The heat broke. The humidity gone. A nice slight breeze blowing over my skin.

Just me, the dog, and God.

Everything felt more beautiful than the word ‘beautiful’ can describe.

The way the setting sun played with the tops of the tree’s, and the depth and glory of the pinkish orange clouds danced in my eyes.

I felt like a newborn child taking in the magnificence around me for the first time.

Every few minutes I glanced down at my 9 year old dog, making sure he was keeping up with my pace, and enjoying the moments with him.

Not too many more years left with the old guy I suspect.

Its nights like these that I wonder if God looks down at all that he has created and smiles to himself. If it still brings him immense joy. If he gets lost in the same moments I do as I swim in the glorious beauty around me.

It was the perfect evening thanks to a cool breeze, an old dog, and the glory of God.

  2. We have so much in common. My faithful friend is about 11-13 years old. Not sure exactly since we got her at the Humane Society and she was estimated to be 1-2 years old at that time. I know our time is growing short and I’ll miss her. She’s seen me through a bunch of rough times and I can’t believe she’s survived my 3 boys. Ah man, you’re gonna make me cry. Lovely photo, by the way!
