Do Angels Always Rescue?

Facing the SanhedrinWhat do you mean, the angels don’t always rescue people?

An angel got Peter and John out of jail didn’t he?

I’m still waiting for an angel to get me out of dog jail though.

And give me treats.

So sometimes the angel doesn’t come?

How come?

Okay, I’ll listen to the story.

***

Now Stephen, a man full of God’s grace and power, did great wonders and miraculous signs among the people.

***

Maybe Stephen could get me out of dog jail.

I am listening.

***

Opposition arose, however, from members of the Synagogue of the Freedmen (as it was called) – Jews of Cyrene and Alexandria as well as provinces of Cilicia and Asia. These men began to argue with Stephen, but they could not stand up against his wisdom or the Spirit by whom he spoke.

***

Those men ought to listen to Stephen.

I’m listening.

***

Then they secretly persuaded some men to say, “We have heard Stephen speak words of blasphemy against Moses and against God.”

***

Those men are up to no good.

What do you mean, kind of like me?

***

So they stirred up the people and the elders and the teachers of the law. They seized Stephen and brought him before the Sanhedrin. They produced false witnesses, who testified, “This fellow never stops speaking against this holy place and against the law. For we have heard him say that Jesus of Nazareth will destroy this place and change the customs Moses handed down to us.”

***

Those people are afraid of Jesus, aren’t they?

I don’t know why.

If they were friends with Jesus he would give them fish.

***

All who were sitting in the Sanhedrin looked intensely at Stephen, and they saw that his face was like the face of an angel.

***

If Stephen has a face like an angel those angels will come rescue him for sure.

What do you mean, I have to wait until the next story to find out what happens to him?

I think I’m going to hang out in my dog jail.

There’s got to be an angel coming soon to rescue me from there.

Creative Message

Pee pattern in the streetCheck this out.

As I headed to my trails today I decided to do something different.

I left my message on the street so everybody could read it.

Even those people who can’t smell very well can see it.

So they can read my message too.

Well, I guess they have to know the alphabet I used.

It’s pretty clever, don’t you think?

I’m not sure what I should call it.

Dogan?

Or maybe Dogabic?

I guess I’d better figure out soon what to name it.

Otherwise people won’t know what language to study so they can read my message.

I’ll have to think about it while I go on my walk.

***

Now that I’m almost done with my walk I can’t wait to see if anyone replied to my message.

Even if I haven’t named it yet there are probably some people who can read it.

And I know all my dog friends can.

Hey wait!

What happened?

Where did it go?

Bongo looking down the road

Somebody stole my message!

Summer Do

Bongo and LucyI met a strange dog on my trails today.

She was very friendly and wanted to play.

Most dogs I know just want to check me out.

It’s hard to find one who wants to play with me before even getting a friendly sniff.

While I appreciated the play, I still had to check her out.

***

Hey, wait a minute.

This isn’t a strange dog.

I know this dog.

This is my girlfriend Lucy!

With a haircut!

It’s a good thing a girl’s smell doesn’t change when she changes her hairdo.

Taking Over

Bongo on his trail refusing to budgeThis is Gizmo.

You see, Bongo is out on his trails somewhere refusing to budge because of the thunder.

So I think it’s going to be a long time before he finally comes home.

I figured I’d better write this blog post for him so he doesn’t go a day without a post.

I’m sure he’ll thank me for it.

I’m not sure what he’s got against thunder anyway.

.

Me…?

Gizmo on Back 01

I just take it in stride.

Yeah, it’s nice and cozy here inside the house.

Gizmo on his back on the carpet

No worries about Bongo running right over me when he goes from one spot to another.

He does that, you know. He doesn’t seem to care what or who is in his way.

I’ll just take advantage of Bongo’s fear of moving along on his trail.

Gizmo on his side on the carpet

He’ll be out there for a long time.

***

Oops!

Here he comes now, and he looks mad.

Bongo with glowing eyes outside a glass door

Hey Bongo, I figured you’d be home late so I put together a blog post for you.

I hope you don’t mind.

White Fluffy Clouds

Thunder cloud build upCheck out these white fluffy clouds.

They look pretty, don’t they?

And how can such a pretty thing be anything but harmless?

Well, I’m here to tell you – looks can be deceiving.

Every year about this time, these clouds start showing up.

.

***

They even sneak up from behind the big rocks.

Thunder clouds forming behind a hill

And these clouds are up to no good.

They’re full of all kinds of mischief and devious things.

Things like thunder, and lightning.

And every one of them is out to get me.

It might not be so bad if they showed up every once in awhile.

But they hang around my trails and my house for almost three months every year.

I’ve got to figure out something.

There must be some way to get them to go away.

If anybody has any ideas please let me know.

Because I’ve just about had it with these soft looking, fluffy clouds that aren’t so soft and fluffy.

Bongo looking at thunder clouds behind Sedona red rocks

See, I told you.

Their true nature is finally coming out.

Dark and nasty looking.

That’s what they turn into when they give off their thunder.

Bongo looking at more thunder clouds behind Sedona red rocks

Oh no! There’s more over there.

I’m outta’ here!

Could somebody come get me when it’s all over?

