Tennis Balls and Jesus

Last week we transformed the Balvin home into Balvin Kennels as we cared for my brother-in-laws two dogs. One the dogs is a 3 or 4 year old Visla who was more obsessed with fetch than any dog I have ever seen. The dog would literally follow you around the house and yard with a tennis ball constantly in its mouth. Then, if you stopped for something, the dog would drop the tennis ball at your feet or side and simply stare at it, waiting for you to toss it away. The laser like focus was incredible. There was one thing, and one thing only, on the Visla's mind: "fetch."

made me consider what my life might look like if I thought about "Jesus" the way that dog thought about "fetch."
