god dog

Helen Kowalska dog-done turned FIVE!

When god made the earth and sky

the flowers and the trees,

he then made all the animals

the birds, the fish, the trees.

And when at last he’d finished

not one was quite the same

God said, “I’ll walk this earth of mine

and give each one a name.”

And so he traveled far and wide

and everywhere he went,

a little creature followed him

until his strength was spent.

When all were named across the earth

and in the sky and sea,

the little creature said,

“Dear Lord there’s not one left for me.”

Kindly the Father said to him

“I’ve left you till the end.

I’ve turned my own name back to front and call you dog, my friend.”

It’s a terrible flaw of mine.

Admittedly, I never FORGET the special day.

I honestly lift them or their special occasion – such as an anniversary- up in prayer on the appointed day.

However, I do FORGET to send the greeting through snail-mail.



Sometimes even MONTHS Continue reading “mvp”
