It's funny how things happen in your lives that can change everything.
What was supposed to be a simple surgery turned into a journey and ended with a completely new perspective on health and well being.
A child's encounter with a dog changed our lives and created stress and sadness. We had a pet. Now we don't have a pet.
We go along each day and we like the stability of our lives. We like that, aside from a few not far from home adventures, we do the same thing day in and day out. We can count on that. It makes us feel secure.
Then one day everything changes.
Is there anything you can count on?
Thank goodness that God never changes. He always stays the same. He's always there - even when we can't see Him, even though we can't feel him.
"Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you." Deuteronomy 31:6
ps. Update for Good Bye Boomer - good news of a sort. It turns out that Boomer didn't bite the little boy. There were no teeth marks at all, he swiped at him with his very large paw. Even though that wouldn't have changed our decision, it still makes me feel a little better.
