Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

unblemished souls...

"No matter how close we are to another person,
few human relationships are as free from
strife, disagreement, and frustration
as is the relationship you have with a good dog.
Few human beings give of themselves
to another as a dog gives of itself.
I also suspect that we cherish dogs
because their unblemished souls make us wish
- consciously or unconsciously -
that we were as innocent as they are,
and make us yearn for a place
where innocence is universal and where
the meanness, the betrayals,
and the cruelties of this world are unknown.”

- Dean Koontz
