I couldn't sleep last night. I just couldn't quiet my mind and I kept tossing and turning. I was going through my prayer lists and God laid it on my heart to pray for Stacie's mom and her granddaughter (not Stacie's child, another sibling) who is living with her (she's a troubled teen) and I felt like God was telling me that I needed to invite them to church.
When I did sleep I kept seeing images flash in front of my eyelids. Which isn’t a typical dream format for me. One of the images was of a dog’s foot, it was broken in half. Like a cartoon.
This morning I woke up and the first text message I got was from Stacie. Her moms favorite and beloved dog fell off the bed last night and broke his foot. They rushed him to the pet hospital and come to find out he was very ill and they had to put him down. The whole family is really sad. Stacie’s mom is devastated.
I reached out to her all week with comforting messages. Then at the end of the week asked her if she would like to come to a ladies brunch with me on Saturday. She said yes and brought her granddaughter (the troubled teen). The message that day was about God’s love.
