Casting out fear with puppy love

Lessons learned from a month with four puppies

OCCASIONALLY MY HUSBAND and I volunteer for the local humane society by providing foster care for puppies too young for adoption. On one such occasion the shelter called about eight four-week-old puppies that had been abandoned by their owners, and we agreed to care for four.

It is my practice to pray for the well-being of whatever puppies we've been asked to care for even before I go to the shelter to pick them up. I affirm that not one aspect of God's creation is or ever has been abandoned by Him. I love this verse from Luke: "Are not five sparrows sold for two farthings, and not one of them is forgotten before God?" (Luke 12:6). I always acknowledge that God is the true Parent and caregiver to each one of His ideas.
