A few of you were kind enough to tell me that I never did say if my dog, Denry, got 'skunked' on our 5:30am walk this past Sunday. I'm glad to report that in a rare act of obedience Denry actually responded to my hysterical, ear-splitting scream.
I did insert a picture of him at 6am on September 5 just after he endured his latest"de-skunking". His expression is very similar to the ones I see in the congregation when I'm preaching. I never really thought of this but I guess some sermons do help us 'de-skunk' so we return to the Lord's presence.
