Three Dog Night is a phrase credited to an Aboriginal custom of sleeping next to a dog for body warmth. A three dog night would be so cold as to require extra canine warmth. Well, yesterday I had what I'm going to call a Two Dog Day. So gloomy I needed an extra dog for comfort. We all know dogs can do that for us. Some days, I guess, are just more trying than others. I try to accept that, and hope for a better day today.
I like the thoughts of a speaker I heard at a Women of Faith conference a few years ago. Thelma Wells shared these words:
"God, open the doors I need to go through today.
Close the ones I don't.
Put people in my path I need to see today.
Get people out of the way I don't."
She's got the right attitude!
