He wants to BE WITH US...that's all...

I'm posting today at 4 pm which is odd.  


On Sunday night we got home kinda late from prayer service at CC and going out to eat with a bunch of people.  I only got a little bit of time with Max and Maddie before it was time for Larry to put them in their cages to go to sleep for the night.  I was sad.  I almost cried.  Although we had a spiritually high day all around at the church, I missed my snuggle time with the dogs afterward so much...an important part of my day was missing.

Last night we got home from making a hospital visit to St. Joe's to visit Danny & Josie Martell and their new baby girl, Arianna.  Upon arriving home I couldn't wait to settle in with the dogs and I and stayed with them  until it was time to go to sleep.   I fell asleep right between them and Larry had to say, "hon, it's time for me to put them in their cages now...you have to get up now."  (Oh, darn!)  If you haven't guessed by now, I LOVE our sweet bulldogs.  I could have blogged last night but my longing to catch up on my time with them won out.  I just wanted to put everything aside to give them time.  That's why there was no blog post here this morning.

I think that's how God looks at us when we miss our time with Him...He's not mad at us...He just wants so much to BE WITH US.  He longs for it.  And when we miss our time with Him one day He longs for more the next.  He loves us so much.  And even when we don't put things aside and give Him the time He deserves He still loves us and hopes that we'll come close and have our time later.  And so, He waits...

I learn so much about God from my dogs.  Really.  I do.
