YOU MAY NOT WANT TO READ THIS, I’M WRITING TODAY’S DEVOTIONAL ONLY FOR MYSELF, YES, I’M BEING SELFISH.

WARNING NOT A DISNEY MOMENT

SHE WAS OLD AND GRAY

HER HIPS WERE BAD

HER EYESIGHT GONE

HER HEARING NON-EXISTENT

SHE WOULD ONLY EAT EVERY OTHER DAY

AND GROWING WEAKER EVERYDAY

100 YEARS OLD

WE WALKED OUT TO HER FAVORITE SPOT

WE SAT AT THE EDGE OF THE CLIFF AND WATCHED THE SUN GO DOWN

I PRESSED MY GUN TO HER HEAD AND PULLED THE TRIGGER.

GOODBYE MY SWEET AUDREY

YOU WERE A TRUE FRIEND, LOYAL AND COURAGEOUS.

FAREWELL MY FAITHFUL DOG.

(in the biography of Ernst Shackelford, written by his grand-daughter she quotes the sentiments of the Captain of the ship as they were starving and had to eat their sled dogs; “There are men here I would gladly more willingly shoot than these dogs.”)

I echo his sentiments.

Thank you for indulging this moment of only caring about my own feelings right now.
