Vern’s Surgery

Vern is going into elective surgery today. Maybe I should rephrase this. Vern is having surgery we determined necessary for him. As much as we liked the idea of little Verns running around, it will be easier for everyone involved to have him snipped.

Have you ever experienced something in life that was totally out of your control? Maybe a loss of a job or an illness that sent your world spinning in a different direction. But then later after you had time to reflect on the situation, you could say the experience was one of the best things that could have happened.

As Jesus walked through Galilee, healing and preaching the Good News, he saw a blind man from birth. His disciples were curious. Someone’s sin must have caused the man to be born this way. So they asked Jesus, “Who sinned, this man or his parents?”(John 9:1-2)

How often do we think when bad things happen there is a direct correlation to our sin or bad decisions? Many times, stuff happens as a result of our actions. But there are times when horrible things happen to us so the works of God might be displayed through us. Because of the man’s blindness, he had the privilege of meeting Jesus, the son of God.

The next time pain or emotional turmoil occur, take some time to reflect on how you can display the works of God through it to others. If for no other reason, it will take the focus off of yourself and bring refreshment to your soul.

Vern will be sore for a couple of days. During his recovery, he will receive a lot of love and attention from his human family. Feel free to send the little guy positive thoughts and prayers. And hopefully, God’s work will be seen.

Hello. My name is Cora. I live in Durham, North Carolina with my husband and two French Bulldogs, Vern and Bee. For thirty-two years, I taught children with unique needs. When I was eligible for retirement, I decided it was time to explore life from a different perspective. So with pen and paper, I have taken up blogging about two of the most extraordinary pets I know. More important than my pooches, is my relationship with God. I love God! He has blessed me with the gift of writing and I want to share what he is teaching me as I look through the eyes of four legged friends. So if you would like to experience how God works in all his creatures, join us on our adventure! When I first started blogging, my Frenchie, Carl inspired me through his crazy antics. But as life has it, Carl had to leave this world at the tender age of four. After a period of mourning for my little guy, I brought Vern home where he has ruled the roost. Oh, did I mention Bee, the Frenchie with a girl attitude and enough spunk to keep Vern in line. Come along beside us as we dive into God’s word and learn morsels of the treasures that only the scriptures can teach us. Vern and Bee would love to get to know you as well, so please feel free to follow us and share your comments….
