  • Become one with God through Bible reading

    When I was growing up, church offering envelopes had check-off boxes.  One of them was “Daily Bible Reading.”  My generation was encouraged to do it all: check all the boxes, and score 100 percent for the week.

    We have a weimaraner and labrador mixed dog her name is Tilly and a beagle mixed with what we think is a blue healer named Henry. Henry looks very much like Snoopy and makes similar sounds as the Peanuts character with a custom for snorting when you directly ask him questions.

    These two beasts are mentally superior and I have a lot to learn from them.
