Glitzy a Spoiled Dog’s Life

For those of you that have pets, I am sure some of you may be able to relate to having a spoiled dog. Glitzy is on the outer rim of spoiled, I love Glitzy and wouldn’t have it any other way.

Her latest antics are pretty fun and worth a story.

This will help set the stage for her latest thing knowing a little story of how she communicates with me.

One night a couple of years ago Glitzy would come to me while I was on the couch and bark at me. She had food, water, bones, and everything to make a princess dog a princess dog. She just wouldn’t stop barking at me. dog, pet, Glitzy

I got up looking around talking to her “what do you want?” When I walked by the bedroom door, she walked in and jumped on the bed. Now, I figured out what she wanted it was time to go to bed. So every night since that night around 9:00 PM she will come to me and bark because it’s time for bed.

If I obey her the barking stops, if I don’t it only gets worse!

So what is Glitzy’s new command for me you might ask???

For the last two nights, she wakes up. When she wants me to get up, she puts her front paws on me and pushes. Now she doubles that with her bossy bark.

So while trying to translate her bark into what the heck she wants. I am looking for her bone, doesn’t want that. Looking around the bed to see if I can see what she wants, I turn over and move the opposite direction of where I was laying, she, in turn, jumps over me and puts her paw to indicate covers please (she also has a command for sheets).

She decided I needed to roll over the other way so she could move to a new spot and have me so she could cuddle up next to me to go back to sleep under the covers.

OMG, spoiled! 

So now when Glitzy wants a new spot, she barks at me to move into a new position so she might be comfortable.

Patience is a Virtue, argg!

At heart I think we’re all a bit spoiled to want instant gratification, we want it now! For me, this is a struggle. When we think about the plan for our life waiting for things to unfold as they should is a struggle for most of us, to accept.

Frustration could not be more pronounced in my life today. I want everything to change right now. Imposing my will only slow down what God can do for me. Do you find yourself battling your head? I do! Just about every day, it seems to hit me the frustration of waiting.

Finding a way to quiet the old noodle is a problem that I want to change NOW. Something I can do right now that is not imposing upon the universe is changing negative parts of my life to positive outcomes. So I move this situation to prayer. Will, it honestly work faster maybe or maybe not?

patience, Jesus, Faith
What Patience Looks Like

That is the real challenge of faith. Just being able to relax and say okay God I’m with you, so let’s see where you’re taking me today. Bang! I don’t want to wait. I end up having to remember all the wonderful things that have happened to me in God’s good time.

Okay, so ego says you can do this, jump in, we got this. God will unveil to us our destiny if we choose to let him. Keeping busy helps me relax my head enough to slow down and relax, here are a few things I do:

  • Take a walk; I call it my prayer walk. Talking to God, sharing everything that I can.
  • Write as I am now. Do you have something like this you can do?
  • Do you have a home project that needs doing?
  • Work out, play with kids, do something busy.

If you keep your head busy, then the enemy can’t sneak in and muddle your brain. It’s also hard to find whether your thoughts are with God or being directed by you. Always ask in prayer for guidance. Happened to me the other day I started down the path and realized that I was going the wrong way.

Subsequently, I was able to let God know that my choice was not a good one, and moved back onto the right path. It was pretty cool to know that I can make a mistake. That God’s not going to punish me for mistakes that I might make. It’s like I’m a bowling ball that God is the bumpers that keep me going down the lane.

We all need the patience to allow the beauty of our lives to reveal itself in good time. When we force the issue that can delay our journey with unnecessary frustrations. I get it! It’s really hard for most of us. I’m certainly not suggesting you sit on your backside and do nothing but don’t force an issue. When you meditate on this, you will gain clarity.

Slow down, pray about it and do what you should every day to keep life moving. When you think about a thing enough, you in your heart know what the right thing is and what is the wrong thing. Do the right thing!
