Coach Martin

May 4, 2021

Good people are good to their animals;
    the “good-hearted” bad people kick and abuse them.

Proverbs 12:10

I have a friend who calls her dog her Life Coach, and I know exactly what she means.

Not that Martin, the almost ten year old puppy who lets us live with him, imparts treasures of wisdom or asks penetrating questions or has a perfect list of Seven Ways to Whatever…but because of what I can learn when I’m with him.

A recent walk with him taught me to slow down, then to stop, and to notice something we’d walked by for a couple of years.

About thirty seconds into the experience, he glanced up at me as if to be sure I was participating. I was.

Next thing I knew, he was ready to move on but I wasn’t.

My friend who calls her dog her Life Coach? Thinking like that brings unexpected life into our daily lives.

Check out Proverbs 12:10 and Psalm 8 and let’s live into what they say.

And let’s be more grateful.
