Craig Harrison - Coffee With Jesus

As I sit and have my cup of coffee with Jesus, I looked up and found Francesco, my dog, was sitting on the chair.  It made me think of what a wonderful gift pets are.  They are those special creatures that teach us unconditional love.

When we give praise to God for the blessings in our lives, very seldom do we offer everything to Him, including companions like Francesco.  The way my dog is excited to greet me when I come home, the way he comes to lay his head on my chest when he knows I am sad, when he pushes me to play when I do not feel like playing, all shows me how animals are one of God’s special blessings.

The special thing about Francesco is that he loves me just the way I am, no judgment, no criticism, just unconditional love.  This love mirrors the love that God has for me.  Maybe there is a lot we can learn from the gift of the pet companions that God has given us.  It seems we are always trying to teach our pets new tricks, while they are trying to teach us life lessons.  I cherish these special gifts that God gives me; I give HIM praise for all pets.

Today, I give thanks to God for the gift of Francesco and the many pets I’ve had before.  And today, I think I will watch and learn.  I still haven’t figured out how to roll over and surrender! 

Have a blessed day, and spend some time with your pet
