Ok, so I totally paraphrased that but you know what I mean.
Anyways, what's interesting is that after this verse is the golden rule...Do unto others just as you would have them do unto you.
Interesting how those two go hand in hand sorta...God is pretty cool like that.
So, a few weeks ago this verse came into my head. I was praying and I just had the feeling. You know the one where you know you have to do something and it's something that you really don't want to do necessarily but nonetheless it's like your good sense just is nowhere to be found!
And so I said, well I will just take a look and see what's out there. And sure enough...it became one of those now or never situations that was more now than anything else.
The decision was made. I had caved. I had given in to the prayers and the wishing and hoping.
I couldn't give him a stone. And we definitely weren't getting a snake!
And I fought it, but the Lord was sweet when He said, as much as you want to give this to him, I want to do the same for you even more.
So, we did it!

"Dear Lord, Thank you for my sweet boy and his precious little pup. Oh how he has prayed and prayed for him and saved and saved! He has been patient and so eager and I love that everyday even after a few weeks he still tells me, "Mom I can't believe I finally got my dog!" My heart bursts with sweet Joy. Lord let them be pals for a very long time. Let this little dog be a faithful friend and let his years be long :) Thank you for teaching me how wonderful it is to give your children such great gifts...You are so good Lord. In your precious name, Amen."
