Sneaking Up

11 Mar

You mean that mean old King Saul went after David again?

I don’t believe it. King Saul went after David with 3000 men and David only had 600 men? I sure hope David had some dogs to help him out too. My dog buddies would give King Saul what for.

What do you mean, that’s not part of the story? I think dogs should be in the story.

Okay person, I’ll try to tell the story right.

David found out where King Saul had camped and he went there and saw where Saul and Abner, the commander of the army, had lain down. Saul was inside the camp with his army around him, and he had stuck his spear in the ground near his head.

Well, David took another man named Abishai with him and they snuck up on King Saul while everyone was sleeping. I sure would have liked to sneak up on King Saul too.

I could be quiet enough. I could. What if someone woke up while David was sneaking in?

See? If the Lord put everyone in a deep sleep they wouldn’t wake up for me either.

Okay, I’ll go back to the story.

Abishai wanted to kill King Saul with his spear but David wouldn’t let him because King Saul was the Lord’s anointed. So what did David do? He took King Saul’s spear and water jug and they left.

Come on David, you’ve got to stir up more mischief than that. That would hardly count for a Monday Mischief Blog Hop.

So David did what next? He did?

David went up on a hill a ways away and yelled at King Saul and Abner and told them what he’d done.

Is that it, person? When is God going to give King Saul what for?

Really? My person says that eventually King Saul died in battle and David got to be king, but David still kept having adventures after that.

I wish I could be David’s dog. I like having adventures.

No person, I’m happy being your dog, but your adventures are mild compared to David’s. After all, I am Super Dog.

      Thanks Collies and Chuck. God must have given David all that self control because I know I would have wanted to give Saul what for. Especially when I’m being Super Dog.

    Sounds like Bongo is after some excitement. Are dogs entioned in the Bible? I can’t think of any. Poor Bongo.

      Charlie, dogs are mentioned in the Bible several times, but most of the time there’s not much good said about them. My person says in those times they did have shepherd dogs though, to help herd the sheep.

    Great story 🙂 Bongo I have been trying to be friends with Fenris, new from Sweden but my post has been in moderation for 3 days. Maybe if you told them we are OK they will be friends too 🙂

      Tylers, I’ll put in a good word for you with my new friend Fenris.

    You’ve made a point there, Bongo, I think there must be some dogs in the story too, and to see you as Superdog next to David would make the story complete 🙂

      Angels Whisper, I’ll have to get after my person to get me next to David. She says she knows how to do magic in Photoshop. I don’t know how she does it, but that would be pretty cool.

    Heeehehe…Bongo…the pic of you really look like a Super Dog!!! Love it! Well….David is too kind to finish King Saul, isn’t he? Hmmm…I’m not sure if I’d love to be a David’s dog because he is a kind of always being in danger…no…? I’m not brave enough to go through adventurs like David….*blush*

      Kevin, David always seems to be in some kind of adventure. I’d probably be too scared to go with him. He gets in lots of battles. My person says the reason David is kind to King Saul is because he honors God and King Saul is God’s anointed.

      Brown Dawgs, I think David could use a whole Super Dawg troup. Want to join?
