God, yesterday I saw my dog drinking from its
Water bowl. It was drinking wildly and with
Absolute abandon, a dog's abandon. It was
Splashing. It was soaking the floor. Water was
Spattering on its face. It was drinking deeply and
Freely and, again, without abandon...with
Absolute abandon, a dog's abandon. Lord, I want to
Drink of your presence that way. Freely. Deeply.
With absolute abandon, a dog's abandon.
I want to drink wildly. Get your presence all over me.
Get it everywhere. To leave traces on every
Corner of the room. Will you let me do this, God?
Please. Let me drink of your loving presence with a
Dog's abandon. It is my heart-mind's plea. Amen.
