What Day is it?

The Burning Question:

What is a life skill you’ve had to learn as an adult that you wished you were taught earlier in life?

Morning Devotional:

With my dog advancing in age, she sleeps most of her days away. Combine that with the fact that she is both blind and deaf and you would think it might be difficult for her to detect when someone is in the room, much less in my home. 

Her sense of smell works just fine, which means I have created a daily contest for myself. How long can I keep my dog from thinking I’m not home yet?

When I get home from work, my dog demands my immediate attention. She must be able to feel some vibration from the garage door because she is awake and antsy and ready to get out of her enclosure as soon as I walk in. She is begging for a meal before my purse is on the kitchen counter. She doesn’t look at me with those “happy to see you” eyes, either. It’s this vulture stare, “Where have you been” look that says she’s happy to see me but wonders why I’m not tending to her needs fast enough. At least it’s a welcome homecoming. 

There’s a very different arrival coming on the calendar, a homecoming we do not want to miss, and someone is waiting at the doorway there for us to walk through it. There will be no demands of us once we get there, only what the apostle Peter calls “a rich welcome into the eternal kingdom.” It’s the kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We don’t know when that day is coming, or how long we can go without being sure we’ll get there. The only guarantee we have is to receive Jesus as Lord. Welcome Him into your heart and life today.
