I gave Stastny the remainder of the peanut butter jar to play with outside while I took my shower. As I was enjoying the shower, I quickly began to worry. Was Stastny okay? Did I close all the gates? What if she got loose and never made her way home…the list went on. In panic mode, I began calling her name, then yelling it. She did not come. I could not understand where she was because she is a very obedient dog and comes on command. I quickly ended my relaxing shower, still calling Stastny. It was not until I noticed that the door was shut that I stopped yelling. I opened the door and there was Stastny wondering what on earth I was yelling at her for.

2. How do you bask in God’s joy and peace without being interrupted by the enemy?
