Stay

Dennis Hutchinson —  April 2, 2015

There’s nothing quite like walking in the door & having a dog there, wagging its tail, & saying “Welcome home.”  Author Dave Burchett says we should pay close attention to them – because our pups can teach us a thing or 2 about relationships.

STAY                         :25                                          Q…CARING PRESENCE.

When someone is going through a really difficult time, what you need from them is not answers, explanations, what they did wrong to put them into this position – what they need is caring presence.  So that’s what Hanna taught me, & that’s what she gave to us during Joanie’s cancer trial.  & when she had her own cancer trial, that’s what we were able to give back to her – just caring presence.

In his book “Stay”, Burchett says dogs don’t worry about the past or the future.  & in the same way, we should have no regrets about the past because it’s forgiven; no fear of the future because God is in control; & no fear of death because of Christ.
