The Lord your God is bringing you into a good land, a land of brooks of water, of fountains and springs, flowing out in the valleys and hills, a land of wheat and barley, of vines and fig trees and pomegranates, a land of olive trees and honey, a land in which you will eat bread without scarcity, and out of whose hills you can dig copper. And you shall eat and be full, and you shall bless the Lord your God for the good land He has given you.

Deuteronomy 8:7-10

For as long as I can remember, Trixie has sat with me during my devotion. Well, from the time we moved back and placed this chair here (it has a perfect view of the lake from inside on particularly cold and wet mornings), I have sat here, as often as I felt well, and read, wrote or spoke with the Lord.

Now, that may be the first meaning of devotion, but Trixie has created her own definition. Since she came into our family in 2011, this is where you will find her every morning with me, hunkered down in my big Texas sized rattan rocker, cozied up with a pillow and book, bible or devotional. Let me tell you nothing has changed over the years. Visitors are allowed to share in our seating, but never move it.

Once, when a friend tried to move this big rocker, Trixie barked and barked. She has her place and mind set. Although, another friend, corrected me, and explained that our devotional place was holy and she didn’t want to disturb the spirit. Either way, her devotion is loyal to me and the Lord.

I can learn a lot from Trixie in my love and devotion to the Lord. Let us bless Him for all He has given us. What a great reminder Deuteronomy is! Thank you @bethmoorelpm and @trixietheservicepup for your devotion.

    I have had dogs of various breeds through the years. One trait they all have in common is their unconditional devotion. You are fortunate in your Trixie.
