A long time ago

at a CME event we were asked to produce an image that conveyed how we saw ourselves as preachers. Though others came up with rather lovely images of a lens reflecting the light of Christ, or something that existed to connect God and his world, I found that the only picture that had any reality for me was of a dog crashing through the bracken, intent on indulging in a thrilling exploration...but losing the trail, heading off in the wrong direction, having to return to square one..Always, with wagging tail, huge enthusiasm and an overwhelming desire to please.
Close friends will be familiar with my references to my "inner golden retriever" - who sometimes gets all too enthusiastic, bounding up to people without reserve, and probably slobbering all over them too- so it was absolutely no surprise that when, following Rach's lead, I tried the latest quiz, this was my result. The last sentence in particular sung loud and clear for me!

You Would Be a Pet Dog

You're friendly, loyal, and an all around good sport.
People love to be near you.
You are very open with your feelings,
and you're quite vocal in expressing them.
You are sincere and kind.
You love many people -
without any sort of agenda.

Why you would make a great pet:
You're content to chill out with your friends

Why you would make a bad pet:
You always find yourself getting into trouble

What you would love about being a dog:
Running around and playing

What you would hate about being a dog:
Being left home alone
while everyone else is out having fun
