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.

Caught and Cake Pops

I caught Jimmy and Niva snuggling in Sadie’s rocking chair. They look adorably guilty, don’t they?

I’m happy to report that Sadie’s fever went down! 

You know what I think helped? Cake pops. It’s good medicine to go on a car + coffee and cake pop date 😉 Oh, and we can’t forget milk. That helps too, right?

We went on a family walk the other night and the fresh air felt fantastic. We kept it short because it was pretty cold, but Sadie thought it was neat to be in her stroller in her footie pajamas.

I think I’m battling a sinus infection, but I’ll survive. I always seem to get them when I get sick so I know the drill and what to expect 🤷🏼‍♀️

I was so out of it the other morning that I just sipped coffee and stared off into space instead of reading my Bible like I usually do. So, my daily Bible study time happened on the couch during Sadie’s nap.

Here’s what I’m learning from Hebrews 4:12:

  • The Word of God is living. The enduring nature of it is great proof of its reliability.
  • Only 0.5% of books are in demand seven years after their publication and books are rarely reprinted after 25 years. The Bible? It’s the best selling book of all time!
  • The Word of God is living because it’s timeless, tested, and true. It’s relevant, applicable to people in the past, and those in the present. It transcends culture, race, gender, occupation, and social and economic status. 
  • We can always learn something new from The Word, no matter how many times we read it. 
  • The Word is powerful and sharper than a double-edged sword; it can cut in both ways by encouraging or condemning. It’s also a weapon against the devil. 
  • God’s Word is unchanging. We may try to dance around difficult scriptures, but the Lord stands firm on what He has proclaimed. It is up to us to accept the Bible, not change it. 

Okay, I better get going. Sadie is waking up and it’s time to start our day! 

Have you ever had a cake pop?
