I know I've mentioned before that Mindy likes to sit on my lap when I'm having my quiet time, right? Well, today she has me wondering: Is she a really smart dog? Or simply a creature of habit?
I walked in the door after taking the boys to school and let Mindy out of her kennel, just like always. Then I went into the living room and got my Bible, brought it out to the table and put it down. Mindy was following me closely and although I had not sat down, myself, she was already trying to climb up in my chair.
I had to get some meat out of the freezer to thaw for dinner and one or two other quick little things and Mindy was right on my heels, as if saying, Come on, Karen. It's time. I want to get up on your lap and listen to you read!
It all made me wonder, did she see me put the Bible on the table and she's smart enough to know what it means when I have my Bible in hand? Or is she simply a creature of habit and she knows, first I leave the house with the boys, then I come back in without them, then she gets to sit on my lap?
I'm not sure, but I do know this: Mindy is a sweet addition to our family. And I am so thankful for the way God is using her to show me that it is entirely possible for Him to love me when I am doing absolutely nothing but sitting on His lap, enjoying His presence.
May the LORD bless you and keep you, and make His face shine upon you. I pray He will give you perfect peace this weekend.
Please come back Monday for another video devotion.
