So… My recent Blog entry around Sammy generated a tremendous amount of activity. Interestingly, many of the Christians in my wide assortment of friends, brothers and sisters some how got focused on my reference to another Blog entry Dogs In Heaven.

Apparently I am not “getting it”.

Most of you know (evidently about two thousand of you read this blog) that I believe it takes more courage to conduct your life “like Christ” not knowing if you ascend, as opposed to knowing you are heaven bound simply by stating Christ is your savior. Obviously it would be easy, if not simple, if we could all be issued a burning bush (I understand it’s a tad more complicated than this – just work with me here).

There is something much bigger that drives us all. To me God is greatly evident. There has never been any doubt. However, there is a difference in terms of integrity when it comes to taking a leap of faith, and not being a hypocrite.

Isn’t the process of seeking that brings us closer to the truth? Can’t this be one reason why God gave us discernment and free will?

I have a lot of faith. But, I ask each day for a beacon (this can be a bush, friend, event, etc) and, to be a beacon.

Peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.
