It's Her Birthday!

That's Cooper. Isn't she cute! She just turned two this week and belongs to a friend of mine. Rumor has it that she is definitely in the "terrible twos" stage. Cooper is a cute Beagle. Beagles are notorious for "following their noses" and forgetting all about the people around them, the dogs they may have been playing with a second before, or food on the table. Scent rules and kicks in their instinct to follow, no matter if it leads them far from home or into dangerous traffic. Can you relate to that? I know I can, only too well. We are also "prone to wander." When our focus is not on God, remembering what and who He is to us, we look at what's right in front of us. Suddenly our senses tempt us away, following what is immediately appealing, even if it takes us into the path of danger. The next thing we know, we may be far from home. The good news is that God welcomes us back with open arms when we realize we were fools, broken and dirty from our "adventure." Rejoice!


  1. I know that dog! And what a treat she is to know!

    1. I've heard rumors she's not much of a hugger.

  2. Cooper's bday is coming up again in 2 1/2 months!
    Shouldn't we start to celebrate now????
