Lost Dog
by Berni Dymet

Luke 15:24 ...for this son of mine was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found!' And they began to celebrate.

The other day, the unthinkable happened in our family.  We have this gorgeous little cat.  Her name's, Dog.  And the other day she went missing. 

Now, we had some builders in the yard, and we went away for a few days.  When we came back, she was gone.  Now, you don't have to be a cat lover to realize that losing a pet is devastating.  She was so much part of our family. 

Four long days went by…..and then, then she reappeared.  I can tell you, when I laid eyes on her….I was just over the moon.  My heart wanted to explode.  Over a cat! Can you believe that?

So imagine…..imagine how God feels when we come back to Him.  Imagine what goes on in His heart……when just one, comes back? 

It's so easy to imagine that …well, He'd never want us back.  But, you know, nothing…nothing could be further from the truth.  When we turn our lives back to Him a Father's heart is fit to explode.
