Your post reminded me of something I noted from a 700 Club interview years ago.

“All the bad stuff doesn’t have to go away, for you to be blessed right now. Feel good now.” Tonya Pinkins 2006

****************************************************

I had some bad news Friday. Our doberman Bailey who is 6, was diagnosed with heart failure on Friday. He had a cough on Thursday and we took him to the vet Friday morning. They said he had a bad heart rhythm, took an Xray and saw an enlarged heart and fluid in the lungs.

They sent me and Bailey to the UW Veternary School (Madison,WI) to see an animal cardiologist. The nice doctors at the UW confirmed the diagnosis with many tests. Bailey is now on 4 heart related medications (plus the thyroid med he already had).

After only 3 days on the meds, he is rather spunky. I have noticed he trots more than walks on our walks. He has more energy than usual.

This enlarged heart was probably happening slowly for a long time. We had no clue at all. The coughing was the thing that got our attention.

He had a lot of fluid in the lungs. A shot of something (lasixs?) cleared that fast. He is on a pill form now and forever. The other drugs are for the rest of his life as well, unless some are doing no good. He has a check up Friday Nov 6, one week after the meds started. They might reduce the doses or remove one medication if it is doing no good.

The doctor guessed he as about a year to live, but of course no one can know. I think his will is strong and he certainly is visibly better after only 3 days on the meds.

It is better to know he has this and help him, than to have remained unaware of his problem. The doctor said this heart trouble is not uncommon in dobermans.

We have a second doberman who is 3 called Bart. He is very spunky and acts like a puppy.

The husband was taking the news very hard on Friday night and Saturday. We both were a bit weepy yesterday. Seeing how Bailey was so lively on our walk today made me feel better. He feels so much better.

How ever long we have him, he’s been a gift. We adopted him when he was 18 months old from a doberman rescue. His “parents” got a divorce and couldn’t keep him. We adopted him and he’s been a joy to have around the last 5 years.

We didn’t see this coming. But that is how life is. Our first doberman lived to be 14.5 years old. Our second was stricken with bone cancer at 7. Now Bailey has advanced heart failure at 6. Bart is healthy as my horses.

***************************************************
For all who have prayed for my Auntie Mickey,,,she is feeling very well lately. The anti-depressants have worked wonders and she is finally feeling well and sleeping again. She still has not seen the endocrinologist who will help her with the thyroid problem. She is seeing that doctor December 21st. Until then, she’s hanging on, and not doing bad at all. The nerve she hurt over the summer has healed. Many thanks for everyone’s care and prayers for her! TCP

Prisoners Of Sin
The Scripture has confined all under sin, that the promise by faith in Jesus Christ might be given to those who believe. —Galatians 3:22

A 2008 report from the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime said, “At any given time there are more than 10 million people imprisoned worldwide.” Since some prisoners are being released while new ones are being sentenced every day, there are more than 30 million total prisoners worldwide each year. Statistics like these have caused many people to work for prison reform and a reexamination of sentencing laws.

From a spiritual perspective, the Bible offers an even more staggering statistic: “The Scripture declares that the whole world is a prisoner of sin” (Gal. 3:22 niv). In what is sometimes considered a difficult passage to understand, Paul says that although the Old Testament law could not impart life (v.21), it was an effective teacher in showing us that we need a Savior who can give life (v.24). The bad news is that “the Scripture has confined all under sin,” and the good news is “that the promise by faith in Jesus Christ might be given to those who believe” (v.22).

When we give our lives to Christ, who has fulfilled the requirements of the law, we are no longer imprisoned by sin. Instead, we enter a fellowship of people from every nationality and social status.

In Christ, we are free indeed!

The law reveals the mind of God,
The prophets too made clear His will;
But Christ alone brings life and peace,
His words our deepest needs fulfill. —D. De Haan

Deliverance from sin is the greatest of all freedoms.


Bible in One Year: Jeremiah 27-29; Titus 3
