I’m the proud dog mom to several adorable Cavalier King Charles Spaniels. They have many wonderful qualities, one of which is their soulful eyes and endearing expression. Lily, shown in the photo, is modeling her beautiful eyes for you! One look into her eyes and I feel hope—that sweet knowing inside that tomorrow will be okay. I’m sure all you pet parents out there know what I’m talking about. . .
On a hard day, you sit in your comfy chair snuggled with your beloved pet. They gaze upward at you as if you are the most special thing on earth. You pause, look into their eyes, and feel comforted. You may not know what tomorrow holds, but somehow you feel things will work themselves out. I think God, in his wisdom, knew we’d need a little help while walking this broken road, so he created dogs, with their adoring expressions to help us feel more hopeful.
Dear friend, 2020 has been filled with pain for many folks. But we must not lose hope! Take a moment and snuggle with your beloved pets. Exhale any worry about 2021, and inhale God’s peace. I beleive that God wants us to feel hopeful about the New Year. He wants us to know that we are MUCH LOVED, and that he is always with us, and will care for us. There is a reason that God describes himself as “the God of Hope” in the Bible. In him, there is always hope!
“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him.” —Romans 15:13
Wishing you comfort and joy in 2021!
Love, Leila Grandemange 🧡
