Callie Mae Blessing. She’s my furbaby. She’s my happy after a stressful day. She’s my hugs all night and a wet kiss in the morning. She’s my responsibility and I love her to pieces. She’s someone else’s responsibility for the next week and my stomach is doing cart wheels. I’m worried.
I’m praying but I’m still worried. I have to remind myself, out loud, that the Lord is sovereign and these vets are professionals. They take great care of her. She’ll be okay. I know this seems silly because she’s “just a dog” but, to me, she’s so much more. She’s my preparation for real children. This anxious, amiable, sweet pea of a dog is my baby.
“But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.”
– Matthew 6:33
I need to remind myself of this verse and to seek His kingdom before I set myself up to worry.
