Why I think being a Christian is the best thing ever....

I became a Christian when I was 15 years old; I was baptized at a tiny little church in Funston, GA. I remember reading scripture after that day, thinking "Wow, Jesus is talking about ME!". My spiritual life since then has been a series of mountain tops and valleys. Sometimes I feel really in tune with God; other times, He seems as foreign to me as someone I read about in People magazine--interesting but no one I really know.

However, no matter how I feel, I KNOW that knowing Christ and following after Him is the best thing ever and like Peter said..."To who would we turn? Where would we go?" There are no other alternatives left for me. There is simply no one like Jesus.

One week ago today, Joey calls me on the phone as I am driving home from work. "Hey, I'm over here at GA Northwestern, and Heidi still has one female puppy left. What do you think?" Well, to make a long story short, we have enlarged our family by one more dog....Sadie.

Sadie is a mini dachshund, dapple gray with tan feet and face. Adorable is not a good enough word to describe her. She has seriously the world's cutest face! We have fallen for a 4 pound bundle of energy and I am so happy to have her be a member of our family. Potty training has proven to be a challenge for us, but it seems to be getting better.

I find myself thinking about her, worrying over her as one might worry over a child. I never knew I could get so attached!

We love our Sadie and I'm so thankful that the Lord put her with us!
