A Georgia Welcome ~

We lost our sweet Micah, my Blue Merle Sheltie in early March.  It was a hard loss.  She truly was God’s provision to me, and they were bright, full years of love and companionship that taught me so much about God’s love and faithfulness… oh, if only we would turn to God the way a dog turns to us to meet their every need without fear!  Anyway, we (especially me!) found living without a dog really… strange.  I didn’t think we’d get another, but here she is!  “Georgia” came home to live with us last Sunday afternoon.  She is 8 weeks old, and my husband is ‘over-the-moon’ for her!  A good thing, for sure.  They are fast becoming buddies.  I found this poem I had written in a journal over 20 years ago, so I thought I would share it, as I was reciting it to Brian…

You can’t buy loyalty, they say.
We bought it though, the other day;
You can’t buy friendship, tried and true,
But just the same, we bought that too.

We made our bid, and on the spot
Bought love and faith and a whole job lot

Of happiness, so all in all
The purchase price was pretty small

We bought a single trusting heart,That gave devotion from the start

If you think these things are not for sale,Buy a brown-blue eye
puppy with a wagging tail.

 She’s definitely making herself at home, and we couldn’t be more delighted.  Welcome Home Miss Georgia!

  6. Georgia looks like a real heart stealer!!! Is she a Blue Merle Sheltie? She's beautiful!!!! Your poem is so true – lovely! I have learned more about how to be a daughter, mother, sister, aunt, friend, and Christian from my kitties and puppies than from anyone!
