Heads or Tails with Jean Harrison

After joining a group of women at church in doing an online devotional called "Good Morning Girls", where the women take a passage of Scripture and "S.O.A.P." it (Scripture-Observation-Application-Prayer) Jean found herself thinking through Scripture and it's application to life in her walks with her new puppy, Buddy. Here are some of her musings...

Ski Rug Top

David Jostenski

Well that's the resultant phrase I've coined  when Buddy tears down the foyer and all the rugs and runners swoosh in a westerly direction.  It's quite fascinating when a 30+ lb puppy cannot contain himself and just goes crazy with joy.  I was in our Lazy-boy chair once with the footrest up and Brian brought Buddy in from an outside walk/run.  Our dear little puppy saw me, ran pell-mell down the hall, into the living room and jumped on my foot bending it backward.  That was when I got exuberant and let out a big yell.  

   We experience "Ski Rug Top" just about everyday.  Throwing the ball down the foyer will result in everything flying that isn't nailed down.   Buddy is having the time of his life skiing down the hall on the "magic carpet" :p  Those thingies that you put under the rugs to keep them from shifting; don't work!  They wind up looking like accordian-pleats under the rugs.

    I'm trying to imagine what it would look like if followers of Christ would be filled with such exuberance and joy in serving Him.  A real world changer!

 Luke 19:37-40 "Then, as He was now drawing near the descent of the Mount of Olives, the whole multitude of the disciples began to rejoice and praise God with a loud voice for all the mighty works they had seen, saying:

            'Blessed is the King who comes in the name of the LORD!

             Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!'

And some of the Pharisees called to Him from the crowd, "Teacher, rebuke Your disciples".  But He answered and said to them, 'I tell you that if these should keep silent, the stones would immediately cry out”.  (Disclaimer: There is no affiliation with Ski Round Top, which we’re sure Buddy would love also)
