It was just a regular Friday Movie Night with my "new" good friend Susan, when I got a phone call from a strange number at 11:00PM. I said hello, and then I heard the words that made my heart leap for joy...
"umm, we have your dog"!!
Yes! Burt is Home!!! He had been with this sweet couple for a week and one day! And I will say, from the size of his stomach, he was well taken care of! So, we decided to not tell Del until he got home. It was such a sweet reunion. Del dropped his keys and Burt immediately ran to him!
Our "family" is back together and we couldn't be more excited!!
While Burt was away, God was very gracious to teach me a few life lessons through this hard situation.
Here are the two main ones:
Why have you spent so much time praying about a lost dog to return home, when there are so many lost souls around you that long for a heavenly home?
Are you as desperate for Me as you are for your dog to come home?
God really can use everyday situations to cause you to evaluate and return your focus to Him.
I am very appreciative of those lessons, and I'm also grateful to have him home!
