Below are highlights from the august Roobie for month of August. She is again focused on what Margaret Atwood raised when she said, “There is just one race -- the human race -- and we are all members of it.”
8/1/11: As Roo runs free in the woods, I watch grateful for such a devoted companion and I hear God say,"That's how I feel about you."
8/2/11: Roo reminds me that only new wineskins can carry new wine; old wineskins are too brittle and will crack and spill. Mercy!
8/4/11: During my walk with Roobie, she says there R 2 things I can do: pray and vote (she, as a mere dog, can only do one of these, and she is doing it)!
8//8/11: Roo doesn't see what's so "extremist" about fiscal responsibility.
8/9/11: Roobie reminds me that "to forgive" means "to give for God to handle." Therefore "give-for-ness" = forgiveness? Yes, says Roo.
8/10/11: Once again, Roobie is a good pointer, today reminding me that GOLD, in heaven, is only PAVEMENT.
8/11/11: Roo points out that the phrase "in Christ" or its equivalent appears 172 times in the New Testament.
8/13/11: My dog and I hike every day after our Quiet Time with the Lord. It is a prayer walk, during which we listen and learn.
8/14/11: Roo notices that "impassable" is a lot like "impossible" and is glad she remembers the parting of the Red Sea.
8/17/11: My dog Roo is almost entirely gray -- me too. God says it's wisdom, and it shows. What a lovely thing for Him to say!
8/18/11: Roobie notes the difference between prepositions. I live & labor IN Christ, which must mean BY Him and not merely FOR Him. Eye-opener!
8/20/11: On the trail, Roobie freezes and perks up her ears; I hear it, too. Something is there. We heard it, but we can't see it. Yet.
8/21/11: I tell Roo it's our 40th wedding anniversary and she says she already knows. She adds that she knows a lot more than we realize.
8/23/11:Roo points to utter simplicity: in Christ = in Life. We may be in a religion and yet not be in Christ (she's a short-haired pointer).
8/24/11: My dog "gets" that the Church is PEEPS, each a temple of the Holy Spirit. Though we may meet in a building, it's just a building, not the Church.
