Pet of the week Josie

Josie on adoption day.

Since adopting Josie from the Lexington Human Society, I am now a part of an early morning community of dog walkers. We bundle up in our coats, hats, and gloves while we hold our little plastic bags.

I enjoy the morning walks while it is still dark outside.  It is so quiet in the morning. Sometimes, the silence is interrupted by a hum of a car that is warming in a neighbor’s driveway. Most often the silence is broken by the barking of dog. 

Josie is a welcome addition to our home.

Tasty Tuesday

I think we are an unlikely trio. From outward appearances, we don’t look like we have much in common. Yet we share an uncommon friendship.  Maybe our friendship has deepened over the years because we learn from each other.  Maybe we have the unspoken agreement that we respect and forgive each other. 

 When sharp differences invade our conversations, we differ in our responses.  Here are the roles I have assigned us of us.... peacemaker, religious educator, confronter, and avoider.  How do you handle differences with friends? 

Our love for Christ is the bond that binds our friendship together.

Monday Musings

"Every child should have a safe place in their life."
Senator Joe Manchin

In our community we have a safe place...
It is the Nest. 

"The Nest Center for Women, Children, and Families is a local non-profit organization that provides a safe place for education, counseling, and support to children and families in crisis." 

The  Nest provides
  • Child care
  • Crisis Case Management
  • Domestic Violence Assistance
  • Parenting Education and Support

In the midst of crisis, it is comforting to know that there is a safe place for women, children and families. 
At a recent dinner meeting, our club had the honor to 
listen to staff from the Nest.

Sunday Scripture

Joyful are people of integrity,
who follow the instructions of the LORD.
Joyful are those who obey his laws
and search for him with all their hearts.
They do not compromise with evil,
and they walk only in his paths.
You have charged us
to keep your commandments carefully.
Oh, that my actions would consistently
reflect your decrees!
Then I will not be ashamed
when I compare my life with your commands.
As I learn you righteous regulations,
I will thank you by living as I should!
I will obey your decrees.
Please don't give up on me!"
Psalm 119: 1-6 (NLT)

Pets of the week, Cricket and Bella

Cricket and Bella are this week’s pets. Cricket is  wearing a cute parka with faux fur collar. Bella is sporting a pink doggie fashion collar.  Bella and Cricket were adopted from the Lexington Humane Society. Cricket was adopted over fourteen year ago. I am not sure about Bella's adoption date.

I met these two dogs while visiting at a local dog park. 
J. William Sayre founded the Lexington Humane Society in 1889. Since then, the Humane Society has been providing emergency assistance animals in crisis. In 2015, the Society provided assistance for over 1,400 animals. 
Mission Statement of Lexington Humane Society:
To advocate the compassionate treatment of animals;
