Have you ever heard the saying "dog tired"? Last weekend we babysat my niece's puppy. Oh yes, I mean "babysat". We're one of "those" kind of people. You know the ones who attribute human emotions on to our pets. I'm so bad that friends text me and get me clothes about chickens. Yeti is a black lab puppy. ADORABLE. He is all puppy! I mean ALL PUPPY. I have a yellow lab who is about 6 years old. My motto is "tired puppy means happy family". Yeti arrived Saturday. By Saturday night there was not only a tired puppy but a tired human! I still had him until Monday!! Both dogs played hard and we took lots of walks. By Monday, both dogs were pretty tired. The morning walk in the fields was not so brisk. We were weary so everything became a bit more labored and not as enjoyable. My niece came home and picked up the puppy. She texted me to let me know he had slept most of the afternoon and all night long. Weariness. The puppy weekend was tiring but it ended quickly. Sometimes though in our Christian walk we grow weary for many reasons. Sadly, some decide to quit their Christian walk, give up on God, or grow discouraged or bitter. Pastor preached a sermon on 4/7/19 in the morning service which dealt with weariness. The core text was Judges 8:4 "And Gideon came to Jordan, and passed over, he, and the three hundred men that were with him, faint, yet pursuing them." Are you weary? This is a great sermon to find encouragement. If you are in our area, April 14th begins our revival services with Pastor Mike Allison. It runs from Sunday to Friday. It will be a great time of refreshment and powerful preaching.
