Hello efurone!! Long time, no bark! Moms has been so busy with her swim team, church, a new job position, and school that it's been hard to get her to type for us!! The nerve! We sat her down and had a long talk with her, so hopefully things will be much better now.
This past weekend, Moms and Dad did their annual big help at Shelbyville-Bedford County Humane Association's 7th Annual Celebration Pet Day. Moms created the event herself, but for the last 2 years, another nice lady has run the event. There were lots of vendors, other rescues, dog, cats, and other pets there! There were even visitors from Star Wars!! Moms entered me in the pet show in the "Cutest Tail" class and the "Most Handsome" class. I took 3rd place in the "Cutest Tail" class and 5th in the "Most Handsome" class. A super cool Madolorian Bounty Hunter took me into my "Most Handsome Class"! It was so cool! I met a lot of really neat dogs and people. I got to make a really cool painting at the Puppy Picaso booth too! Here are some shots of my day. My formal ribbon picture will be coming soon!

My friends, if there is to be peace, there must be forgiveness. And as we sometimes sing, "Let peace begin with me," so let us pray for forgiveness to begin with each of us and ask God's blessing on those we find difficult to forgive.
For the enemies of our nation...we pray; Lord Hear Our Prayer
For those whose politics are different from ours...we pray, Lord Hear Our Prayer
For those whose religion is different from ours...we pray, Lord Hear Our Prayer
For other Christians with whom we disagree...we pray, Lord Hear Our Prayer
For people with whom we work who make life difficult...we pray, Lord Hear Our Prayer
For friends who have disappointed us...we pray, Lord Hear Our Prayer
For family members who are making life a struggle...we pray, Lord Hear Our Prayer
We remember those who have died... Lord Hear Our Prayer
For those died with whom we did not have an opportunity to have a last word, final embrace. And today we especially remember all those who die as victims of war, terrorism or other acts of violence...we pray, Lord Hear Our Prayer
Good and gracious God, hear us and help our prayers be sincere by conforming our hearts to what we know to be right, to what we know to be the call and command of your Son, Jesus, our Lord forever and ever. Amen.
