Like every other morning, I heard the whimper of a lonely dog at my bedroom door. One dog sleeps in my younger daughter’s room (Jack thinks it’s actually HIS bedroom!) and the other sleeps in the hallway- on guard, protecting his sleeping family. But around 5:30am, Remy will put his nose right up to the crack at the bottom of our bedroom door and whine- just loud enough to wake me up.
I got out of bed and immediately made a cup of coffee. I sat on the couch as I sipped my steaming cup of love, but that wasn’t exactly what Remy had in mind… then comes the tail wagging and the barking at my feet. I got Jack out of his room and then the two dogs romp around in the foyer. Honestly, I wanted to finish that one cup of coffee… but it wasn’t going to happen until I took care of business.
And then I caught the sunrise out of the corner of my eye- something I have missed lately! I leashed up both of my boys and took my phone outside with me. It was a nothing short of a miracle- I held both leashes in one hand and even took a picture with the other! I came inside and asked the boys the usual question as they wagged their tails and barked with excitement- “Want a treat? Want a treat?”
It’s been a while since I’ve seen a beautiful sunrise.
But you know something? I wouldn’t appreciate it nearly as much if I got to see it everyday.
As my dogs ate their treat, I realized He gave me one this morning, too!
All eyes have turned toward You, waiting in expectation;
when they are hungry, You feed them right on time.
