“You should be known for the beauty that comes from within, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is so precious to God.”1 Peter 3:4, NLT
May is the month for celebrating mothers. Thus, Adi’s mother Lady is featured in this month’s scripture photo. Our human mothers teach us many things. It’s the same with dogs. From Lady, Adi learned to love humans, to socialize with other dogs, to go up and down stairs, and to do her business outside (yes puppy Adi arrived virtually housebroken). Adi also inherited her mother’s gentle ways and adoring eyes. Lady will be fourteen this year. Time has added silver to her fox red coat and slowed her gait, but it hasn’t diminished the beauty of love that fills this Labrador. Time doesn’t diminish the beauty and importance of mothers either.
This post is dedicated to my Mom who introduced me to Jesus as a little girl, who sacrificed so much for each of us kids, and whose unfading beauty is a gentle and quiet spirit.
