Dumped, Unwanted, Abandoned


“We’ve all been dumped,” I told my very special dogs tonight after finding little blind Glory smooshed into a too small crate with two-footed Winnie. I didn’t put them in the crate; they went in there to keep each other company, as they often do. “You’ve been dumped, Glory,” I told her. “And you Jake. And Winnie.” Then it really dawned on me as I looked around the room at the miracle dogs in my life after a day of endless rain and thunderstorms. All cooped up together. “Every single one of us has been abandoned. And I am so blessed to have you all.” Blind, deaf, very senior, three-legged, two-footed, embedded collar, degloved toes, missing half a body of hair, and more. Even the healthy ones in my care were abandoned in one way or another, headed for gas chambers, lethal injections, or simply dumped off in someone’s yard, anybody’s life. Just like me.

Several days ago, newly arrived in South Carolina, I received a summons from my husband. For divorce. Dumped. Abandoned. Neglected. Oh, but how blessed we all are. Why? These dogs were saved by God. And, as for me, I have been adopted. Into God’s Kingdom, through faith in Jesus Christ. Into His care. Into His love. Into His heart. Even though my flesh seared today at the reminder of my husband’s choices, the Lord reminded me to do as He does – to love. Just like He does. And His love forgives. His love has mercy. His love heals. His love prevails.

My prayer tonight? That His love would so fill me up, that it would so push out all the darkness, that I would love and forgive like He does. Just like my Father. My dear, heavenly Father who tonight, as always, loves me so much that He would not leave me unwanted. He would even go so far as to give me love and compassion for an unwanted world. To love like He does. I want to be just like my Father. He is love. Through faith in His Son Jesus, through study of His Word, by the leading of God’s Holy Spirit, I can learn to love just like He does. To love a world in need – of Him.

“To the praise of the glory of His grace, wherein He hath made us accepted in the beloved (Eph 1:6 KJV).”

“Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called teh sons of God: thefeore the world knoweth us not, because it knew Him not (1 John 3:1 KJV).”

“For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear, but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father (Romans 8:15 KJV).”
