This morning I’m very sad.
If you know me, you know that I LOVE my dogs very much and I have a strong emotional attachment to them. If you have dogs you will understand. Cesar Millan, the dog whisperer, would lecture me thoroughly for treating my dogs like human beings instead of like dogs. Oh well, too late now. They are my children. (Please don’t judge me.) I am about to leave them and my heart is breaking. I can’t stop crying. I’ll spend just a couple more days trying to help them adjust to a new home and a new family and a different routine and then I have to let them go.
I keep reminding myself that this call to Uganda is bigger than my dogs and I am willing to do this but it’s like I’m abandoning my babies. For all you dog lovers who know what this feels like, please help me through these next two days by praying for me and for Jack and Daisy. I can’t stop this painful separation…I just have to walk thru it on my way to God’s call on my life.
Please also pray for Jennifer Hollowell as she takes on the responsibility of two very high maintenance but lovable dachshunds. Her household is about to be turned upside down. She really is a saint and I thank God for providing this home for my dogs.
I’m opening up my hands and giving my little companions to The Lord for His care and for the sake of the Kingdom. If I can do this…the rest will be easy peasy.
