Boon's Sunday Sermon #11 - Waiting on The Lord

Sometimes Mom goes where we dogs can't see her.  We don't like when that happens.  We always want to be right where she is.  Whether she is away from home or just in another room, we sit and wait for her to return to where we are.  We know that she loves us, and that she will be back.

Watching and waiting

Sometimes as children of God, you don't feel like you are where God is.  God promises in His Word that He will never forsake or abandon you.  He says "when we seek Him with our whole heart, we will find Him."  God longs to be with His children, but there are times that situations arise that leave you feeling helpless, hopeless, and alone - a prayer has gone unanswered or the miracle has yet to occur - but God is always near.

Sometimes His answer is to simply wait.  Be still before the LORD and wait patiently for him.  Psalm 37:7

Isaiah 40:31 says, "But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint."

Wherever you are right now, God is near.  

Be patient.  Wait.  He will deliver you.

It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the LORD.  Lamentation 3:26

Have a blessed week, friends!

  3. Hi Y'all,

    Wow, that was a great one. Thanks Boondocks. I never really understood the "God" thing the Humans insist on going to see. You're startin' to make it make sense to even me, a pawed one.

    Y'all come by now,

  4. Very True!

  6. Another thoughtful post for Sunday. We look forward to them every Sunday.

    Thanks buddy.....


  7. So true and good to know. Makes all of us feel so much better to know that there is one out there who loves and cares about us SO!

    I think God has a soft spot just for us Dogs because he taught us how to love almost like Him!

    Glad I stopped by:)

  8. Very appropriate for what I needed to hear at this time. Waiting can be difficult, especially when things are not going well, but I have Faith and know He is always here. Thanks for the lovely post!

  9. You are one smart doggie. Thanks for reminding us to be patient and wait.

  10. True True. Although I am still learning to wait for my MOM, it's hard for me to be away from her (unless I am at Doggie Day Care, it makes it easier).
    My MOM is a pastor and starting in November every 3rd Sunday is "bring your dog to worship with you!"
    Now, I get to go with her all the time during the week and now my friends can join me on the 3rd Sunday. I'm excited, MOM's excited and the congergation is excited.

  11. Waiting is so hard but we hope it will bring your mom's dream to reality.

  12. We are so thankful we've "discovered" your Sunday sermons. This one really hit home to us. Many, many thanks for ministering to us!!
    PS: Can we put your cool Sunday Sermons thing in our sidebar with a link? And add your blog to our cool pals list?s

Things to Know Before Owning a Golden Retriever:

Our oldest Golden Retriever will be six on April 1st. We got Scarlet when she was just six weeks old and quickly fell in love with her. Within another six weeks, we had our second Golden, Rhett. (Rhett passed away two years ago.) It has been five (almost six) years since we have had adolescent Golden Retrievers in our home. While I have often joked about the “first terrible two years” of a Golden Retriever’s life, I had truly forgotten just how trying a Golden puppy can be - that is until now. Cosmo will be one year old in a matter of weeks, and Rose Bud is six months old. Now all of the reasons we’d joked for so long over how hard it was to survive their puppy hood have come back to me. We’re learning again - the hard way.

With that in mind, I would like to share some tips on owning a Golden. Retriever.

Here are a few things you need to know:

1. You do not own a Golden Retriever. The more accurate description is that they own YOU.
2. Golden Retrievers will chew. If you do not provide the…


So it's been about 15 months since I blogged here.  Most days instead of in depth thoughts, I prefer to post pictures at .  It doesn't require as much brain activity.  But I chose to share this here because it was entirely too long to fit in a Facebook post.  (I do have have four kids after all.)

This was a lot of fun.  I interviewed each of my four kids separately so each answer was original and not "borrowed".  I gained some insight into my kids and learned a few things I need to work on.  And for some reason they all agree I'm obsessed with my dog.  What's up with that.

Here goes..  (Connor is 8, Isaac 12, Jaden 14, and Dacey is 16.)

MOM 1. What is something mom always says to you? Connor  – “You love me.” Isaac  – “God made you special and He and I love you very much.  Precious monkeys and all that jazz.” Jaden  – “If you keep doing that, you’re face will stick like that.” Dacey  – “Be who you are and say what you mean.  T…

Boon's Sunday Sermon #6 - Little Black Dog

Today we'd like to share a writing with you by one of our favorite authors: Elisabeth Elliot.  This piece is beautifully written and describes her thoughts on a dog's 'mortality'.  We hope it touches your heart as it has ours. 

Little Black Dog by Elisabeth Elliot
It is a late October morning of glorious sunshine in New Hampshire and I sit in an antique rocking chair by the window of an old house which was once a barn. The gray rocks on Mount Lafayette's broad summit are dusted with snow, and the sky is as blue as a sky can be. All that is still green today is the evergreens. Between them are the black line drawings of the thin leafless maples, wild cherries, aspens and birches. The feathery tamaracks are dark gold. Little yellow apples hang on one of the gnarled old trees of the orchard. I keep hoping a deer will come for them.

My friend Miriam and I drove up yesterday from Boston for a few days of quiet at my brother's place. Both of us brought a load of desk …
