Last night my dog was barking. He just kept going. A neighbor dog was barking too. Communication? I don't know. It seemed like something was bothering him. I laid there and waited. More barking. He never tired a bit. I got up and turned on the outside light. Nothing I could see. Looked at the clock to learn it was almost midnight. Laid back down. Barking continued uninterrupted. I got up again, opened the door, and called the dog. He came around, but went right back. I laid down. More barking. I go out a shout at the dog. (Two kinds of barking now). The dog remains agitated. I close the door and lay down thinking about how animals have a sense we don't have. Is there some doom pending. I open my eyes again and realize that the window appears clearly to me. I look around the room, and everything is clear. MY CONTACT LENSES ARE STILL IN MY EYES. I forgot to take them out before I laid down to sleep! I got up immediately and removed them. When I laid down, the barking was finished (except for one short blast about three minutes later.)
Did Scooby know something? Had I slept through the night, I might not be able to type these words this morning. Some would hear this story and say, "Dogs are amazing." I say, "God is amazing. He uses all things to bless those who honor Him."
I'm thankful to God that Scooby disrupted my sleep last night. What is annoying you?
