She said she’s really concerned


Just an hour ago after stumbling with the right words to say, she said she’s really concerned.  She said it’s very serious.

With my hands on the cold, aluminum counter in the veterinarian’s patient room and looking at an x-ray on the screen, I didn’t know what to expect but not necessarily what we saw.

So this is what’s on my heart right now.  Today.  These five minutes.

And it’s just a dog.  But he is part of the family even though he’s been a handful sometimes.

So, now we’re just waiting to hear back from the vet to hear the next step.  I know there’s decisions that will have to be made. 

Lord, please make them easy.

Blogging this moment is a distraction or maybe a prayer, too.  I guess blogging is - more than not - filled with words that are pressing on the heart and mind. So if that’s true, you know what’s on mine today.   


Sweet Levi…


Today is Five Minute Friday and today’s word is SHE



  1. Oh, how awful for you! We've been right where you are with our furry family members. Praying for you.

  2. Praying for you! That's always very hard. Just went through this a couple of months ago.

  3. I'm sorry. Dogs are truly "man's best friend." Hugs and prayers to you!
