Have we lost God's hedge of protection?
Have we lost God's hedge of protection?

One of my favorite pastors once told me, "The Holy Spirit is a gentleman. He does not go where he is not wanted." I wonder if this statement could be applied to what's happening in our country today.
There is no doubt that God placed a hedge of protection around this country for many years. However, I'm beginning to think it's gone now. We have pushed him out of our schools, our county courthouses, and in some case, out of our churches.

Nash County Animal Friends' Notebook
Nash County Animal Friends' Notebook

DUMPED DOGS, NOT STRAYS. When someone doesn't want a dog, they should either find another home or a Rescue or take to the Shelter where we will work to find an Adopter or a Rescue. However, some people are lazy and literally don't care. That includes some breeders (backyard or otherwise), who are in it for the money and when the puppies get too big and they can't sell them or the parents get old or sick... some of them will dump them.
