K9 Comfort Dog 

PAWS FOUR COMFORT

Today I was reminded of what Jesus taught in Matthew 25:35-40. After I looked it up, I realize now that it fits with what I’m about to tell you. My handler and I were strolling the halls of the Froedtert cancer center, visiting the patients. While walking by a room with the curtain mostly closed…except for a little tiny inch opening on the end, I peeked in. (Of course! That’s what I do! I look for those who might need some fur!) From inside I heard an excited voice, “There she is! She did come today!” I took that as a BIG invitation and I walked right in, my handler asking if the lady receiving treatment wanted to visit. “Yes! Please come in! I’ve been hoping to see you!” She immediately stood up amid the treatment tubes hanging from their insertion points, and came to the floor to bury her face in me, as she cried and sobbed. “I needed to see you today, Rhoda.” Through tears she explained that her Golden Retriever had just died suddenly a few days ago. She had thought of me and knew I could make her feel better. She had come to her treatment, confident in hope that I’d be there. All this time I wondered how my presence could be so helpful. After all, I just showed up. It was just little ol’ me. Then as her tears fell into my fur, grieving the loss of her precious dog friend, I got to thinking…she was thirsty, she was sick, she was hungry, she was a stranger. This is how Jesus works through our Comfort Dog mission, through me and my handler. And through you. All I have to do is be me to anyone in need. Just be there. God supplies the opportunities. I supply me! I trust Him to give me what I need in supply in any situation. It sure is great being me! Think of the possibilities! I Hope you feel the same. “For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me. “
