Opportunity to console God.

How can that be? Unchangeable.

Consolation in His Sacred humanity. Christ transcends time & space.

Jesus knew the thoughts of all of humanity not just those in his time frame due to His Divinity.

Opportunity to say thank you and talk to You about the dog going to the vet, big and small.

Seeing Christ in everything, waking up to awareness within all things. Allow transform to see this by grace.

Recognizing Christ in the Psalms. Have to have the glasses and vision to see.
