A Moment with Our Creator: Isaiah 35: 1-2

The wilderness and the dry land shall be glad; The desert shall rejoice and blossom like the crocus; It shall blossom abundantly and rejoice with joy and singing . . . They shall see the glory of the Lord, the majesty of our God.

Isaiah 35: 1-2, NIV (1984)

Meet Sonny our neighbor’s sweet Labradoodle and Summer’s adoring playmate.  I have the privilege of caring for him when the need arises.  During a late afternoon walk in February, we discovered the crocuses blooming along the wood’s edge.  Their petals seemed to be reaching up to embrace the warmth of the late winter sun. They were a herald of all the beautiful flowers yet to come.

    1. Thanks Andy B! On this side of the pond, the poodle mixes have made quite a splash. There are lots of variations these days. I’ve met Cockapoos, Aussie-doodles, Golden-doodles, a Sheep-a-doodle, a Newfa-doodle, a Woodle (wheaten terrier/poodle), and my favorite the Berma-doodle. Don’t quote me on this but I believe the original Labradoodle was bred to meet the need of those who would benefit from a service dog but have a dog allergy that would prevent them from having a Labrador or German Shepherd.

  1. Beth, you are a big dog magnet! Sonny is such a handsome, fellow! I met my first Labradoodle last week at our vet—where our dog, Cooper has a time share. 😉

    I love the scripture. Your positive outlook (reflecting God’s) is both helpful and hopeful.

    Blessings to you and yours!

    1. David, Thank you for your lovely and encouraging comment. I confess I can’t resist saying hello to the dogs in my community. It helps that Adi enjoys meeting them as much as I do. We have quite a variety of breeds large and small in our small neighborhood but no Schnauzers (sorry Cooper).
