Vern and Bee are waiting to get the sign from their human father that it’s time to walk. They are sitting still, listening for any indication of movement. Hoping for the call they love to hear. “Vern, are you ready for your walk? Bee, are you coming?”

This is the season of waiting. As I write this, there are twelve days before Christmas. A time of celebrations and presents. A time for children to build imaginary expectations of what they might find under the tree. And a time for everyone to contemplate the meaning of this season.

Christmas music is declaring that Jesus Christ is born. Go tell it on the mountain, Jesus Christ is born. I find it interesting that the word “is” is used instead of “was”. Present tense. And that is where you can find the present that won’t disappoint. A present which gives life.

2 Corinthians 3:15-16 “Even to this day when Moses is read, a veil covers their hearts. But whenever anyone turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away.”

You see, turning to the Lord is a gift. When we understand the real reason for the season, a veil is taken off of our hearts, and we enter a new life.

Bee and Vern don’t understand the meaning of the tree that has been placed in our living space. A reminder of the season. A reminder of the life that has been given to us so that we might live for eternity in relationship with God.

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….
