Resting with God: Lessons from the dog

Today’s observation comes from watching Cooper and Grace (a couple of miniature schauzers that share my home):

The best place to rest is in the Master’s bed – preferably snuggled up on the pillows. It is so much like heaven to rest peacefully surrounded by her scent, in the comfort of a soft mattress and pillows. I can relax and be close. It gives me strength and energy for all the other exploits of my day. It makes me feel safe and content. My first choice of resting places is anywhere that she has been, because she leaves behind reminders of her presence.

I hope that I too can learn to rest in the Master’s bed – to be willing to be loved.
