Early one morn’ when a tiny pup,
My Mama wept out of control.
With teary eyes she cried, and said,
“Today you’re being sold.”
Still whimpering, she promised,
“You’ll have a ‘great life’ little boy.
Very soon you’ll forget about us,
And be someone’s pride and joy.”
She said, “You’re off to a ‘forever home,’
‘Cause that’s what fur babies do.
That’s Mother Nature’s plan for pups,
You’ll be loved and cared for too.”
But I was only six weeks old,
Way too young to be on my own.
I needed my Mama and litter mates.
I trembled, cried, and moaned.
Those new people were never home.
If they loved me, it didn’t show.
Alone in a cage, I cried all day,
And the hours crept by so slow.
Within a few days we took a trip,
I was dumped where homeless dogs stay.
As I searched their eyes for answers,
They just turned and walked away.
I had been good, even though afraid,
And wondered, “what did I do wrong?”
A baby schnauzer needs lots of love,
And to feel they really belong.
Three whole weeks I bounced around,
As confused as a pup could be.
It wasn’t like Mama promised at all,
A “great life” wasn’t meant for me.
Every day I woke up scared,
Would I move again today?
Why couldn’t anyone love me?
They just kept throwing me away.
Finally two more people arrived,
I sensed only warmth this time.
They scooped me up and kissed me,
And said, “now your life will be divine.”
They took me to a wonderful home,
With another doggy and tons of toys.
They say I’m called a rescue dog,
But mainly I’m a much-loved boy.
At last my “great life” has begun,
And no more will my heart ache.
We snuggle close in bed at night,
And I get kisses when I wake.
My heart smiles in my “forever home,”
And love sparkles in my people’s eyes.
I’m only touched with gentle hands,
And baby Hank never, ever cries.

LET’S TAKE A MOMENT TO REMEMBER THE LORD JESUS DURING THIS TIME OF PASSOVER. REMEMBER WHEN THE DEATH ANGEL PASSED OVER THE PEOPLE’S HOMES IN THE OLD TESTAMENT? WHY? BECAUSE BLOOD FROM A LAMB (PER GOD’S INSTRUCTION) WAS PLACED ABOVE THE DOOR POST. AND THE DEATH ANGEL PASSED OVER THAT HOUSE WHOM HAD THE BLOOD. AND LIKE TODAY, THOSE OF US UNDER THE BLOOD OF JESUS, HE IS OUR SACRIFICE, OUR PROTECTION, OUR LIFE PRESERVED, OUR PASSOVER- REMEMBER IT’S NOT A PAGAN EASTER, BUT A RISEN LORD; OUR PASSOVER. PRAISE GOD! 🙂 🙂
Mt 26:2 “Ye know that after two days is the feast of the passover, and the Son of man is betrayed to be crucified.”
Lk 22:15 “And he said unto them, With desire I have desired to eat this passover with you before I suffer: …”
1 Cor 5:7 “Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us: …”
Eph 2:16 “And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby: …”
12 “Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:
13 (For until the law sin was in the world: but sin is not imputed when there is no law.
14 Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not sinned after the similitude of Adam’s transgression, who is the figure of him that was to come.
15 But not as the offence, so also is the free gift. For if through the offence of one many be dead, much more the grace of God, and the gift by grace, which is by one man, Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto many.
16 And not as it was by one that sinned, so is the gift: for the judgment was by one to condemnation, but the free gift is of many offences unto justification.
17 For if by one man’s offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.)
18 Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life.
19 For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.
20 Moreover the law entered, that the offence might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound:
21 That as sin hath reigned unto death, even so might grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord.”
AND “WHENEVER” YOU DRINK WINE , REMEMBER THE LORD WHEN YOU DRINK !
1 Cor 11:25 “After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me. ”
1 Cor 11:26 “For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew the Lord’s death till he come.”
