The Treasure of it All

Vern’s bottom was plastered across the pillows as he leaned towards the window with hopes of spotting his favorite person. Even though the black truck had just pulled out, Vern was still hopeful that it would return sooner than later.

But as the minutes ticked by, the black dog wouldn’t leave his position. He continued to have his head pointed forward and body erect as he waited for the truck and the driver’s return.

How often do we stop everything we are doing to wait? And as we position ourselves in this limbo state, what are we missing out on? Each day has hidden treasures just waiting to be found. If only we could take our sites off of the jewels down the path of life and fix them on the everyday riches surrounding us.

 “The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field. When a man found it, he hid it again, and in his joy he went and sold all he had and bought that field.” (Matthew 13:44)

Life is a field with treasures that God has hidden, unique to each of us. If we can take our eyes off of what we think is best for ourselves and place our sites on God’s hidden riches, we will discover the true meaning of our existence and be filled with a sense of satisfaction that comes only from above.

Vern finally fell asleep as he waited until the return of the black truck, only to be awakened by the sound of the motor as it pulled into the driveway. He quickly dashed across the floor, through the doggy door, and into the screened in porch where he was greeted by his favorite person. And as I looked at the interaction, I had to smile at the treasure of it all.

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….
