"My Bowl Runneth Over"

Every year, I forget how busy July is at the kennel.  The phone rings at all hours of the day and night.  People are bringing their dog(s) and picking them back up every day - at all hours of the day and night.  LOTS of cleaning.  I'm pretty much run ragged.
Yet, it's great to see people who I haven't seen for a year and hear about their vacations.  Meeting new people and their dogs is also a wonderful time.  Then there is the matter of finances - if the money doesn't come in in the summer, it doesn't come in.  July is important for business!

It's work, but it's necessary.  If looked at from the right point of view, it's also a tremendous blessing to enjoy my work about 80-90% of the time.

If you are feeling the burden in your life today, look for what good it may be doing you, if you can.  We can't always see the reason for pressure, discomfort and deep sadness.  Sometimes we need to look beyond our current crisis.  Always we need to seek God's comfort and steadying hand in the storm.

Run to the Lord today, whether blessing or burden sends you there.
