Like God, a Dog is Crazy, Open, Runs-to-You Love
Like God, a Dog is Crazy, Open, Runs-to-You Love
June 7, 2013
This is so lovely, and makes me really miss my Alle. It reminds me of everything she taught me about love and about God. Which is a lot:
I will never be half as loving as Alle was; that much love is a gift of grace, and one I lack. But I can remember my dear, beautiful girl and realize what she taught me about God — the constancy of a love so unconditional; a love that watches as you leave, waits so faithfully and runs to meet you when you return; a love that comforts in illness, consoles in loneliness; a love that is present even as we are lost in our dreams.
Enjoy. Get a tissue.
