buhlaland -






Don't know about others but I find it helpful to be reminded to pray about everything - in all things to seek His will - even in my insignificant personal junk can be part of an ongoing conversation with Abba


Your Problems Matter to God
By Max Lucado
Thank God! He deserves your thanks. His love never quits. Psalm 136:1 The Message

If I know that one of the privileges of fatherhood is to comfort, then why am I so reluctant to let my heavenly Father comfort me?
Why do I think he wouldn’t care about my problems? (“They are puny compared to starving people in India.”)
Why do I think he is too busy for me?

Is that a little Aussie pup? Cute!
Glad to hear good news for Buhl-a-land!

I should have said - Kimber is a shelter dog and is a blue heeler - already showing signs of her breed by "heeling" other dog and people in the house!

@commoncents - probably not link exchange - your political opinions are certanly your right to express but not necessarily what I'd endorse- bless y'all

There is just something heart-melting about a puppy. Did you resist the urge to get another of your own?

I love Max Lucado's writing , and even more the encouragement from God Himself as revealed in the Bible. Praise Him!

The wonderful thing about our God is that your insignificant junk is no less insignificant than that of the rich and powerful in this world, and I appreciate the reminder from you, very much.

This is a good picture of you and Skip. Skip looks so healthy, prayer works. ( a good doctor doesn't hurt either, especially since we know God provides them too)
