Chester loves waiting at the threshold of our front door, for the possibilities it affords:
A chance to bark at something, the ability to warm himself on sunny days or the possibility that someone will take him for a walk.
I like walking across the threshold of a church door, because of the opportunities it brings:
A chance to fellowship with other believers, an avenue to show my love for God through worship and an opportunity to grow in my relationship with Him.
Jesus rejoiced crossing back over the threshold of the grave, by rising from the dead, knowing the accessibility to life it would offer us:
A chance for a brand new life through a restored relationship with God, the privilege of a Spirit-filled life through unrestricted admittance to His presence and the accessibility of eternal life through accepting Christ’s sacrifice for our sins.
Through Jesus, we can cross over the threshold from death to life.
“Very truly I tell you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be judged but has crossed over from death to life.”

Dear sis Sue. .
This was so wonderful blessing after I took my night prayer and will go to sleep. .:) great idea and thought! Blessings and have a great day.
Thank you very much Karina. Sweet dreams!
Sue, I like how you wove the different thresholds together and brought us to the Savior. Chester has the same coloring as my little pooch. Our dog’s favorite place is at the top of the den stairs so he knows when someone is heading to the kitchen. He loves the sound of the fridge opening.
Blessings ~ Wendy ❀
Ha! Smart dog! Thanks Wendy.
