Today I got the chance to take my two dogs, Randolph a 7 year old white boxer, and Raleigh a 6 month old boxer/hound? mix to Belew's Lake for a Memorial Day weekend swim. It was so much fun. Raleigh didn't know what to expect and excitedly attacked and lunged at the breaking waves on the shore. I was also able to allow my nearly 3ft Savannah Monitor the chance to "swim" in our bathtub the day before. I put together a quick mash up of the experience with my cell phone camera so please forgive the lack of quality and enjoy some frolicking swimming dogs. I do believe that our heavenly Father also enjoys seeing us happy and enjoying life like I enjoyed seeing my animal buddies enjoying their swims.
Proverbs 17:22 says "A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones." Lets not live in denial of our circumstances BUT let's live in the joy of knowing our heavenly father works all things for our good and that this too shall pass, whatever your THIS is. Let's try to enjoy life like the animals in this video and pray that the Lord is pleased with the way we are carrying out our lives. God is good, and He loves you!
