When my dogs jump in my lap and lavish me with kisses, I truly feel MUCH LOVED! I guess they think I’m pretty awesome and lovable! Well, I don’t know about that LOL! I have my down days, like everyone else. But experiencing their unconditional love does inspire me to strive to live up to that love. So that is my New Years Goal—to be the kind of person my dog already thinks I am!
When I first read the following poem, “Gift To Jesus— A Dog”, I was quickly drawn to the delightful idea of giving a gift to Jesus, and that gift being a dog! The Bible tells us that Jesus faced many hard and lonely days while on earth. He was born, ultimately to suffer and die for the sins of the world. Dogs are perfect companions for hard and lonely days, or any day for that matter. Their comforting presence is like a healing balm. I can certainly attest to that, especially during these tough times we’re living in, with the pandemic and lockdowns! As I write this, my beloved dog is by my side, looking at me with his adoring eyes, while offering his unwavering friendship.
Join with me in imagining a very special gift to Jesus, with this heart-warming poem by Jane Sears.
Each day they offer incredible wisdom and inspirational life lessons, of which I am truly grateful. This poem below, by an unknown author, beautifully captures many of the amazing life lessons learned from our beloved dogs. Whoever wrote it must have had a very special relationship with their dog!
In a world that often seems cold and unkind, I pray this simple poem will help us refocus on some of the more important and simpler things in life.
