MY BUDDY DURING THE PANDEMIC! TEBO
SO HERE IS OUR BIG BOY, TEBOW! WHO HAS LOVED EVERYONE BEING HOME! HE CAME TO US SUFFERING, AND RECOVERING FROM FOUR BROKEN RIBS AND BRUISES TWO YEARS AGO, CAUSED BY A VERY MEAN INDIVIDUAL! OUR VET SAID HE NEEDED A QUIET PLACE TO REHAB. HE NEVER LEFT OUR HOME. NOW, IF HE SEES A LARGE ANIMAL CRATE, HE PANICS, WE HAD NO IDEA HE WOULD GET THIS BIG! HE’S A GREAT PYRENEES, WITH ONLY ONE WISH: TO BE BRUSHED AND LOVED ALL THE TIME! THE VET KEEPS US SUPPLIED WITH MEDICATION TO RELAX
HIM. GOD FORBID A STORM COMES!
BUT LOOK AT HIM NOW! HE WAS KEPT IN A CAGE SO LONG HE DID NOT KNOW WHAT GRASS WAS! UNFORTUNATELY, DUE TO BEING CRUELLY LOCKED UP WITH TWO SMALL DOGS , HIS BACK HIPS AND MUSCLES DID NOT GROW AS THEY SHOULD HAVE, BECAUSE OF THAT MALICIOUS ACT, HE’S SHOWING EARLY SIGNS OF HIP DYSPLASIA, NO WORRIES! HE WILL BE TAKEN CARE OF THE REST OF HIS LIFE!
PROVERBS 12:10. Read what GOD SAYS ABOUT HIS ANIMALS! “TAKE CARE OF THEM!”
“THE BEST DEED OF A CRUEL PERSON IS HIS WORST!”. He does NOT ASK US, HE TELLS US!” THIS HOLDS TRUE WITH ALL OF MANKIND, ESPECIALLY HIS PRECIOUS LITTLE
CHILDREN. where there is a need, we must go. NOT ONE MEAN BONE IN HIS BODY! HE LIVES TO GO TO OUR PARK CLOSE BY AND PLAY WITH ALL THE CHILDREN!
ISN’T GOD GOOD!
WE NEED TO LAUGH SOME
THERE WILL BE ANOTHER TIME TO CRY!
ECCLESIASTES 3:4 - FOR NOW, LET’S
REJOICE! WE HAVE A VACCINE!
HAVE YOU READ THIS SOUTHERN GIRL’S STORY
ABOUT HER FAMILY’S TRIP TO NANA’S AND PAPA’S
IN FLORIDA FOR CHRISTMAS?
IF NOT, THIS IS REQUIRED READING OVER CHRISTMAS
HOLIDAY! NO QUESTIONS ASKED! ONE ADDITIONAL REQUIREMENT -
YOU MUST LAUGH!
HAVE A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY￼ NEW YEAR￼!
The year of 2020 will soon be in the real view mirror!
ITS JESUS’ BIRTHDAY! LET US REJOICE AND BE GLAD IN IT!!
The first time I heard of the word COVID, CORONA VIRUS or however you choose to call it,￼ was on my birthday in March.
I had been quarantined. A hospital employee, was performing tests on a relative, ultimately tested positive. Not knowing if I contracted it, I was ￼told to remain home for a minimum of 10 days. That’s when my office called, asking if I was I staying home. Of course, I was.
Fortunately, I didn’t test positive.
My family called me, wishing me a happy birthday, and saying “it will be gone in a couple days, Lee Lee,” my sweet Caroline said, we are sending you air hugs!” I didn’t want air hugs, I wanted my babies in front of me.
That is how my year began. Give thanks in ALL situations! I wasn’t having it. That is how Christ teaches us, right? Not that day. I resisted.
But later, I saw the light. He sees our hearts.
So I compiled a list of some funny things I wanted to pass on. I realize it is untold the pain and agony so many of you have and are still going through.
I decided just today, it’s better to laugh than to cry, to pray without ceasing, stop complaining, and count my many blessings.
Yesterday, I had a message from one of my closest friends, now a priest in Pine Bluff. I receive messages usually around 5:00 a.m. often from her, simply asking “can I pray for you today?” No amount of money can be more meaningful to us, than someone asking to pray for us. That kind of love is not of this world. It’s an intangible gift of love from our Heavenlyly Father. . I’m praying for everyone today!
I chose to laugh at some of these ridiculous experiences. Why?
This is why!
Laughter is given to all of us from God. It helps us cope with sadness in life.
God must have an incredible sense
“The wicked plot against the godly. They snarl at them in defiance. But the Lord just laughs, for He sees their day of judgment coming.”
Psalm 37:12, pretty powerful stuff!
“A time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn, and a time to dance.” Ecclesiastes 3:4
“Blessed are you who hunger now, for you will be satisfied. Blessed are you who weep now, for you will laugh!” Luke 6:21
There is our confirmation!
My prayer is one of these scriptures might feed your soul with His heavenly Word, God be with you and yours as you travel through these days of turmoil, knowing this to shall pass! And we all said Amen!
