Love Endures All Things

Once upon a time, The Dingo was having a very bad day. His usual morning walk was disrupted by a spontaneous thunderstorm. Soaked to the bone, he made his way back home, but soon he was going to find out that the thunderstorm was only the first of many problems that this day had in store for him.

After changing out of his wet clothes, he decided to tidy up a bit around the house and discovered some overdue bills that had fallen behind the couch. The Dingo was never late on his payments so he jumped to address the issue at hand. He tried to ignore the phone which kept ringing off the hook as he silently pondered the amount of late fees he would be accruing for this unfortunate oversight.

All of a sudden, there was a flash of lightening and a huge clap of thunder that not only spooked The Dingo, but it also spooked the cat and next thing you know, the cat is on top of The Dingo’s head! After catching his breath, he turned around only to find out that little Max accidentally spilled his drink on the recently cleaned carpet.

The Dingo didn’t know how much more he could take and he felt his blood boiling with frustration. It’s as if the whole world had turned itself against him. But, then he remembered something very important: Love Endures All Things.

He looked up the word “endure” in the Merriam-Webster dictionary and he found these definitions:

    • to undergo (as a hardship) especially without giving in:
    • to regard with acceptance or tolerance

According to this definition, if love endures all things that means it doesn’t give in, it’s accepting and tolerant no matter what the circumstance. The Dingo decided at that very moment that he would endure!

He brushed aside all his frustration and embraced the day. All of a sudden all the drama didn’t seem so bad. He looked forward to clear skies so he could finish his walk; he called the bill collectors and explained the situation and they happily waived his late fees; to help the cat relax and get through the rest of the storm without incident, he turned on some classical music to help drown out the sounds of thunder; and finally, he helped little Max clean up the spilled milk and the carpet looked as good as new.

The Dingo purposed to make the best out of the rest of his day. He proceeded to plan some fun & creative rainy day activities with little Max which included baking cookies, playing an exciting game of charades, and finally, reading a good mystery together.

Once again, The Dingo saved the day with his quick thinking and his overwhelming desire to always walk in love 🙂

Dingo Love: Patient

Love is Patient

Once upon a time, The Dingo noticed he was losing his patience in different ways which resulted in fussy and rude behavior and he did not like this one bit.

The Dingo vowed to always walk in love as best as he knew how towards everybody and losing his patience definitely was not a good example of this. If there was one thing The Dingo knew, it was that “Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it”* and it was definitely time to do something about it.

First, he started by looking up the word “patient” in the Merriam-Webster dictionary and found this definition:

  • able to remain calm and not become annoyed when waiting for a long time or when dealing with problems or difficult people
  • done in a careful way over a long period of time without hurrying

After reading this The Dingo realized that being patient means more than just thinking about himself, it means thinking about others. It’s thinking about how a rude and fussy attitude could make someone else feel bad, it’s recognizing that others are worth our time and investment and most of all it’s about showing the same love and patience that we would expect under similar circumstances.

As you can see from the illustration above, The Dingo decided to practice patience with his inquisitive little guy by reading him a book called “How to Love Cats.” It’s important for The Dingo to not only talk the talk but he also knows the importance of walking the walk because you never know who’s watching and learning from your example.

Walk in Love.
