I am sitting in the back porch early with my coffee and my dog Buddy beside me. And suddenly I imagine that my old doggie Wrangler, who went under my car years ago, came trotting around the back of the house to sit by us as he used to. A pang came to my heart, for I still miss him. Then the words of C.S. Lewis came to mind. what if nothing in this world fully satisfies, or truly lasts, then it must be we were made for another world. And yet this morning I am also grateful for what is present.
