I'm not all that big of a dog man really, but I've been finding doggie things all over the place of late. Maybe God is telling me something ... hmmmmmm
Anyways, had to share this one.
Wagging his tail and waving his paws
With squeaky ball held in his jaws
With no thought of what's gone before
My puppy greets me at the door.
As I get home from night shift job
I'm bothered by this little slob
Who steals my socks and eats my shoes
Ignoring all his rawhide chews.
Yet for all the scolding, training,
Short nights sleep and entertaining
And all the trouble he gets in
he doesn't care, it's not a sin!
As many times as I've scolded him
Or smacked his behind for being dim
The puppy loves me anyway
He doesn't care, he's here to stay.
Someday I hope to be worthy you see,
Of the faith that my dog has in me.
I wonder sometimes if I were him
Would I be a good puppy?
Sometimes I think that God gave us dogs
As a lesson in attitude, because they're always there
We people can be crabby, ungrateful, or rude
But if you have a dog, odds are he doesn't care.
Some days I wonder, when I'm bored
If Jesus did walk through my door
Would I take the time to notice during my busy day?
I know my dog would, He'd probably wanna play.
Lord I ask with this humble prayer
As I watch my Schnauzer sleep on the chair
With all the faith that the world is right
Now that I'm home from working tonight
Lord, Make me more like my dog
More loyal, more loving, more fun to be
More accepting of neighbors, whoever they be.
More willing to forgive, have faith, be free.
I think there's a reason that "Dog" is "God" spelled backwards, you see.
