Zephaniah 3:17 reminds us that God is musical and He rejoices and sings over you. - -
The LORD your God in the midst of you is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over you with joy; he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing.

Are dogs color blind?Something makes me wonder if they can see colors such as red.
We subscribe to Net Flix, a movie DVD rental by mail
company.We select certain movies from a
crib and once we receive and view them, we return those red envelopes by mail
and more arrive in a few days.
So many movies these days are not worth watching, and at
times we have to return them only partially viewed.Usually you can trust the old classic ones.
Because we enjoy the detective mystery programs that are
series, we order them and are treated to NO commercials.To return the movies, I usually drive about a
mile to our corner market where there is a mail box and a mail pick up around
One day I decided to take my Blue tick hound dog with me for
the ride.Old “Smokey” is too fat to
jump up in the rear area of my van, so I push all the Kleenex boxes and pillows
aside and help him enter via the side door.
He must have noticed that I was carrying those red return
envelopes as he enjoyed the ride while barking with joy all the way to the mail
box, because - - -
In a few days it was time to return by mail some more
movies.Old Smokey, saw those red
envelopes and started barking and followed me to my van.Of course, I had mercy on him and allowed him
to travel with me to the corner store and mail box.
Now I roll down the side windows and he smells the breeze
and usually barks the entire way.My side
windows are covered with his drool, but a quick hosing off takes care of that.
Each time when I arrive at the store, the manager knows that
I am there again, because my dog is giving his signal; “Hey it is me again.”
One day for the short ride, I tried to also take my Black Lab, “Luke,”
but he jumped from the back to the front and ran out my driver’s side
door.It was a task getting Luke back in
the van, but a lady helped me cut him off and he finally relented and jumped in
the rear area of the van.I didn’t want
a repeat performance of that so I vowed not to bring Luke any more. His loss.
If I am going into town and will mail the movies at the Post
Office, I must hide the envelopes in my purse and not allow old Smokey to see
them, or he will have a fit.
Well, I don’t know about other dogs seeing colors, but my
Blue dog Smokey sees RED.
