Why do small children, more often than not, do the exact opposite from what they are told to do? I know the answer of course, but human nature never ceases to amaze me.
Have some little annoyances to share? Lave a comment below or email me on the "contact me" sidebar link. I'll include some of them in a new post sometime.

I greatly enjoy teaching English 7 - 12 at Sycamore, and I want to feature it today.
If you are thinking of involving your child in a cutting edge education, I invite you to peruse Sycamore's website.

MDH: My dear Shadow, known as Sarge in your books, we are so glad you are able to join us today for this informal chat. We know you stay busy with your family, friends, and promotional activities. What have you been up to lately?
SHADOW: Thank you for the honor. Besides personal appearances, I do whatever I can to promote "my" book. Seems that a lot of dog lovers out there haven't yet heard of I AM SARGE.
MDH: Well, then . . . here's your golden opportunity. What would you like to say to your audience of humans--those who already know you as well as prospective new readers?

Gently, she said, "Honey, the sun was shining all along--it always is, even when we can't see it."
As I grew older, I recalled that experience, realizing that it had deep spiritual parallels: in this life, the thunderclouds of doubt and circumstance often blot out the sunshine (God's love and care), but it is always there, even when we cannot "see" it. We have to get beyond those barracades in order to experience God's unfailing love and care.
If you are going through a difficult time right now, I sincerely hope you realize that God's love is there for you. How do you claim it? Become His child in order to experience His abundant love and grace: "For whosoever calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved" (Romans 10:9).
Does that mean your difficulties in this life will be over? Not at all--but He will guide and direct you, watching over you all the while. Everything that happens down here has a reason behind it. God is in control and knows the beginning and ending of every circumstance in my life--and in yours as well.
"If He takes you to it, He will take you through it." Trust Him--when you cannot see His hand, trust His heart.
