What are we barking at, Mitzi? Can you tell me so I can get in on it? I love to bark, but I’d like to know why I’m barking. Tell me, huh?
Mitzi, a Shih Tzu with a strong-willed personality, was definitely the leader. Sometimes she barked at a rabbit, which posed like a statue until Baugh could see what the fuss was all about. Then he would join in announcing to the neighborhood that he saw him.
The commendable thing about Baugh is that he was just living in the moment and following Mitzi‘s lead. He didn’t have to know why. He was wired to follow her example. An excellent idea emerged from watching Baugh’s antics.
God, help me to be more like Baugh, living in the moment and unhampered by any fear of appearing clumsy. I want to follow You with childlike faith based on loving and trusting You.
That would give me greater freedom to live the abundant life promised by God.
Thank you, Heavenly Father, that I don’t have to be perfect. Help me accept that I never will be, and that’s a reality for everyone in this world. Help me die to the fear of worrying about what someone else thinks.
With a fresh dose of encouragement, I continued to think about the joy of Baugh’s life.
Father, help me appreciate my uniqueness and stir up your gift, that is within me. I know it’s Your will to work productively and to build better relationships as I live a life of grace. I know I don’t have to fear appearing clumsy.
