Technically, this is a test page.  Why?  Because it’s full of pictures of my dogs.

However…all three of these animals have been very important in my ability to come to faith, and then to strengthen it.  Especially Katie.  (For more on Katie, read here or here.)

  1. Test site, my foot! You’re just a proud Paw! ♪♫ All God’s creatures got a place in the choir ♪♫ Some sing low and some sing higher ♪♫ Some sing out loud on a telephone wire ♪♫ Some just clap their hands, or paws, or anything they’ve got now ♪♫

  2. She’s so cute! (Boomer, too) You’re right, I think Jesus is going to take good care of her until you see each other again. I’m sorry you had to do that, though, but if Katie loved you even half as much as y’all loved her, and I’m positive she did and more, then I think she’d want you to be happy. I know I never knew her except in stories, but I think she’d want you to celebrate her life and all she’s done with you. Stay strong and smile every day (:

    • Thanks Stephanie for your heartfelt and kind words. God has blessed us with so much grace as we are more joyful than sorrowful when we think of Katie. We miss her terribly but know she is healthy and happy and we will see her again one day. :)
