It was an unusually nasty night. The wind was howling the rain was pounding on the roof; the weather had turned to freezing. It was 3:30 a.m. and “Lady” had to “go” outside. With great hesitation I opened the door and discovered a small Shih Tzu gazing upward into my eyes.
Her markings were stunning: grey, tan, white – even brown stripes on her ears. She “bumped” my ankle with her nose, began to wag her tail, looked steadfastly into my eyes and then bowed – as if pleading for her life.
After carefully examining her we realized that she had been abused and abandoned. Covered with dirt, fleas and ticks, she needed a home.
However, Mary and I had agreed that as long as Lady lived there would not be another dog allowed. Without saying a word, she used her pleading eyes and wagging tail to “force” her way into our lives. Bella overturned our rule,
After a few weeks she became “overly” attached to me. Constantly resting at my feet, standing patiently at the door when I leave, quietly waiting for me to make a move so she can join me, it is as though she cannot live life without me. I am her “rescuer and provider.”
Hear wisdom speak: “Blessed is the man who listens to me, watching daily at my door, waiting at my doorway.”
Bella is a constant reminder of those three very important words: listening, watching and waiting. May God give us no peace until we look only unto Him!
Prayer: Father, May we learn to depend only on You as the way, the truth and the source of life each moment. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
Scripture for Today: Proverbs 8:34 Blessed are those who listen to me, watching daily at my doors, waiting at my doorway.
