Shiloh’s Shenanigans - And We're Off

Written From Streetsboro, Ohio

He says, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.” Psalm 46:10

I'm so happy. We're on the road again. I saw Mommy and Daddy packing and I was getting worried. Were they going to leave me behind? I'd been working so hard. Surely they noticed I wasn't barking as much. I tried not to run off when Mommy opened the door. Surely no one can expect me to not chase motor cycles and squirrels. Mommy prays every day asking for knowledge of God's will for her and the power to carry that out. I'm starting to understand what it means to be the Shepherd's Sheep Dog and I wanted them to give me a chance to do my job. When they put my leash on to take me to the camper, I leapt for joy.

Then, Mommy brought out the harness. Nooooooo. I wanted to roam the camper. I wanted to sit under Mommy's feet. I don't understand why she gets so mad when I crawl under her feet when she is driving. I've read my big sister Belle's blogs and I don't think she ever wore a harness in the car. Why did I need to be harnessed to the seat?

I don't know why I doubt Mommy but I don't think many of you can judge. I've done my job long enough to notice that you sometimes doubt your Daddy. I started noticing that I felt safer in the harness. I knew my place. My harness has enough length so I can sit on the seat, get on the floor to eat my food, and get close enough to Mommy for her to touch me. I can't get under Mommy's feet anymore but I figured something out. Fear was what was making me get under Mommy's feet. Mommy says it was dangerous so I've figured out that fear makes me do the wrong thing. With this harness on me, I knew exactly where I belonged and Mommy didn't get mad at me once. I might actually like it.

Mommy was quiet today. We drove about 4 hours. She stopped at all the rest stops and we visited creeks and walked trails. Mommy was happy and that made me happy. She listened to sermons and music praising God. I think she was preparing herself to hear and respond to God.

Maybe that harness allows me to be still enough to hear what Mommy wants me to do just like Mommy has to be still long enough to hear God. I really do want to be the Shepherd's Sheepdog. Would you pray for me?
