Trust the One Who Loves You: Baxter Lesson #1

Some lessons are timeless.

In THE CALLING OF ELLA MCFARLANDwhich is set in 1905, Lily is thrust into an unfamiliar world that bears little resemblance to her former life. How she responds testifies to her character, tenacity, and bright mind. 

When Baxter, our brand new Cavapoo, showed up on our doorstep yesterday–with 2015 pedigree in paw–he was thrust into a strange new world. A bit scary. 

Unnamed faces.

Unknown voices. 

Unfamiliar scents, noises, and rules.

Downright uncomfortable.

Baxter adjusted, as I knew he would. His pedigree testifies, after all, to his character, tenacity, and bright mind. But when I look into his chocolate eyes … when he nuzzles my neck … or twirls in circles at the sight of me … do I care a speck about his bloodline? 

No, pedigrees don’t matter in this place called Home. Unconditional love has taken over. 

Life Lesson #1 from Baxter: Sometimes life is scary. Trust the One who loves you.

Some lessons are just plain timeless.

P.S. Lily Sloat agrees.

Know therefore that the Lord your God is God; he is the faithful God, keeping his covenant of love to a thousand generations of those who love him and keep his commandments. Deuteronomy 7:9
