From a Brutal Life to a Beautiful Life

Here's Brute.  He's back for his second visit here.
The first time Brute was here, he'd only been with his new owner a couple of months.  Having been rescued from a situation of neglect, Brute had a few things to learn about proper doggie etiquette.  Happily, he's come a long way in a short amount of time.  It is clear that he has thrived in his new home and is loyal to his new owner.

Some of us get a tough start in life.  It is very hard to undo the harshness we may have experienced.  Yet doing the hard work and relearning our behavior results in a better life.

Changes are hard and we don't like to do that work.  Sometimes we don't even know what that work even is!  I once heard an old Bible teacher say that even if you didn't believe in God, living God's laws are the best way to a peaceful life.  That's true, since those guidelines are for OUR benefit, and not because God needs us to behave ourselves. 

Yet doing life with God, with faith, is even a better life.  It is a little taste of Heaven - a beautiful thing!
