Yesterday I posted about being a bit selfish. How I wish my "normal" was a bit like everyone else's.

Then came Bux.

As I was getting ready to leave yesterday morning, a little puppy wandered up. He would not leave me alone.

Now he has a bowl, a chew toy and has been given a name...Bux (short for Buxtehude...don't ask:)

At first I didn't want anything to do with him. We already have two Shelties, another dog would be just too much! More vet bills, more food, bathing, caring for...the list goes on. But I think the Lord had something else in mind. Not just for him, but for all of us.

You can't just shut out a life in need. We may only have Bux for a short time (if we find an owner) or he may be a permanent fixture in our already busy household.

It's funny how God works.

Sometimes it's in a huge way. A big answer to prayer, a check in the mail, a positive diagnosis....and sometimes the innocent eyes of a hungry puppy.

(Any ideas on what kind of dog he is?)
