The Blessing of a Bowser

What is a Bowser?

A Bowser is a blessing sent from above.

At just the right time, one day after the incident. 

To take our minds off of "what could have been."

A Bowser is a soft, furry, cuddly bundle of energy.

A Bowser is a playmate.

A Bowser is a friend.

A Bowser is a personal trainer.

But best of all, a Bowser is love. 

Heaven-sent love.


(The long and short of it is that we'd been searching for a dog for almost 6 weeks without any luck.  I'd found a few leads, which were quickly put aside when I heard, "I had to eject" from the other side of the phone.  But, Bowser, bless him, showed up in our backyard the very next day.  And though we returned him to the neighbors, he popped back over the next day.  We talked to the neighbors who didn't really want a dog, but had rescued him from family who were not taking good care of him.  That night, the neighbors showed up with Bowser on a leash, a 20 lb. bag of dog food, bowls, toys and hearts happy that the dog had found a good home.  We feel that God brought us this dog.  He is an answered prayer.  And we LOVE him!!!)


  1. This is such a wonderful story, and I love all the pictures! I love stories like this that are reminders that God cares about even seeming "little" details in our lives, like finding dogs...just as much as he cares about the big details of salvation and faithfulness. He is so good!

  2. (Aka Grampy)Isn't it wonderful that God knows exactly what we need and provides it just at the right instant? Bowser is a great addition to your already wonderful, loving family. He has truly found a good home.
