Day 84 – January 23, 2011


Another Sunday means another trip to Ben’s small group in the afternoon and another opportunity for a trip with Sid. 

A few years ago I had a black lab named Chip.  You may have seen some pictures of him.  He was wonderful, the most loyal dog I’ve ever known.  When he was a year old, I went fishing with a friend.  I decided to bring the dog along for the day, thinking he would like the water.  I was amazed how easily he settled into the middle of the boat.  After four hours on the water, my friend commented about the fact that my dog hadn’t moved the entire time.

A Lab is sure-footed on the water and wants nothing more that to be with his owner in a boat.  If he can do that, it is a good day.
