Love Observed


Cars whizz by

On the fly

To where?

Is their home here?

What’s the rush?

Says the drying rose bush

Squirrels, though, they understand

The clawing of hands


For acorns

If their mouths are empty, it might as well be thorns

Often I see

An elderly lady

Stepping intently

Holding the leash gently

If she stops to adjust

Her companion just

Takes a seat


Shows patience without any bribe or treat

The beauty between the two,

Neither walks ahead or through

Without the other

Hearts tethered

This worn woman

And her pawfect best friend


Therefore do not let what you know is good be spoken of as evil. For the kingdom of God is not matter of eating and drinking, but of righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit, because anyone who serves Christ in this way is pleasing to God and receives human approval (Romans 14:16-18).


Thank you for joining me here tonight. Have a wonder-full weekend!

In Christ, Julie
