Visual: Thinking of buying a pet?

Hey family, With Christmas approaching, some of us are thinking about pets for the kids…or maybe even ourselves. While I admit I am occasionally tempted buy the sheer cuteness of the four-legged variety, the helpful infographic below does not include dog-grooming, kenneling (if you need to go on away), or doggie day care in the event your pooch needs supervision during the day.

Not only is non-punctuality extremely discourteous, it is stressful (for the offender and the offended) and most of all, it shows lack of stewardship with the precious commodity that God entrusts us with. Many times, we just need to manage our time better. In doing some quick research, I ran across a post about tardiness …
