Jesse loves to run ahead, but never lets me out of his sight !

He comes running at the mention of his name.

He is one happy boy, this day as he gets to run and play

He stopped long enough to pose as he looks towards the Bay.


He is our boy and we wouldn’t trade him for a Million Dollars. He brings us so much joy. There isn’t a day goes by that he doesn’t make me laugh out loud. He is my little white shadow. I thank God for pets! What would we do without them? I know many of you can relate because you have pets of your own. I can’t imagine a world without them.

This reminds me of a cute little story about a girl and a dog. I hope it will bring a smile to your face, and a chuckle to brighten your day.


A saleswoman  passed a particular corner each day on her way to work. One day she observed a young girl trying to sell a floppy – eared puppy. After a week , the saleswoman finally said to the girl. “Honey if you really want to sell this dog, then I suggest you clean him up and make people think they are getting something big.” At noon the saleswoman had noticed that the girl had taken her advice. The puppy was groomed and sitting under a big sign. “TREEMEMMDOUS Puppy for sale $5,000.”

To her surprise, on the way home she noticed the puppy was gone. Flabbergasted, the woman sought out the girl to ask her if she really sold the puppy for 5,000.

The girl replied, “ I sure did, and I want to thank you for all your help..” The saleswoman stuttered, “How in the world did you do it?” The girl said, “It was easy. I just took two $2,500. cats in exchange!”


Two thousand years ago there was another great exchange. Jesus Christ gave His life in exchange for ours. What value did He see in us? We were His prized creation, stolen for a season by our own will , but now repurchased as His beloved possession.


For you are bought with a price therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.  1 Corinthians 6:20.


I hope to find you all well. Have a Blessed week.

Peace and Grace be with you.
