Unconditional Love

Posted by Marvin Harrell , 31 March 2010 · 943 views

Well we did it. After mourning the passing of our beloved family dog of 10 years last November, we went online and found another dog. We adopted her from an animal rescue group in Divide, Colorado, and she fits in very well!

What I really love is how she loves us. We have had her for less than a week, but the way she responds when she sees us is nothing short of "eternal" if that can be said. I won't begin to try to dissect the theology of animal souls, but I can testify to this...when our dog sees me, there is nothing stopping her from fully enjoying me and I her.

Enjoying just me. Not the food I bring, not the toys we play with, but the simple action of me being with her...echoes of a greater love.

God, may I have the joy of being with you that my dog has of being with me...and then some.

I am not an animal person at all but that IS the essence of love. Loving the person not the gifts.

So do you believe animals have souls? Or is that a whole nother entry? :-)
