The Church of Jesus Christ is rooted in the truth of the restored Gospel of Jesus Christ and God’s vision for mankind as communicated through scripture. It represents the kingdom of Jesus Christ as He established it here on earth; restored in glory for mankind with the same gifts, ordinances, structure and faith. The Church serves humbly as a gateway through which God’s spirit can be shared with the world. It is a spiritual home for people across the globe and a conduit for God’s blessings and miracles.
My blog articles are usually about how physical fitness relates to spiritual health, so I apologize for the change in topic with this post. I had been praying about what to write, and God told me to write this.
Last week, my husband and I made the very difficult decision to put down our dog, Milo. Due to circumstance, we have to wait a certain period of time before it can happen. But, by the time this post goes out, Milo will already be in doggy heaven. Physically, Milo is in good health and could have had a long life; however, he mentally has some issues, which at 85 pounds, can be very dangerous.
If you cut yourself, then you put on a Band-Aid. If your nose is running, then you use a Kleenex. If you have a headache, then you take a Tylenol. If you work in an office and you need to make copies, then you use the Xerox machine.
All of the above sound like common-sense things that we all do; however, many of us who cut ourselves may use an adhesive bandage that is not the Band-Aid brand and therefore does not have the Band-Aid name on it. Our tissue box may or may not have the Kleenex name on it. We may keep generic ibuprofen in our medicine cabinet rather than the official Tylenol brand. And, of course, there are many brands of copy machines that do not carry the Xerox name.
