I had a bit of a moral dilemma with if it is ok to cut up pages of the Bible as art, but I figured God was cool with it. I picked some favorite verses, I think some of the other ladies have gotten inspired to do a similar project of their own. I sense a trend!!

Long before we bought a dog, we knew what we'd name it. Cheesy, I know, but for good reason. One day over a year ago, I was at a book store and I came across the book The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein. It had great reviews and involved two things that Evan loves - cars and dogs. So, I bought it for him. The story is told from the perspective of a very wise dog, Enzo. His owner, a race car driver, named him this because Enzo Anselmo Ferrari was an Italian car driver and entrepreneur, the founder of the Scuderia Ferrari Grand Prix motor racing team, and subsequently of the Ferrari car manufacturer. So we decided we would name our dog Enzo.
Throughout the book, you see that Enzo just "gets it." He does not discriminate due to age, race, or social class. He forgives and loves. I found online the things we can learn from dogs, and I've included it below. As I stare at my Enzo peacefully napping at the foot of the stairs awaiting Evan's return home from work, I contemplate how I can learn a thing or two from him.

On Saturday night during a stay with Enzo's dog cousins in Ohio, Enzo lept from the stairs and landed weird on his back left leg. After a visit to the emergency vet, the X ray showed that he fractured his tibia. We visited our vet in Blacksburg yesterday and she said, surgery is needed. So, Enzo is now at the Vet School at Virginia Tech in preparation for his surgery. He'll have 3 pins put in his leg, and then the big challenge will be to keep him off of it for 4-6 weeks. This will be tough seeing as he is 4 months old and all he wants to do is play. He's in good hands, and so I'm confident that everything will go well.
