When a guest becomes a resident

Good Morning!

Unexpected Life Changes – yet all about LOVE

659 Chalee going for a drive, 3 Aug 2018

While our family were away we looked after their little dog Char-lee.   She is a dynamic fur ball and quite unlike any previous animal we have had in our lives.

Previous animals have always been the larger more robust country ‘working’ type animal.

It did not seem like a good match because we live in a remote rural area and this little one has always been, in her short life, a cute little house dog.

660 Running free in the forestry, 3 Aug 2018        She began to develop a liking for the open road and isolated ‘freedom’.

She adapted to us and we adapted to her.  She bonded with David and started to follow him wherever he wandered on maintenance of our own property.

Safety imperative but ‘freedom’ also became our goal for her.     Then, came the heart-breaking decision when the family came together.    What would be the best for this little dog. A couple of older folk who had more time to exercise and train her or the love of young ones and a life of pampering with no time to spend with just her.    Love surrounded her when we came together but she came ‘home’ with us.

Our little guest has now become our permanent resident and she must be a priority in our lives.    After prayer, this decision was made and in truth I KNOW, she must be a daily priority and prayerfully we begin a new phase of life and responsibility.

Life  brings amazing CHANGES.

Thank God for all the fullness and possibilities.

Blessings and Grace to you and yours.

About Faye

I m a wife, mother and grandmother. I have always enjoyed writing even from an early age. My book Beyond the Ashes has been written as a labour of love. All the characters are real to me and their story needed to be told. As a Christian my desire is to write General Fiction stories about real people but Hope and a desire for 'better' will always be part of the journey. I have had several short stories published over the years and moderate success in writing competitions. I realized as I was thinking today (30/01/15) that perhaps I should add here that I have had life experiences of many valley times but also many mountain top experiences. I can understand and be beside anyone who finds their life in tatters because I have 'been' there. Of course as I have got older as well there have been the added sorrows of losing not only older family members but also one by one finding the dearest of friends and the ones of greatest support and care also dying. On the site of rich mountains has been my certainty of the value of marriage and how grateful I am that after loss and sadness I made a happy and long-lasting marriage commitment. The one who was my best friend back then is still my best friend 45 years later. Beyond the Ashes touches upon the POWER of LOVE when folk can forget about their own personal 'feelings' and reach out in LOVE to a desperate and broken person.

    She will be fortunate indeed to be raised by you and David. She is a cutie.

    I don’t think I’m convinced she will not be pampered by her new parents. You and David are in store for a lot of loving joy.

    She is ADORABLE! God leaves us the most magical surprises in the ‘unexpected’ does He not, in pouring out His grace from need to want and want to need. Oh, sweet joy! Hugs to you for opening your heart to this unexpected surprise!
