Sadie's Near Death Experience

At her advanced age, a serious illness could be fatal.  Somehow dogs do not realize this.  So when Sadie decided she really really wanted to indulge in the rancid grease drippings from the grill, she didn't understand how sick she'd become.
Timing is everything.  It happened shortly before the family was due to leave for vacation.  However, after almost losing her, careful vet care revived her and she's back in fine form.  She arrived at the kennel with a full regiment of medications.  Being the wonderful dog that she is, she was a good patient.  She received plenty of love to restore her health.

Isn't it hard to say no to the wonderful temptations that are all around us?  We want to indulge, not knowing how rancid and sickening a poor substitute for God really is. 

We strive, we fail, but we revive under God's incredible grace, forgiveness, and love.
