Words Matter

 We are trying to read "New Morning Mercies," around our dinner table on the nights when we are home. 

Millie began carrying on and perfectly illustrated tonight's devo for us. She was busily barking at herself. 

Even the dogs talk to themselves

"Every day you preach to yourself some kind of gospel - a false "I can't do this" gospel or the true "I have all I need in Christ" gospel....No one is more influential in your life than you are because no one talks to you more than you do....(we) are in an endless conversation with ourselves....We either preach to ourselves a gospel of aloneness, poverty and inability or the true gospel of God's presence, power and constant provision. 

For further study we were directed to Ps. 42. I love the quick, profound thoughts in this devo. On the busy days we read the original "tweet" and on days when we can we read the devo and linger around the table in conversation. 

On a side note - since this photo was taken Stacia held Millie down and I trimmed her face enough for her to now have eyes.
