"Brothers and sisters: I kneel before the Father,
from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named,
that he may grant you in accord with the riches of his glory
to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in the inner self,
and that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith;
that you, rooted & grounded in love,
may have strength to comprehend with all the holy ones
what is the breadth & length & height & depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge,
so that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.

Now to him who is able to accomplish far more than all we ask or imagine, by the power at work within us,
to him be glory in the Church and in Christ Jesus
to all generations, forever and ever. Amen." - Ephesians 3
To the kind, compassionate Physical Therapy student, who took the time to come to my blog, to read, to care and to comment, Thank you. Your words gave me encouragement and solace. I take comfort in them.
To God, "who is able to accomplish far more than all we ask or imagine," Thank You.
Yesterday, I finished the draft of an article that I'm writing for City Dog Magazine. City Dog is a west-coast magazine for dog-owners, and is available in Seattle, Portland and Northern California. It's sold at Borders, Barnes & Noble and independent newsstands, and is chock-full of interesting articles, tips, dog-friendly events and places to go. I learned about City Dog from my friend & fellow-blogger, Smileygirl, who works for the magazine.
Smileygirl with her husband and their dog, Wrigley.

There is a print version, an online version, a facebook page and a blog. Check it out! I'll let you know when/if the piece appears in the magazine - as of now, it's slated for the holiday issue.
I love you, Wrigs!

Karen, yes we all have 'those' days and our ways to help us through them. Thank goodness they don't last forever because there will always be better days ahead. Can't have one without the other. I so appreciate the good days and have learned not to fear or ignore the bad ones.
Will look forward to your publication in the magazine.

I think you need to find the feline publication so you can write about that cat of yours who thinks he's an admiral.

Kay said...

I love Ephesians. : ) Looking forward to seeing your article when it comes out. Exciting stuff!

Busy Bee Suz said... are going places my friend!!!!!
Love the photo of you and Wrigs.
Can't wait to see what you have written. Should I send Cocoa and Ozzie over to give you some more inside info on dogs??? :)

Yes, send Cocoa and Ozzie - the more the merrier - and I love Boxers! =)
The article will be about therapy dogs serving in the hospital. It's been such fun - and inspiring - to research and write.

OK, well you know how I feel about this information!
I had actually begun some training with Keenan a couple of years ago, and then Erin's health took another turn and I abandoned it. It's an avenue I've begun to explore again as a result of my recent job "situation".

Oh Wrigley! What a sweet face.

Robin, that's a good idea...what fun I could have writing about BOTH Liger and Latte!
