Blessings and No's
Mom and Dad have been very busy lately. My human sister is getting married in September and my parents are running around trying to accomplish all the tasks involved to fulfill Lauren's dream of "the perfect wedding." Humans can be weird, sometimes. They spend too much time concerned about things that are not important.
My parents are trying desperately to keep my human sister focused on what is important. Recently, she asks for hair extensions and told Dad they would cost $2000. My Dad is very even tempered and calm, but his human feathers were ruffled upon this request. He said, NO. I will not pay for hair extensions.
I was proud of Dad for standing firm. He loves his "little human girl" with all his heart and wants to bless her with beautiful gifts. However, Dad wants Lauren to learn the value of money.
Our Heavenly Father longs to bless us with wonderful gifts, but sometimes HE says, "NO." Our feelings may be hurt at first, but later we realize HIS answer is based upon what is best for us.
Please keep Dad and Mom in your prayers as they balance the overflowing doggie bowl full of life's adventures and challenges. Thank you for faithfully following me.
