Ten Minutes: Grace in the Waiting

For months I have been thinking on something.  Patiently praying and living while I wait.  Trusting in God that he has a plan.  That he is going to let me know exactly when and how it is meant to happen.

Another another note, sometime around Thanksgiving I started seriously thinking about getting a second dog.  We have an almost 6 year old Great Dane.  I looked and looked in the weeks approaching Christmas and didn’t see anything that really called out to me.  So, I dropped it for quite awhile.

Then last weekend while I was on the couch with my oldest stepson and my husband, I brought it up to the both of them.  This is what happened just 6 days later…


We rescued a beautiful Blue Pit that is just 6 weeks old.  I have wanted to make a loving home for a pit bull for years.  I hate how people treat them and more than that, I hate how they are perceived.  My husband said that we couldn’t get an older pit.  With 6 kids that wouldn’t be very responsible of us, not knowing the background and history with this aggressive breed.

My wonderful husband does believe in Nurture over Nature though and said if we could find a Pit pup, then we could have one.  Well, out of nowhere on Thursday night he just kept talking about puppies, even filled out an application for adoption at the local humane society.  Then yesterday while at work Paul was talking to some co-workers and found out that one co-worker had a couple of pups left from a litter that she wasn’t able to continue caring for, they would have ended up in the pound. It was a sign.  He sent me pics and answered all of my questions.  Then we went and got her last night, just like that.

I have this beautiful little 6 week old blue pit puppy, we named her Sky.  It is a sign.  A sign in my waiting, I know that it is.  I even told my husband, Sky is even more of a reason for XYZ (said thing that I am waiting and praying on).

Anyway, Happy St. Patty’s Day all.  I hope that everyone has a wonderful day ❤  God Bless and Be Safe.
