I am not going to lie to you all (well, the like 3 people who stumble upon this post), I have been discouraged lately. I’m not entirely sure why either. Maybe it’s the myriad of people getting engaged, having babies, buying houses, and getting promoted while I sit and apply to job after job after job, being alone and sad. Or maybe it’s the holiday season during a pandemic throwing a wrench into traditions. I’m not sure. It’s probably a combo, but either way, I am discouraged.
I read a devotional this morning saying that a Christian’s ultimate encouragement comes from what God has done (sending Jesus), is doing (being present), and will do (bring us to Heaven). This is true, and it is helpful to put my small, insignificant sadness into perspective, but I need a little extra boost today. So I’m going to create my own happiness by looking at dog pictures.
I thought I’d share these pictures with you all, because maybe you need a little bit of cuteness in your day, too.
