A Gentle Whisper

14 Oct

BongoI can’t spell but my person told me that Dog spelled backwards is God. I don’t know what that means. Maybe it means that I’m the opposite of God, my thoughts about God are backwards (not sure that I have any), or that I need God? I think I do need God, but I don’t know how to go about finding Him. I thought maybe I’d turn some God thoughts into dog thoughts and see what happens.

The Lord said, “Go stand in your living room in the presence of the Lord, for the Lord is about to pass by.” Then a great and powerful vacuum cleaner tore through the living room and pushed my toys out of the way, but the Lord was not in the vacuum cleaner. After the vacuum cleaner came rain and hail beating down on the roof, but the Lord was not in the rain and hail. After the rain and hail came very loud thunder, but the Lord was not in the thunder. After the thunder came a gentle whisper.

I was barked out from the vacuum cleaner and shaking from the thunder and other noisy things. Gentle whispers are nice, but I’m still not sure if God talks to dogs. I kind of stole that story and my person says I have to tell you where I got it from so I’m not guilty of plagiarism (what’s that?). Okay, here goes. The story came from I Kings 19:11-12 in the Bible. I just changed a few words so it made more sense to me.

This has been hard on my brain. I think I’ll go to sleep now. I hope that gentle whisker doesn’t tickle me.

    Apparently Bongo, there are 40 references to dogs in the Bible.

      Bassa, that’s so cool that we’re in the Bible so much. God must really love us – but God also seems to know that we’ll eat everybody’s leftovers.
