Why am I discouraged? Why is my heart so sad? I will put my hope in God! I will praise him again–my Savior and my God! Psalm 43:5
Sometimes we just need a little word of encouragement to help us on our way. I pray this Bible verse and comforting image of my Cavalier King Charles Spaniel will be a ray of sunshine for your day. There’s just something so special about the loving gaze of my dogs. It’s as if God is speaking through them saying,
I love you dear child. I am with you. I will never leave you nor forsake you.
“I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” —Matthew 28:20
Dogs are good for our health! Each time I hug my dogs I feel more hopeful, happier, and healthier!
I’ll never forget coming home after an appendectomy, having some complications, and spiraling into depression due to the ongoing pain. My doctors were amazing, and prescribed what I needed to heal physically. But emotionally, it was another story.
