Boon's Sunday Sermon #34 - Light Unto My Feet

One of the biggest obstacles of having such a large family and so many dogs comes in the middle of the night -it's at that nightly 2 A.M trek to the bathroom when you are greeted by UFO's such as toys, legos, and ginormous Golden Retrievers blocking your path that get you tripped up and possibly falling flat on your hind-end.  Thankfully with today's technology the trip doesn't have to be so treacherous.  We have our handy, little cell phones in reach at all times working hard to illuminate the way in front of us, guiding our steps keeping us free from such peril.

We have another such tool available for daily use.  It too can help you find your way even down the darkest path.  And, yes, you can even download it as an app to your smart phone making it easily accessible wherever and whenever you are.  It's the Word of God.

Proverbs 119:105 tells us, "Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path."

For every step we take, there is direction in God's Word.

In Job 23:10 we are assured, "But he knows the way that I take; 
    when he has tested me, I will come forth as gold." 

And Psalm 37:23 tells us, "The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delights in his way."


Whatever you are facing today, God has an answer for.  Seek Him.  He is there.  Let His Word shine light in your life and your situation.

Have a blessed week, friends.

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…

MOM

So it's been about 15 months since I blogged here.  Most days instead of in depth thoughts, I prefer to post pictures at www.sivilsandgold.wordpress.com .  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 …
