4 One Thousand Gifts Week 5

 This is how my dad and Gus fish. . .
Gus loves my dad so much. . . he has absolute unwavering and unconditional loyalty . . . which while watching them 'fish' together, made me compare their relationship to our walk with Christ. . .
Sometimes when we ask God to move in a certain way, his answer is "wait." . . . this picture makes me think of that more than anything. . . Gus wanted to get in the water, but Dad told him to wait until he was done fishing. . .
I needed that this week. . . the answer "wait" is so hard sometimes. . . I have a friend going through an unimaginable valley right now. . . and this picture brings me such peace. . . "wait". . . and He will carry you through this dark time. .
“These things I have spoken to you, so that in Me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world." John 16:33
5. The way a sip of Earl Grey takes me back to memories of high tea in London.
Pin It!

  4. LOVE the picture! My Buster sits like that --- all ready to let loose at the very first word. The "stay" and "wait" thing are the hardest for him. But he has learned that there is usually a reward for waiting. Isn't that true with our Heavenly Father? We wait, we trust, and in the end, His way is best, better than we could have ever planned! Thank you for the lesson today. I'll always think of it when Buster is waiting to RUN!
