As much as I hate to admit it, our beloved dog, Miss Ellie Mae is a thief! That’s all there is to it! Last Friday afternoon, Steve spent an hour picking up “stuff” in the front yard that she had drug home. Among those things, which included various bones, milk jugs, and trash, was a very nice camo rubber boot and a child’s life jacket. Steve took these valuable items back to the neighbors, who weren’t home at the time, so he left them in front of their door. Sunday when we pulled in the drive, that boot had found its way back through the woods! It was laying in the exact same spot in the front yard! Miss Ellie was at it again.
Have you ever gotten disgusted with yourself because you keep doing the same thing over and over? We realize that we are in sin and need to get our lives right with the Lord. We repent. We confess, and we pray for forgiveness. Yet, sometimes like that old boot, we find ourselves right back at the same place all over again. I am so thankful that if “we walk in the Light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship one with another and the blood of Jesus Christ, His Son cleanseth us from all unrighteousness. . . .If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins. . . “(I John 1:7 & 9)
Hang in there! The Lord hasn’t given up on you. God Bless, Courtney
