My love affair with cavvies

Meet my dog “Frenchie,” my cavalier king charles spaniel. She was the runt of the litter, she is timid, shy and a little reserved. Well haven’t things changed!!!! She’s 13 years old and thinks she’s the head of the family. At first, we took her to puppy school, she failed her first class. We tried again and the second time she passed and won a certificate for being the smallest and cutest. I believe I’m her puppy.  She is so loved in this household.
She has brought out another side of me that I never thought I had. God does have a real good sense of humour and this is how He rewards me. A real joy and I’m so grateful !!! She’s like my child.  She’s a little Miss Prissie, she hates walking on grass because it wets her paws. She will not under any circumstance, drink or toilet in public, so then she bolts when she gets home. She’s not interested in other dogs, they are a distraction from her master’s attention or doting daughters!

The smell of steak sends her on a high. Food is her first love.

When I’m not home, she sneaks on the couch and sits on my french cushions.

 Time out when she’s naughty. She plays innocent when she wants something.
She loves all classical music, gregorian chants are her favourite, if I play something more upbeat she barks until I change it.

It’s easy to wallow in self pity and feel sorry for yourself, but that’s like a cancer, it just grows and with it comes more misery and self pity. It really never gets you anywhere.The enemy will put fear into you because he is the master of deception. Fear is often unfounded and often we exaggerate it because we predict into the future.  We all live in the world but we don’t have to be part of that. Fear does not come from God, it is put into our hearts by the enemy. Instead, we can surrender to God and allow Him to solve our problems because He has the big picture and He has the best solution for you. Just pray and trust in God and His Son JESUS CHRIST.

There are many things that separate us from God. These are: worshipping yourself(body image), money, careers, cars, property etc………. don’t get me wrong, God doesn’t want you to be poor. God wants you to have what is best for you and for you to focus on the things that are good and praiseworthy.

I don’t think I’m alone here, I believe we all go through doubt and fear (see other blog post (FEAR) but I always find my way when I think of myself as a victor because I know who I am in Christ. Praying to Jesus who knows me better than anyone else, even better than myself,  can steer me in the right direction and towards the best possible solution.

You need to know who you are in Christ and stand firm. Speak up for God. Pray and ask Him and let Him work out your problems through the Holy Spirit who can transform your world.


You can ask Jesus what it is that He wants you to do, the answer may come in the form of a feeling, idea, thought, memory or the words to a song etc. It’s the first thing that comes to mind and don’t over analyse it, remember that Jesus has all the answers. Jesus was there when you were born, when you were growing up and He knows the heart that God the Father gave you. BE VICTORIOUS NOT A VICTIM!!




Acronym for FEAR……………………………..







The enemy wants to keep you in fear and away from God. The more the fear the more lonely you become and that’s exactly where the enemy wants to keep you. When you pray God aligns the heavenlies and sets the wheel in motion. You need to wait, trust and allow God to work in your favour. The answer may come to you in different forms, perhaps not what you would have expected but God wants the best for you and His way is better than you could have ever imagined.

This prayer from St. Teresa of Avila has been of great help to me.
