Meee knows, Meee has a LOT of explaining to do for MIA... between being gone for Thanksgiving visiting Florida and now getting ready for Christmas and not to mention having to raise (play with) Aida, Ooooh!!! My head is spinning...
Soooo to redeem myself, Meee thought you would all like to read this Sunday's message from the Yorkie Brigade Chapel where Meee has the honor of being the Assistant Pastor :o)
Greetings, Greetings, Geeeeetings Everyone!

May the good Lord shower you with great health and lots of happiness. Meee would not be standing up here today if not for you. May you forever be blessed for everything you do!
~ The Puppy bell choir just finished singing the Happy Birthday song ~
Today we have my Sis, Princess Aida as the keynote speaker. She prepared her message all by herself so her family is very proud :o)
Please, put your paws together in welcoming her to the podium...
~ Congregation clapping enthusiastically ~
~ Aida sprints to the podium wearing a beautiful Christmas dress with matching topknot and she takes the microphone ~
Thank you all for having me here today and I would also like to wish Mama Corrine a Happy Birthday and second what Neeko said about her :o)
See, before I came to live with my furever family my life was very uncertain but a little voice inside, kept telling me that everything is going to be alright if I just keep believing.
Everybody would agree that at times, this feels like an impossible task but I believe that God puts us on this earth to be extraordinary and gives us the power needed for that. So when the going gets though keep the faith and keep believing that God has us in the palm of His hand.
Footprints In The Sand
One night a man had a dream. He dreamed he was walking along the beach with the LORD.
Across the sky flashed scenes from his life.
For each scene he noticed two sets of footprints in the sand: one belonging to him, and the other to the LORD.
When the last scene of his life flashed before him, he looked back at the footprints in the sand.
He noticed that many times along the path of his life there was only one set of footprints.
He also noticed that it happened at the very lowest and saddest times in his life.
This really bothered him and he questioned the LORD about it:
"LORD, you said that once I decided to follow you, you'd walk with me all the way.
But I have noticed that during the most troublesome times in my life, there is only one set of footprints. I don't understand why when I needed you most you would leave me."
The LORD replied:
"My son, my precious child, I love you and I would never leave you.
During your times of trial and suffering, when you see only one set of footprints, it was then that I carried you."
So believe in yourself, have faith in your abilities and know that God always carries you no matter what!
Like Walt Disney said: "When you believe in a thing, believe in it all the way, implicitly and unquestionable."
Thank you again and have a Blessed Christmas and a Happy New Year!

The Puppy bell choir is singing the Christmas carols. Neeko takes the microphone ~
Dear Lord, we now bow our heads followed by a moment of silence for the ones You called Home in the past few weeks. We ask You to hold in Your loving arms their loved ones who are grieving...
~ Moment of Silence ~
Please, let us give a standing ovation for the outstanding job the puppies from the Puppy bell choir did today.
Their Christmas music sure filled our hearts with Joy and put us all in the Christmas spirit.
Well done! You all deserve an extra treat for your great efforts.
The goodies table is filled with pawsome deserts provided by Kung Fu Kori aka The Toyminator and her precious sister, Sweet Ashley aka The Ash Bug.
Hope to see you all back next Sunday for the pawsome Celebration of the Birth of our dear Lord, Baby Jesus :o)
Love and Blessings to all,
Assistant Pastor of Yorkie Brigade Chapel
