Hey, it's me! I take a lot of pictures while I am riding on a trip.
Sunday night, back in the RV. Bama was sleepy.
My dog Bama loves to annoy our puppy Gooby. The puppy can try to jump on the back of the truck or on the bed and Bama being up there already will stand in front of where the puppy is jumping, look down at him and push him down with his paw as the puppy jumps up. It's amusing.
Isn't that like life, we jump excited to make it up higher in life and something knocks us down before we reach the top.
Don't give up. Keep jumping, eventually like Gooby has learned you find a way to jump around the obstacle pushing you down and you succeed with a smile of joy at the victory you have won!
Look at Bama's face in the picture! He was so jealous.
Friday night we let our puppy Gooby inside to spend the night out of the cold. Bama who is an inside dog was extremely jealous. So much so that he retrieved a rawhide bone out of his "hiding place," that had been hiding for weeks.
Once he retrieved it he proceeded to chew on it and rub it in the puppies face that he had a bone and Gooby didn't. This wasn't fair, so I retrieved a rawhide bone for Gooby so they would both have one. While Gooby was happy chewing on his bone I noticed Bama had stopped chewing on his own bone and was now giving Gooby such awful looks. He was jealous and staring him down, his own bone now abandoned in front of him.
While watching the two of them it dawned on me that is how us as humans are sometimes. We are jealous of other people's success in life and focus on what they have that we fail to realize we have the same opportunities, time and capabilities right in front of us.
It is up to us to use them, not look at our neighbor with jealousy and spite.
I wonder what God thinks while watching us do like Bama.
