SHELTER

‘Cause every time and for all time, I am his shelter – a homeless man to his dog

I have to say there are many things God has allowed me to write that bring a smile to my face and a tug on my heart. But there hasn’t ever been one quite like this “song” of a homeless man to his dog, because it brought a smile not only to my face but also, and most importantly, to my heart.

I don’t know who you are, my friend with the sign, but I do pray:

You and your best friend found comfort from the swelter,
and that you both found in each other shelter.

Fighting back the tears as I type this….oh oh, too late….I lost the battle of the tears. 😭😭😭🐾🐾🐾❤️❤️❤️

When he cries, I’m his shelter.

When he hopes, I’m his love.

When he calls on me, I rescue him

every time

and for all time.

I save him because I love him.

I carry him because my load is easy.

I just bring it back to him

every time

and for all time.

It’s him in who I delight, day and night.

It’s him in who I treasure in all weather.

I’m his best friend

every time

and for all time.

I’m exactly who he needs me to be.

I’m the faithful one he’s always been looking for.

And he finds me

every time

and for all time.

With me, he will never swelter

‘Cause every time and for all time, I am his

shelter.

–A song from a homeless man to his dog
