Lord, amid all the tragedies worldwide, we are thankful to hear happy stories as well. We are continually amazed by the stories from around the globe that involve four-legged friends notifying loved ones of danger. Today we rejoice in the family who escaped their burning Florida home, thanks to their neighbor’s dog. We are thankful that Amber Walker’s dog Angel alerted Walker to the flames next door. We are also thankful that Amber and her brother were able to notify their neighbors in time for them to escape. We pray for the family whose house sustained severe damage, that they will find safe shelter and will be able to focus on gratitude even while mourning the loss of their home and possessions. Help them move forward with joy. In Jesus’ name we pray, amen.
