The Sadie Run

Wednesday, Jan 14

Today is Sadie’s swimming/therapy day, and for the first week, until she’s used to the drill, I go along to drop her off and pick her up again, which is why I’m so late writing this blog. I know, excuses, excuses!

I continue to enjoy the respite from the snow–it’s beautiful stuff, but it just seemed endless. Little wonder–from December 16 until last weekend, we had one day when snow didn’t fall! Roofs were collapsing. Roads were impassible. I felt like a bug trapped in a tobacco can.

Of course now that I am a woman with no past, none of that matters, does it?

Sadie, after one treatment, is responding beautifully to the therapy. She’s already more active, her eyes are bright again, and she presses her muzzle to the back door the minute she hears the truck keys jingle. This is the dog I know and, of course, deeply love.

On another subject, taking a page from my friend Debbie Macomber’s book (so to speak), I’ve chosen a Bible verse for 2009. Romans 12:2 reads, “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” (KJV)

I’ve been meditating on this verse since the first of the year, mulling it over, letting it soak in. Solutions, ideas and insights have been coming ever since.

Hmmm. Do you suppose it’s actually happening? The renewal part, I mean? I’m still not clear on the proving part. Heaven knows, ‘perfect’ ain’t on the schedule–for me. Maybe it means letting God work His will through me?

Still mulling. I’ll get back to you. 🙂
