I saw a dachshund while I was on my walk/jog this morning. She had a little pink dress on, and her name was Sara.
Sara was getting particularly far from home. At first I thought she was coming to warn me off the property, but then she passed by me and kept running the other direction, into a neighboring yard. All the while her keeper was calling her, “Sara! Sara, you get back here!”
But Sara kept running. She stopped and did her business, and then took off again. By this time I started running to catch her.
Ahead of me, she ran out into the road. A car was coming. I started running up the road and waving at the traffic.
She circled back and came toward me. I was still slowing cars down as they came. I followed behind her and had her back. If anyone came, they knew instantly to slow down.
She made it back home and her keeper thanked me. It was then that I felt your sweet presence around me.
Did you help set that up, Sophie, to make me feel good today, like maybe I saved a doggie’s life?
Did I draw the doggie toward me? Would she have even come down that way if I wasn’t out and about?
I don’t know, but I felt that little smile at the corner of God’s lips, as he grinned, while soothing sounds surrounded my ears and heart.
