Roobie, our beautiful Vizsla, turned ten years old today amid considerable celebration (a huge thunder storm that had her cowering in a closet). Nevertheless, she has managed to cull the best of her ruminations from the month of June, and she offers them here:
6/1/11: It seems to Roobie that human nature has a very high opinion of itself.
6/3/11: Roobie does not film herself for all the world to see. She prefers BEING THERE to virtual reality.
6/5/11: Beware the fruitless habit of digging up other dogs' bones, says Roo, who digs for her own stuff. Her motto is, "You do you -- me, too..."
6/6/11: Roobie has been given a great big pair of Songlasses that do not block the Son! What a gift!
6/7/11: Roo remembers this time last year: the RAPID unseating and exit of Helen Thomas -- an outcome that said, loud and clear, "God will not be mocked."
6/8/11: Roobie agrees with Oswald Chambers that God is not a blessing machine & that we learn to worship Him in trying circumstances.
6/9/11: Regarding the Anthony Wiener scandal, my dog wonders why people "in power" so often fail to realize that hot dogs generally end up on the BBQ, charcoal-broiled.
6/10/11: Roo croons to an old protest song, "Where have men of honor gone? Long time passing!"
6/14/11: My dog says it doesn't matter what others are doing; I am to follow Christ and Him Only.
6/16/11: Roo is asking about unity in Christ. Are we one -- or not? In Him -- or not? She doesn't understand denominations!
6/18/11: When trials come, Roobie say to "Remember the evidence of the past, how God even raised the iron ax head -- and Lazarus!" Amen
6/19/11: Roobie sees that Christ did not come to found a religion and wonders how we ended up back in the old temple.
6/20/11: Roobie sees the saints of God assembling by city (the saints of Ephesus, at Phillippi, etc.) -- not by sect!
6/21/11: She may be "only a dog," but Roo seeks to get -- with all her getting -- understanding from the Word of God.
6/22/11: Roobie reminds me that we are "living stones" who are set into Christ, being built into God's spiritual temple (2 Pet 4-5a).
6/23/11: Roobie is ten years old today -- a wizened old girl...
