Following graduation, we hit the road running. The first order of business was to take Riley, our poodle bichon and pet of 12 years, back to his country of origin (Canada) to live with LaReina’s mom and dad in Alberta. They blessed us by meeting us in Steinbach, Manitoba which was a half way meeting point.
Seeing Mom and Dad again after a year was great. Saying good-bye to Riley – not so great.
Riley jumped into the truck heading for Alberta and waited for the drivers as if it had been whispered into his heart that his travelling with us was over. I don’t know about you, but I think that dog had a God whisper that day. After all, the Master Creator made him too. His heart was calmed, and watching his reaction to the unfolding situation brought peace to ours.
Psalm 84:5 Blessed are those whose strength is in you, who have set their hearts on pilgrimage.
Thank you, Jesus, for taking the smallest details into Your hands and blessing us through them.
