Blessings or Worries

Vern doesn’t have much to worry about. All he cares about is a dish full of food and the freedom to go and come as he pleases. His days aren’t filled with the worries of the world. Instead, he is only consumed with finding a place to rest during these hot days in North Carolina.

On the other hand, I can easily find myself focused on the weeds in my life. So often, I neglect to see the flowers that sprout up in the mass of unwelcomed wild plants. Instead of counting my blessings, I am centered on how to remove the unwanted happenings of my day.

It’s only when I think about the gracious gifts I’ve been given that I can be content with life. Gifts that have been provided by God to demonstrate his goodness towards me and to reveal his glory.

When I realize that life is a gift, I find myself filled with gratitude and the negative thoughts flee. And just like Vern, I can calm myself down and relish the days, no matter how hot they become.

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….
