As the name of my blog indicates, I spend a lot of time thinking about home. Of course, my Heavenly Home is the one that is eternal, so that’s where I need to lay up my treasures, and that’s the one I’m striving for. But in the meantime, I have been given this tiny piece of the here-and-now—this home on the edge of town, this family, this neighborhood—in which to serve Him. And, though this is in the earthly realm, I want the things that happen here to be investments in the Heavenly realm.

A Matter of Perspective

When I came to pick up Bekah after her piano lesson last week, there was the sweetest dog in the car next to us in the parking lot. Kati and I admired him as he wagged his tail and gave us doggie smiles.

I went inside to get Bekah, and as we walked out, one of the store employees walked out just ahead of us. He was walking toward the doggie's car...and he was looking and smiling.
Me (as one dog lover to another): Isn't it cute?
Music store guy: Yes, I had one like it when I was in high school.
Me: Awwww...
Music store guy: It was olive green.

Olive green?!!!

Turns out he was admiring the little sports car the dog was riding in!


  1. Too funny! I'm sure Maddie would have known exactly what (who) you were talking about. :-)

  2. How funny, Cheryl! I can imagine myself in this same situation, as I would have been admiring the dog and not the olive green car. Indeed, a lesson that not everyone has the same eyes .....

    Thanks for giving me a smile this morning.

  3. Oh Cheryl, I so enjoyed this funny story, just made me laugh so much.
    I needed this tonight.
