Relationships!

Relationships are something that is a part of everyone of our lives, and relationships, on all levels, take some work.  The effort you put into any relationship always pays BIG DIVIDENDS! 

If you are resolving to grow in your relationship with the Lord may the words of King David in Psalm 51:1-17 encourage that even in the tough things in life, He never leaves you, He draws closer...

"Going through the motions doesn’t please you,
    a flawless performance is nothing to you.
I learned God-worship
    when my pride was shattered.
Heart-shattered lives ready for love
    don’t for a moment escape God’s notice."

I never cease to be amazed how God communicates with us so personally, earlier today I shared this C.S. Lewis quote on twitter

"All this trying leads up to the vital moment at which you turn to God and say, "You must do this. I can't." - C.S. Lewis

And if that were not enough... He reminded me of the words to a poem my mom always had posted in our house, as I grew up.

I hope that you realize today just how precious you are to God, how much He loves you, and that He hasn't forgotten you and NEVER will.

If you're resolving to work on your relationship with your spouse... "Big changes" can result by doing the "Little Things", according to marriage counselors. Things like:

  • Doing something kind for each other every day.
  • Make sure you laugh.
  • Share your love on places like Facebook and Twitter.
  • Be sure to express your love in things like notes or a text message.

Being reminded of the importance of not taking our relationships for granted can be great motivation to work on your relationships.  A reunited military family is a great reminder of how important our loved ones are to us.

Ice cream truck for dogs?!
Jul 23 2010

Ice cream truck for dogs?!

The world's first ice cream truck for dogs opens for business this weekend. Some of the "canine-friendly flavors" include "Dog Eat Hog World" and "Canine Cookie Crunch!" What do you think? Would you visit the ice cream truck for your dog?

Absolutely. I spoil my dog and I'm sure it's better for them than regular ice cream. Whatever I eat, I save a bite and give it to him when I'm done eating. He LOVES ice cream. His eyes get big as saucers and he looks like he's on drugs when I save him a couple bites of ice cream & let him lick the bowl, rofl. (For those saying gross: soap does clean the bowls, lol). It's probably his favorite food by the way he acts.

I totally would! We have a dog store in Shreveport Louisiana that has dog yogurt! My 2 dachshunds LOVE it! They have flavor like apple/cheddar, peanutbutter/banana, and papaya. Ofcourse they don't get it everyday but like once a week maybe. My "children" are VERY spoiled but I couldn't live without them!

Yes, most definatey. But I agree they should sell ice cream for doge at your local ice cream store. Then when you buy ice cream for yoursel then you can buy one for your "child with fur".

Just imagine a life of eating the same dog food every day, morning-noon-night, 7 days a week for xx number of years! Dogs need a variety too. Talk about a boring existance. I would go insane but they keep on loving us, like nothing is wrong.

They did a study that showed dogs eating the same food like that all the time have a higher increase for developing allergies. They really should eat HEALTHY adult food like we should (fruits, veggies, lean meats, etc) but who can really afford that? I "hope" to be able to switch over to real food for my pets within year.

What a fun idea. Another way to spend quality time with your loved pet. It's sad when we can't take a moment to ENJOY life. If money is tight, give that worry to God and enjoy the life he has given us with another life God has given us to take care of. In addition to our Children and pets, I think God allows a little fun for us adults too. Eat ice cream, run in a part, and stop to smell that beautiful rose. Those are precious gifts from God.

Until recently I would have said absolutely not but my dog suffered from an illness this spring that cost us a lot of money. Every time she ate dog food no matter the brand she got sick and I was up many nights with her. Every time the fee was $100 or more so we stopped feeding her dog food and now I get up every morning and cook her 2 eggs, a slice of toast, and a piece of fruit as well as her cheese. At dinner I fix her some chicken and rice and through in some sort of veggie to go with it. This has in fact cut the cost of dog food out though. So yeah I would probably buy her an ice cream at a truck. Although she think treats are plain ice cubes from the freezer.