The Rain Changes Everything

Bongo looking away from a prickly pear blossomIt rained last night.

Really hard.

For a long time.

It’s been a very long time since we had rain.

So today when I went out on my trails, everything looked different.

The first different thing I found was my girlfriend Lucy.

The rain must have brought her out, because I haven’t seen her in a very long time.

And then I saw…

Hey person, look over there.

No, not that direction.

There’s nothing for you to take pictures of that you would be interested in looking at in that direction.

***

There have been no flowers on my trails for awhile now.

It’s been nice.

.

But a late blooming prickly pear popped out after the rain and of course my person had to take a picture.

Prickly pear blossom

At least there were only two blossoms on all of my trails so I got my person moving along fairly quickly.

And then I saw it!!!

My puddle!

Bongo by his puddle

My puddle had returned!

It’s been so long since I’ve seen my puddle that I almost forgot about it.

But my person said we couldn’t stay forever – it was getting dark.

So we saw a few ho hum things on our way back from my puddle.

Clouds lit by the setting sun

And some clouds.

Boring.

Out of Jail

Peter preaching in the temple courtsWhat happened to those treats I was supposed to get after I listened to the story last week?

No, I didn’t get any treats.

Oh those?

Well, that wasn’t enough. I need more.

Now I have to listen to another story?

Oh, alright.

***

After the Sanhedrin let Peter and John go the apostles performed many miraculous signs and wonders among the people. And all the believers used to meet together in Solomon’s Colonnade. No one else dared join them, even though they were highly regarded by the people.

***

I bet if they started handing out treats people would join them.

I am listening.

***

Nevertheless, more and more men and women believed in the Lord and were added to their number. As a result, people brought the sick into the streets and laid them on beds and mats so that at least Peter’s shadow might fall on some of them as he passed by.

***

Was it hot and they needed shade?

Okay, I’ll listen.

***

Crowds gathered also from the towns around Jerusalem, bringing their sick and those tormented by evil spirits, and all of them were healed.

***

Do you think somebody could heal me?

You know what’s wrong with me.

I’m hungry.

I need treats.

***

Then the high priest and all his associates, who were members of the party of the Sadducees, were filled with jealousy.  They arrested the apostles and put them in the public jail.

***

Is that anything like my dog jail?

***

But during the night an angel of the Lord opened the doors of the jail and brought them out.

***

Hey person, if you find me outside my dog jail when you get home sometime, that’s because an angel of the Lord let me out.

Of course I’ll listen. This is getting good.

***

“Go, stand in the temple courts,” the angel said, “and tell the people the full message of this new life.”

At daybreak they entered the temple courts as they had been told, and began to teach the people.

When the high priest and his associates arrived, they called together the elders of Israel – and sent to the jail for the apostles.

***

Boy do they have a surprise coming.

I am too listening.

***

But on arriving at the jail, the officers did not find them there. So they went back and reported. We found the jail securely locked, with the guards standing at the doors; but when we opened them, we found no one inside. On hearing this report, the captain of the temple guard and the chief priests were puzzled, wondering what would come of this.

***

I think those guys are going to be in trouble.

Well, I get in trouble sometimes. Shouldn’t they?

***

Then someone came and said, “Look! The men you put in jail are standing in the temple courts teaching the people.”

***

I think that means the good guys always win.

Now where’s my treats?

Deserted in the Storm

Bongo in his dog jail on his new bedYesterday was Independence Day and I think my people got it all wrong.

They thought they could be independent of me for awhile.

And they left me.

In dog jail.

While they went gallivanting about.

And while they were gone it rained.

And it thundered.

I got really scared.

I don’t think my people cared at all.

Because they didn’t get one drop of rain on them.

And the thunder was far away from where they were.

I hope you feel sorry for me now because I don’t think my people do.

They didn’t even bring me treats.

All they have to show for themselves are these pictures.

Eat Beans Day

Bongo with a can of beansToday is Eat Beans Day.

I was so excited when I heard that.

I mean, any holiday that has to do with food is okay by me.

I got out my can of beans and was ready to go when my person had to spoil the fun.

She reminded me of the last time I celebrated Eat Beans Day.

It wasn’t even on the right day so it shouldn’t count.

But I suddenly didn’t have an appetite for beans anymore.

***

And I’d better warn you about what can happen on Eat Beans Day.

Here’s what happened to me.

***

Who Spilled the Beans?

06JAN

Beans on the CarpetHey person, look at this pretty pattern I made on the carpet. Doesn’t it look nice?

What? I’m in trouble for that? No way!

.

.

.

.

I didn’t do it person. Honest, I swear. Scratchy did it. Look, he’s standing right over there. I just saw it and thought it was pretty. You know how much he likes to go counter surfing.

Scratchy near the Beans

What do you mean, most of the beans are missing? I don’t know what happened to them. Did you check under the furniture? Maybe Scratchy ate them.

I bet he could. I bet Scratchy could eat that many beans if he really put his mind to it. Can we go for a walk now? I really feel like I need to go for a walk.

Aaaahhhhh! That feels much better. Relief!

What!? You found the missing beans? Oh no!

Busted!!!
