I left the house at 6:45 am today. Decided for the first time to take Buddy driving with me. He's in the back seat and I'm in the front driving. It was a small leap of faith for me because I didn't want to have an accident because the dog is misbehaving. Also, I was a little apprehensive about him getting excited and going potty back there. It turned out Buddy behaved quite well with only some whining and no disasters in the back seat.
On the way home I saw the most beautiful sunrise. Very vibrant and intense dark pink colors. The east was off to my right and I turned my head back to look at it again; it was that breathtaking! By the time I arrived home, expecting to see some lingering effects of that sunrise, it was nowhere to be seen. It was a momentary experience.
So my small leap of faith was rewarded. If I was not faithful to take my son to work; if I was not faithful in trusting God to keep Buddy under control during the ride, what would have happened? I wouldn't have seen that gorgeous, one-of-a-kind painting by God on the horizon. He has so many blessings waiting for us; if only we would leap out trusting Him.
