Aww Mondays – Always Been a Dog Person

I suppose I have always been a dog person. I am probably under two years of age in this image and the I am pretty sure the dog does not belong to me, but that never stopped me from befriending a canine.

The very first dog of my very own was the black cocker spaniel we named Muggs. I am about six years old in this photo and Muggs was a family member all the way through my high school graduation.

Meet Ranger. Yes, I found a stray wandering through base camp, in Vietnam and adopted him. He stayed around for a few months, but when I got reassigned, Ranger stayed behind with the guys in the barracks.

Four years ago our most recent canine joined the family. Lucy is actually the 4th Cocker Spaniel that has been in my life and the breed is definitely my favorite. The “House Princess” is priceless and we wouldn’t trade her for anything. She is so much company and entertainment that we don’t know what we would do without her. So, you see, I’ve always be a dog person at heart.

Monday’s Music Moves Me

Welcome, welcome, welcome. The guest conductor responsibilities for the April edition of 4M falls to yours truly. I don’t know if this is going to end well, but let’s give it a whirl. This first Monday of the month is a free choice week, so let’s see what you’ve been listening to lately. I have a free Spotify account and my playlists include 90’s country, 60’s pop, Classic Rock, a Dwight Yoakam list, Eric Clapton list, Blues, Southern Gospel, and a Contemporary Christian play list. So where do we begin?

Yesterday was one of the greatest days in human history. All of Christianity is based on the events surrounding two dates; Christmas, which marks the birth of Christ and Resurrection Sunday (Easter) which marks the death, burial, and resurrection of the Savior. In celebration of the fulfillment of prophecy and an anthem that every Christian can claim, I give you, “Ain’t No Grave”.

I can rejoice in the fact that on the day that I draw my last breath on this earth, I will draw my first breath in eternity at the feet of my Savior and hear His voice say, “Well done good and faithful servant…enter into the joy of your Lord.” I pray that you will be there too. Have a blessed week.

  1. Hope you had a wonderful Easter. Hard to believe our mom was a big cat person and as a little girl, she didn’t even like dogs. Now she is an over the top dog lover and cats have taken a very back seat. Some people never change, others change a lot I guess.
