10/2/11: My dog just realized it was "circumcision" that made the walls of Jericho come tumbling down. Following God's instructions was worthwhile!
10/7/11: Roobie says "sin" is not wrong doing; it is wrong BEING -- a determined independence from God (an hereditary human trait) she does not have!
10/9/11: Roobie is reading the NT with new eyes and now sees the phrase "in Christ" as key. We are one body -- in His Body. We in Him, and He in us!
10/12/11: Roo says the phrase "in Christ" helps her obtain the simplicity of Life vs life with a lower-case L.
10/13/11: Roo sees us placed in Christ, set into Him like jewels, held by His power, filled by His spirit - in Him, seated at the right hand of the Father!
10/14/11: Roobie asked if humans are addicted to DOING, and I said, "I think we are addicted to trying to make ourselves feel better."
10/19/11: My dog says the salvation we received from God in Christ is present and permanent; it's our sanctification that's in process...
10/20/11: Roobie and I seek His face and His will to be our daily Bread, which we value above all earthly treasures.
10/21/11: My DOG says I am GOD's beloved even when I make a mistake. It's a hard lesson -- & even harder to let GOD fix it, since I cannot. Good DOG!
10/22/11:Roobie says God works ALL things to good for those who love Him -- ALL!
10/24/11: Roo knows that tulip bulbs are compelled to seek the Sun, their source of Life. So are peeps, says Roo, who are hardwired to seek the Son!
10/25/11: My dog walks with me in paths of righteousness; though sometimes are stray, we are always led back safely.
10/29/11: Roobie is a vessel for honor, sanctified and useful for the Master. She says I am no different, though not a DOG.
10/30/11:My dog says the blooms may look alike, but fake ones are manmade, and real ones are not.
10/31/11: Roobie listens by stopping entirely the minute she hears something. It's a level of readiness to listen that I have only started to learn.
