Take a walk in Blue Bell Woods listen to the sounds around you, of bird song and bees. Smell the flowers and the scent of Spring in the air. Every year is a new beginning and every day a blessing

The Little Black Dog.....................


by Elizabeth Gardner Reynolds

I wonder if Christ had a little black dog,
All curly and wooly like mine:
With two long silky ears and a nose, round and wet,
And two eyes, brown and tender, that shine.
I am sure, if He had, that that little black dog
Knew, right from the first, He was God;
That he needed no proof that Christ was divine,
And just worshipped the ground where he trod.
I'm afraid that He hadn't, because I have read
How he prayed in the garden, alone;
For all of His friends and disciples had fled
Even Peter, the one called a stone.
And, oh, I am sure that the little black dog,
With a heart so tender and warm,
Would never have left him to suffer alone,
But, creeping right under his arm,
Would have licked the dear fingers, in agony clasped,
And, counting all favors but loss,
When they took him away, would have trotted behind
And Followed Him quite to the Cross.

My little Faithful doggies. We have always had poodles and I have loved them all. So Thank you Poppett, Charlie (not shown) and Bonnie, Buttons, Bambi, Bridget, Bodi, Bijou, Bella and Brea for your devotion and all encompassing love.

Aw Janice. We used to have a Poodle, too. Her name was Sugar and she was SO smart! I loved her to pieces.

I love that poem and have never heard it before. xo Diana
