alive

3.04.2010

Today was one of those days.

Not one of those days, but one of those days that make you incredibly thankful that you're alive. It got up to 60 degrees (woohoo!!!), the birds were chirping, the sun was out, everything smelled like spring. It was amazing.

I went on a walk with Sarge. He's a rather...interesting dog. He's not exactly dumb, but he has some quirky habits.
Like biting his leash.


He will just grab hold of it with his mouth and not let go. When that happened today, I tried to pull it out of his mouth...



...a game of tug of war broke out. Not that I really wanted to play it.

Finally he let go and walked normally. For most of the time.

But in the time he did walk normally, it gave me a chance to take some pictures.


As I was taking pictures, I realized that there are so many beautiful things that we see everyday but don't really notice.

From something as simple as kids playing hopscotch...


(I love those little feet)



...to an amazingly blue sky...


...to a quirky dog.

Makes me feel so thankful that I'm alive.

  2. I love your blog! Oh, how amazing God's creation is! =D *big smile*
    Is Sarge a lab? Our dog, Buddy, is a black lab. Sometime's he likes to take the leash in his mouth and walk/ run with it in his mouth! ;) Oh, I love that dog. Personally, I wouldn't call taking the leash in his mouth dumb or silly or anything, I'd say Sarge just wants to have some fun! Heehee.
    I, as well, am a PK! I love it too! Have long has your dad been a pastor? My dad's been a pastor for... Uh, I don't know how long... I know he was before I was born, and I'm twelve. So more than twelve years! (Technically, 13 years, I'll be 13 in just a few months =)

    Giving God the Glory!

    P.S. Just out of curioustity, how old are you? (If you don't want to tell, that's okay too! I understand if you aren't allowed to give your age out(or if you just don't want to).)

  3. Hey Abigail! Thanks for your comment! :)

    In regard to your questions - Sarge is a black lab, with a touch of border collie. He's a great dog :)

    My dad has been a pastor since August, so I'm a pretty new PK! I'm still getting used to it...


    And I'm 13...
