AM I READY for 2020 to end?


Dog #1:
you look kind of concerned – what’s bothering you?
Dog #2:
well, my human has been saying over and over again that it is time for 2020 to end
Dog #1:
why would that bother you?
Dog #2:
they always have these sticks that scare me with really loud noises and bright lights – it takes me a week to be able to sleep again
Dog #1:
yeah, that’s rough – but, other than that, my human has spent so much time complaining about stuff that I don’t get the attention I need every day, so maybe the end of 2020 will be good for me
Dog #2:
maybe – but then what will your human do to keep busy? It might be worse for you.
Dog #1:
I don’t know, but it would be nice if they would play outside in the yard more – then I would be excited to see them come back inside. Now, it’s just ho, hum because they are always inside . . . and, they used to fuss about wanting more time together at home, but now they fuss about being stuck at home and being together instead of learning how to get along. Go figure! We dogs do better than they do! Hmmmm . . . maybe we are smarter?
Dog #2:
Yeah. Remember when the dog next door was barking so much and we finally found out it was because he was scared and we let him know we were here, too, and he stopped all that noise?
Dog #1:
Yep! Too bad it seems our humans can’t learn to get along with each other, be thankful for what they have, and take care of each other. You know, share a bone with a hungry friend.
Dog #2:
Really sad, but they don’t seem to get it, do they? Do you really think ending 2020 will make a difference?
Dog #1:
I don’t know . . . I just don’t know. Maybe we can show them how to make things better together!
DOGS, generally speaking:
• unconditional love
• loyalty
• few basic needs
• no hidden agenda

About Jeanne

a work in progress . . . God's grace has brought me through many traumas of varying intensities and I am alive today (both physically & spiritually) because of Him and His work: "For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus"-Philippians 1:6. My childhood was spent living in many places in the United States due to my family's music or ministry—The Hicks Family, made up of Olan & Barbara Hicks, my younger brothers, Clint & Chuck & me, sang in different combos (put out an album), does so no longer professionally . . . but, visit a family gathering in Searcy & you're bound to hear some foot-tapping sounds (or catch my dad & mom on the road)! I believe that every moment of each life path (the good & what I perceive as the bad) God works together for my good as His child whether I understand it or not. MUSIC and MINISTRY are still primary aspects of the path God has me walking—so exciting! Words that have encouraged me since 1980: ". . . giving them a garland instead of ashes,The oil of gladness instead of mourning,The mantle of praise instead of a spirit of fainting So they will be called oaks of righteousness,The planting of the LORD, that He may be glorified." Isaiah 61:3
