God knows even the sparrows...

Well, it's 3:30 in the morning and I just can't sleep. Patrick can't either. We're thinking so much about our little beagle!!!

My mom called us about 30 mintues ago and told us that Cayman found her way home. Oh, how excited we were to hear the news! We have no clue where she's been for the past 4 days and we have no clue how she found her way home, but she did. Mom said heard Cayman yelp outside their back door (the same door she escaped from!) and when she let her in, mom couldn't hold her tears back...she just couldn't believe that the dog was there. She said that Cayman ran around the house jumping on every piece of furniture as if to say that she was so excited to be home. I think we all truly have faith that God DOES guide and protect His creation - even the smallest, craziest of beagles!

We'll be heading down to Elberton tomorrow to reunite with our dog and are very excited to see her. We had been talking all day yesterday about heading down there with a few hundred fliers to pass out in order to somehow convince ourselves that we did all we could to find her. We had made the decision before we went to bed last night to go and was preparing our hearts that the probability of us finding her was slim, but we just wanted to do SOMETHING. We feel so blessed to now head down there with a sense of excitement that we'll be able to see our pet again.

I'm looking forward to tomorrow! Thanks to all of you for your thoughts, your well wishes, and your prayers for us and for our crazy, crazy dog.

Teresa - we did get back to sleep about an hour and a half later and awoke with Mallory. I'll be here the majority of the morning, so feel free to call anytime. Thanks for the prayers.

Hey again - check your cell phone voice mail when you get a minute. Tried to call the house but no answer. Hope you're having a great day!

WOW! I can't believe it!!! That's wonderful! What a relief! Thanks to the Lord for His mercies to your little dog :-)

Oh that makes me cry too! It's so cool when God does that! She's a smart puppy! (I still like to think that we'll have our dogs with us in Heaven...Josh doesn't agree, but it's a nice thought anyhow).

The prodigal dog returns. Obviously, he squandered all his kibble on riotous living, and he had no other alternative but to return.

Happy for you all.
