He’s a good ol’ dog.

Have you read Genesis 1 lately? My
dog had surgery this week so I went
to the Scriptures (per usual) to help put things into
because you know, he’s
just a dog like
elephants are just oafs and
manatees and whales and blowfish
and caterpillars and lizards with wings
and yellow birds
blue birds
red birds are just, well,
you know.
how the Creator went wild, ape, some might say
when He got His eternal noggin’ goin’ and formed and shaped and painted
and spun all these Creatures
then breathed life into their lungs
same as ours.
Now don’t get me wrong, man’s
in charge. Humans
trump all. But when I look in Jax’s big ol’ chocolate chip eyes at the end
of a cruel day of living and dying and
the inhumane drama of
small town
I know why Abba knows
a dog like Jaxson is
very, very


God looked over everything he had made; it was so good, so very good! It was evening, it was morning—Day Six.
Genesis 1:31 (TMV)

    1. This comes at a time when my heart is so very heavy. On Monday the Vet told us that the most humane and compassionate thing we could do was put our “Good ole dog Dopey” to sleep. At 13 he is riddled with cancer and in constant pain. It will be hard to say goodbye to my dear friend I will remember what I read here today and reflect on Genesis 1:31! Thank you for posting this, I needed to read this today!
