Mellie

We have a new addition to the family - Mellie - which is short for Melissa. She's a toy poodle mix that we adopted from a rescue. Some people think she's part Maltese. No one knows for sure.
She's about 2-years-old. She seems to act like a teenager. Bursts of activity and then lots of sleeping.
Emery and Matt especially love her. But I think she fits right in with our family. I really enjoy having a dog again as it's been a long time since I had one.

Hebrews 11:6

Isn't it amazing to think that we can PLEASE God? The one true God of the universe takes pleasure in me through my faith that seeks Him and that believes that He rewards those who seek Him.May the boys and girl seek Him always and find Him to their heart's delight.

Hebrews 11:6
And without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him.

2 Corinthians 4:17-18

The "momentary" in this verse has always encouraged me. No matter what I'm going through. No matter how sad I may feel. No matter how difficult it may seem. It is momentary. And doesn't compare with the glory of God that is waiting for me for eternity.

2 Corinthians 4:17-18
17 For momentary, light affliction is producing for us an eternal weight of glory far beyond all comparison, 18 while we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen; for the things which are seen are temporal, but the things which are not seen are eternal.
