My husband started a cute routine with the dogs awhile back – a prayer before their meals. When the pooches spot him with their food bowls, they know it’s time for dinner, but importantly, it’s time to be silent and listen to what Daddy has to say.
I tried my hand at this concept this week at the beach. Food bowls in hand, I say a few words at each meal. On a couple of occasions, our mini Aussie who knows how to ‘say her prayers’ even bowed her head in reverence.
Today is our last full day at the beach, and I’m a little sad. I found it fitting to speak a gratuitous prayer for all dogs everywhere.
It’s pretty simple. Here’s how it goes –
Dear Heavenly Father,
Thank you for all good (and bad) dogs all over the world.
Protect them in their travels with their owners.
Keep them safe from harm.
Bless their new canine friends,
And the people they’ve met along their journey.
Thank you for happy times at the beach and endless sunsets.
Let them experience new adventures.
Bless this food, and God Bless Brina and Mr. B.
