The seasons are changing again and with each change Trouble (poodle) and I (Sitka/Alaskan Malamute) get a little older. Older comes faster in our furry world than it does for most humans. I suppose God allows us to have shorter and fuller lives with our humans so we can have longer lives in eternity with Him. I understand in heaven everyone gets along and there is no more pain. I love my furry life here on earth, but I must admit "no more arthritis" is sounding pretty good. And, then there is the part about "no more sorrow." I don't know about you guys, but I have trouble comprehending "eternal happiness." That puts new meaning to "Happy, Happy, Happy!" I know it all goes a lot deeper than this, but what if we looked at our earthly lives as preparation for our eternal lives? No offense, but I think we animals do a better job at this than humans. We are more content and it takes less to make us happy. Trouble and I think it's because we are content and happy just to be in the presence of those we love whether few or many. Trouble and I do like to have our breakfast and dinner on time, but we understand there is no shortage of yummy food in heaven and we don't even have to watch or waistline there. So, it sounds like our earthly issues will be taken care of on the other side.
