FICKLE LOVER

Normally I title posts which concern Hero The Wonder Dog, "Lessons from Hero".  Today I KNEW I would grab your attention with FICKLE LOVER!  


Hero has the life--a dog's life--everything one could desire.  I anticipate his every need and want--

   Three walks a day with ample time to sniff each and every blade of grass along the way

   A bowl full of the best dog food--laced with joint supplement

   A trip to the Doggy Spa once a month to have a bath, his nails done, his ears cleaned and a good rub down

   He sleeps in my bed--on my chair--by my side--whenever I am home

   Protection from things which might harm him--even when he is not so smart and goes after a MUCH larger dog--I snatch him up

   Dog treats galore

   A daily brushing

You get the drift--I have made Hero's life good----VERY GOOD

AND THEN---the FICKLE LITTLE SPOILED DOG---shows his appreciation by being enticed away by the first beautiful blond who paid attention to him-he dropped me like a hot potato.

ACTUALLY---I had a great friend and her mother come see me.  We put Mom in my bed and we slept on the daybed/trundle.  I went to brush my teeth and the little weasel jumped in the bed with my beautiful friend and proceeded to spend the night by her side.  I NEVER!!!  If you can't trust your dog---who can you trust???

HMMM--reminds me of our relationship with God.  We love Him---and He showers blessings upon us---but let The World send a little enticement our way and we are off on a dog chase.  Forgetting our First Love---rejecting Real Love--all in a quest for what we think will be better.  All to find out--after our foray to the Dark Side---HE is The Real Thing--The Faithful One.  Though we turn from Him--He never deserts us--never rejects us--is constantly and persistently by our side.  WE are the fickle ones!

The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases; 
 his mercies never come to an end;
 they are new  every morning;
great is your faithfulness
Lamentations 3:23-24

  1. It is amazing how we can act just like Hero...turn our back on God and run full force to whatever seems better. Thanks, LuLu. A lesson I always need to be reminded of.

  2. I understand what you say. Good analogy, Lulu.

    The other day when I was at the doctor's checking that I still had a sense of humour, I told him I envy my dog. He is well fed and watered and always well looked after. I wish I were a dog.

    He asked me: "How long have you felt this way?"

    I replied: "Ever since I was a puppy!"

    He asked me to get on the couch. I told him I am not allowed on the couch.

    He then dropped his pen by accident. I said: "Now you're taking things too far. Go and fetch your own pen; I'm not your dog!"

    He gave me an injection to calm me down. He said it was my annual booster vaccine dog treatment. Now I scratch my ear with my leg. Embarrassing when on the bus. Especially having to jump off the moving bus to commune with every other tree!

    God bless.

Your comments keep my writing and often cause me to think. A written form of a hug or a pat on the back and an occasional slap into reality---I treasure them all!
