Love transforms

Sunday, April 21

This Easter Sunday I post a story that children may enjoy.  –Sue

“Roger, what on earth do you think you’re doing? . . . 

. . . That toy belongs to Reggie, too.”







“That’s not very nice of you, Roger.”

“You’re burying something that belongs to Reggie, too.  What if he wants to play with it?  He won’t be able to find it if you bury it.”

“Are you listening to me, Roger?”

“Not only that, you’re digging in the flower bed.  You KNOW digging in the flower bed is not allowed. . . well, except for me . . . .”

I suppose it’s hard to know it’s a flower bed when there aren’t any flowers in it.

“Uh-oh.  Here comes Reggie.  He doesn’t look pleased.”

“Aw, that’s better, Roger.  You’re a good boy to share.”

“Reggie loves you and you love Reggie.”

The thing about Roger . . .

You see, he used to be a street dog.  He didn’t have a home.  He had to look out for himself because no one else was doing it.  If he found something good, he either ate it on the spot or buried it so no one else could get it.

He had no one caring for him.  He was on his own.

No regular meals.  No warm bed.  No toys.  No friends.

Not one friend in the whole wide world!

Roger was sad and lonely . . .

Until a little dog with brown spots came along!

The sad dog became happy Roger!

Roger’s new life changes him.  He loves his home, his family, his food, his warm bed, and his toys.  He wants to be a good dog.

Once in a while Roger falls into his old ways.  That’s okay.  We don’t expect him to be perfect.

Who among us is?

“We love you, Roger, and we always will!”

“And that’s a forever promise!”
