Emma has a puppy that she is trying to train, he is a golden retriever. He is ALL PUPPY! Our yard stays a mess, he’s dug out flower pots, torments the cats and he keeps retrieving toys from the neighbors yard to our yard…funny, but not funny! Last week Emma caught him pestering the cats, she came in and said, "I just don’t think he is worth it." I had to laugh!!! How many times on a bad day do we wonder if all the hard work of diligent parenting is worth it? Will they ever grow into responsible adults?
God is so good to continually bring us opportunities to grow and learn from each other…and even from our puppy, who will be a faithful, obedient dog one day as we love him, train him and discipline him!
Remember THIS TOO SHALL PASS!
