Love Believes All Things...It Hopes All Things

Soooo....
We had the dog neutered. We were told he would stop marking and would not need to run away so much. Like, every time he slipped out a door. Or whenever someone unleashed him. Or whenever someone accidentally dropped the leash. Yeah...
Well, I NEVER let him out unless he is securely leashed or tethered. My husband is more optimistic. Sebastian really is a loving guy. He believes the best about people, and the dog, too.
Today, he untethered the dog- just to see what he would do. Sebastian promptly went on an unscheduled lunch hour jog. After the dog. I stood in the driveway and laughed at him. Because he believes that the dog will behave each time.

I Corinthians 13:4-7
Love suffers long and is kind; Love does not envy, love does not parade itself, is not puffed up, does not behave rudely, does not seek it's own, is not provoked, thinks no evil, does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in truth, bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

We had a runner... and it always resulted in 2 little girls standing in the driveway screaming because they were sure she was going to get hit by a car...

I love the Bible reference here :) Clearly love is not just for humans :)

I like this post. It shows your funny sense of humor so beautifully. I can just see you observing all this while trying so hard not to laugh.

Perfect scripture by the way.

My dog is naughty too if he gets out the front door. But he always comes back on his own. I keep waiting for the day when he doesn't return and I have to go bail him out of doggy jail. Ughhh..
