my dog lays trap-wise across my path
solicitous, he moves out of my way
when I pass by in darkness
moments after I write these words
I trip over my unmoving friend.
yet even this dog reflects Your glory
pleasing in his little way
he who has his care
taking food and pleasure from my hand
giving in return devotion
as should I
Mac used to say:
“A dog can teach a man a lot about loving God”
then going on to enumerate these qualities:
Faithful. Devoted. Adventurous. Reliant. Adoring.
Sometimes I think that if we were a little more like dogs
we’d be a lot more like Christ.
Each New Day A Miracle
