I have been searching for a kennel for Rupert but it seems he is too tall for most. Finally, I came across one that is fitting. Here is the description the lady posted on craigslist. ;)

"We overestimated how large the pup would grow,
so this gigantic cage, it's got to go!
And though we got it used and it's a little twisted,
it's still a a bargain for what we've listed.
But let's not obscure its best feature:
this cage can hold most any creature!
Be it giant dog or smallish calf,
miniature horse or short giraffe,
billy goats gruff, pot-bellied pig,
"baby" alligator grown too big.
Yes, any pet would love this billet,
please take it quick before the pup can fill it!
P.S.You might want to bring a friend, it's pretty heavy,
and don't forget the van or flat-bed Chevy! "

It is in Waupaca and I will be picking it up Thursday afternoon.
Fitting don't you think?

Truly the light is sweet, And it is pleasant for the eyes to behold the sun
- From the book of Ecclesiastes chapter 11 verse 7

When we understand the outside of things, we think we have them: the Lord puts his things in subdefined, suggestive shapes, yielding no satisfactory meaning to the mere intellect, but unfolding themselves to the conscience and heart, to the man himself, in the process of life-effort. According as the new creation, that of reality, advances in him, the man becomes able to understand the words, the symbols, the parables of the Lord. For life, that is, action, is alone the human condition into which the light of the Living can penetrate; life alone can assimilate life, can change food into growth.

- From Unspoken Sermons by George Macdonald

Your lovingkindness, O LORD, extends to the heavens,
Your faithfulness reaches to the skies.
Your righteousness is like the mountains of God;
Your judgments are like a great deep.
O LORD, You preserve man and beast.
How precious is Your lovingkindness, O God!
And the children of men take refuge in the shadow of Your wings.
They drink their fill of the abundance of Your house;
And You give them to drink of the river of Your delights.
For with You is the fountain of life;
In Your light we see light.

From Psalm 36 verses 7-9

.:Continuing a Story:.

I had spoken the other day about finishing some things that I had begun a while back. One of which is a story about a woman who is called to the displaced persons of the world.

You know, sometimes when bridges are not bridges anymore, they still serve a purpose. Some men are like that as well, they were at one point built up for a seemingly great purpose but eventually fell and basically crumbled to the ground under the weight of the world. There was one such man that Echo dreamed of. He was a quiet man with a gray hair or two who had a great future and hope. She wondered how he could make his way to the pantry each day with such uncoordinated feet that he was given.

Philippians 1:3-6
I thank my God upon every remembrance of you, always in every prayer of mine making request for you all with joy, for your fellowship in the gospel from the first day until now, being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ

.:Comfort Dear Child:.

When visiting my friend tonight in the hospital after having her baby, she spoke to me of a great comfort of holding her child upon her breast. She said she wished she could have The Lord hold her like that. In some ways He truly does.

These things have I spoken unto you, being yet present with you.
But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost
whom The Father will send in my name
He shall teach you all things
and bring all things to your remembrance
whatsoever I have said unto you.
Peace I leave with you
my peace I give unto you
not as the world gives do I give to you.
Let not your heart be troubled,
neither let it be afraid.

-Jesus's words in John chapter 14 verses 25-27

I have learned a bit the past few days about The Lord's heart. He longs to be our comfort. We cannot trust others or other things to be The Great Comforter. When we do try to, we end up with insecurities and soon comes sin. His comfort is a beautiful blanket that warms us and covers us woven with love and truth. Each strand is carefully knit together with the most valuable thread imaginable. He is thankful to share this with us.

Comfort ye, comfort ye my people, saith your God.
Speak ye comfort to Jerusalem, and cry unto her,
that her warfare is accomplished, that her iniquity is pardoned:
for she hath received of the LORD'S hand double for all her sins.

-From the book of Isaiah chapter 40 verses 1 and 2

His words of conviction, are usually followed with words of comfort,
for He that has torn will heal us.

-From Matthew Henry's Commentary

The longer we live with one another,
the more comfort we need Him to provide.
Be thankful, He will provide it.
This is the heart of The God I know and love.
I have been hurt and caused hurt.
Sometimes Jesus is a lot like me.
He is selfless in His intentions,
sadly ours are often not so.
At the root of it, through it all,
I knew He must increase and I must decrease.
There is no one like Him and we can never provide
the lasting comfort and security He can.

“Remember, we all stumble, every one of us.
That's why it's a comfort to go hand-in-hand.”

-Emily Kimbrough

.:Perfectly Fitted:.

Perfectly Fitted

Come to me
All who are weary and burdened
And I will give you rest
Put my yoke
Upon your shoulders
It might appear heavy at first
But it is perfectly fitted
To your curves
Learn from me
For I am gentle
And humble of heart
When you are
Yoked to me
Your weary souls will find rest
For my yoke is easy my burden is light
My yoke is easy my burden is light
And it is perfectly fitted
To your curves

.:Poem 1:.

Well, I need some way to express my heart these days so it may as well be in poetry.
Here goes...

Lifeless frozen crystals hang over the hollow entry to the cave. They melt faster than anything the world has ever seen as the all consuming fire passes through. When inside, the walls are illumined and can be seen for all they are. Inside, warmth fills the air and a breeze flows from every flame. There is no need to be cold here. Love. Let your heart be warmed dear friend.

Hebrews 12:29
Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear:
For our God is a consuming fire.

Mercy is one of the greatest, if not the greatest expression of love we will ever see.

"But go ye and learn what this means, I desire mercy, and not sacrifice: for I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance."

-Jesus's words in Matthew chapter 9 verse 13

To Him who made great lights
For His mercy endures forever
The sun to rule by day
For His mercy endures forever
The moon and stars to rule by night
For His mercy endures forever.

-From Psalm 136:7-9

No wonder God let Adam and Eve sin. That He may be glorified and known by His mercy and His righteousness. By His mercy, He draws all who come to Him.

to see if you truly love Him
with all your heart and soul.
Serve only the Lord your God
and fear Him alone.
Obey His commands,

and cling to Him."

From the book of Deuteronomy Chapter 13 verses 3-4

.:Abiding and Knowing:.

"And this is life eternal
that they might know Thee
the only true God,
and Jesus Christ,
whom Thou hast sent."

-Jesus's words in the book of John chapter 17 verse 3

Jesus answered and said unto him,
If a man love me,
he will keep my words:
and my Father will love him,
and we will come unto him,
and make our abode with him.

-Jesus's words in the book of John chapter 14 verse 23
