Don't worry, be happy

“That is why I tell you not to worry about everyday life—whether you have enough food and drink, or enough clothes to wear. Isn’t life more than food, and your body more than clothing? Look at the birds. They don’t plant or harvest or store food in barns, for your heavenly Father feeds them. And aren’t you far more valuable to him than they are?” Matthew 6:25-26 New Living Translation

Look at Dino. He doesn’t worry about what he is going to eat or where he is going to sleep. He just wants to play in the snow and catch snowballs, running and jumping, until he comes back up on the deck panting. He knows that we will feed him and that he can sleep on the end of my bed at night.

Sure, we have to be responsible, we need to earn an income, we need to budget our finances. But when things fall apart – and they will – it doesn’t help the situation to be down and depressed. We need to trust that God will take care of us, as he takes care of all his creatures.

Lord, thank You for all the great gifts You give us. May Your Holy Spirit assure us that You will watch over us and supply us with our ever need. Amen

Dino is pretty down now that the snow is just about gone. He will have to resort to catch tennis balls, instead of snowballs. I think that will be much easier on the teeth and the lungs. But this last one is a pretty amazing picture, don't you think? I had to take about 20 shots to get these few that turned out.
