    OK.

    Good night.
    See you around.
    Post a picture of you kitty cats. Would love to see them

    I'm not a cat person myself, more of dog person.

    Got a border terrier and a bichone frise.

    There are so many wonderful Scriptures that speak about the love of God
    for us, and in fact, some people call the Bible God's love letter to us.

    He loved us so much, He took on flesh to walk this world and give
    His life as a ransom for many... even while we were yet sinners!

    We are chosen to shame the wise, the weak to shame the strong

    For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight.
    Eph 1:4

    We are chosen to be holy and blameless.

    He chose to give us birth through the word of truth, that we might be a kind of firstfruits of all he created.
    James 1:18

    We are the firstfruits, His success in the world of men.

    Some people lost options to post images, and I have no idea why What type of device do you use? When I want to post an image, I am allowed two options: select from my computer, or enter the url of an image hosted online. If you cannot post images directly from your device, you could upload them to a host site, and then take the direct image link to post the image here. I think I may have suggested this to you before and you said it was too much work? But once you do it once, you can save either a link to the image or the link to the post where the image is, and then when or if you want to post it again, you can call out the url that way, or just copy the image once it is hosted here

    Toffee is very close to the name I would have suggested for my daughter's baby,
    the mini red tri Aussie Shepherd, but I did not think of it soon enough (Taffee)

    Mine don't. We thought we were buying a pure bred. Saw the papers for the mother, but not the father.

    I reckon the father was a staffie,

    Mind you as we went to look at her with 4 kids in tow I did say to my wife. 'You do realise the first puppy we see is the one that's coming home with us.

    Toffee is now 13 and she is affectionately called pig dog.
    She snorts like a pig and snores like one.

    For me me I find this difficult. Not because it's not true but because why?
    I know myself and yet despite that God knew I would respond and he called me inspire of myself.

    So I have always tried to walk in God knew I would come to Jesus.

    Therefore I have no idea who God will respond to his call and I should not judge that seem to be beyond the call of God.

    In a sense and nit boasting here it makes me humble.

    "Oh how could it be that God would welcome me into his family"

    He accepted me. We should never forget the person who seems beyond hope are in the same position we were.
