A Different Kind of Friendship

Vern and Bee have become good friends. Each morning you can find them either playing or lying next to each other in front of the fire. When coming home from a trip or just the grocery store, Vern and Bee are sitting next to each other as they wait for our return.

Friendship is one of the most incredible gifts God has given us. Another person who can be trusted with our inner secrets and feel our pain in times of sorrow. Someone who can laugh with us over our mistakes and cry with us when we are hurting.

Enoch had such a friend. In Genesis 5:24, Enoch is described differently than all the other men in the lineage between Adam and Noah. All the other men lived, had children, and then died. But with Enoch, it states “Enoch walked with God, and he was not, for God took him”.

What a cool verse. I can envision the scene. Enoch got up every morning and sought out God. And God whispered truth to Enoch and Enoch obeyed whatever he was told. Enoch loved God and wanted to please him. For three hundred years, he started each day, talking to his friend. No matter the situation, Enoch confided in God.

Then one day, as Enoch was discussing life with God, God made a decision. Why should Enoch live on this earth any longer? So God said to Enoch, “Why don’t you come to my house?”

Being obedient and full of faith, Enoch accepted the invitation. And now Enoch resides with God in heaven. And once we make our way to meet our creator, I believe Enoch will be right there to tell us what an incredible friend God is.

Vern and Bee have a friendship that has grown deeper with time. Our two French bull dogs sharing life together under the same roof. No words necessary. Just a compassion and concern for each other.

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….
