Right to Life Month

Psalm 139:13-18

 13 For you created my inmost being;
   you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
   your works are wonderful,
   I know that full well.
15 My frame was not hidden from you
   when I was made in the secret place,
   when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.
16 Your eyes saw my unformed body;
   all the days ordained for me were written in your book
   before one of them came to be.
17 How precious to me are your thoughts,[a] God!
   How vast is the sum of them!
18 Were I to count them,
   they would outnumber the grains of sand—
   when I awake, I am still with you.

A Hotdog Love Affair

When we got Harper, we brought a couple toys to the breeder's house.  One of them was Mr. Hotdog.  We rubbed him all over her parents and brothers and sisters so that she could have their scent when she came home.  Eventually, she realized that Mr. Hotdog was ideal for biting and flinging around her head in a violent fashion.  She also eventually tore him apart.  But, her grandparents (my parents) gave her a new one for Christmas!  She loves him.  Finally, the two have been reunited.  

Harper also got a new squirrel and "demon moose" (as Leck calls it) from her grandmother.  She loves these, but neither can compare to her new Mr. Hotdog.
