Abbey is short for Abigail a woman from a story in 1 Samuel, 25. We are told "The woman was intelligent and attractive." But her real beauty was that she saved David, the Lord's anointed, from taking her husband's life. In return David said to Abigail: "Blessed is the LORD, the God of Israel, who sent you to meet me today. Blessed is your good judgment and blessed are you yourself. Today you have prevented me from shedding blood and rescuing myself with my own hand." [v.32-33]
I hope that this dog will help me heed the Lord's direction and depend more and more on the Heavenly wisdom.
