Delinquent Dog and This Season

I took Niva to a new dog daycare today because it was closer to our house. I dropped her off and got a call about an hour later that she was basically kicked out.

Our little Houdini isn’t allowed there anymore because she was doing some hardcore fence jumping and climbing. I have no idea how she was getting over those fences, but I’m not surprised 🤷‍♀️ 

I feel like I’m in a crazy season right now, and I don’t just mean weather-wise, lol. It’s a season of busyness, going to and from Children’s Hospital for testing, scheduling procedures, phone calls from doctors, appointments, and bloodwork. A season of late night prayers while tears run down my face. A season of unknowns. 

At the very same time, I’m in a season of joy. A season of playing with play-doh, bedtime stories, snuggling, giving bubble baths, and making forts.

A season of thankfulness for family and friends who love us, pray, and care. A season of leaning on others for support, and leaning on God for everything.

When I think about seasons in life, I’m always reminded of Ecclesiastes 3:1: There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens.

The thing about seasons is that they change and shift. I won’t always be in a crazy season of life. I won’t always have these worries. I always have to remember to take the tough stuff with the good stuff (like Job did so well) and remember that God made it all and is in control. 

I want to savor the sweet moments and pray through the hard ones. I want to find joy in the difficulties and give thanks to God for everything! 

What type of season are you in right now?
