Ho, Hey…

A few days ago, I was out back, smoking a cigar, with a lot on my mind – contemplating God’s dealings with man and the little ironies of life – when, the irregular barking of a nearby dog, broke my concentration.

…I continued my high and mighty thoughts when, again, the bark disturbed me. “I can’t even pray, God! See you and your haphazard plans!”

I had no choice but to arise from my selfish reverie and attend to the world…

…bark…pause…bark bark…pause…

But then in a delivery of Heavenly humor, I got it! Could this actually be happening?? I jumped up, ran inside, grabbed my guitar and rushed back out. My friend was still performing, and with my help, this:

…bark…pause…bark…pause…

“So, show me family…” bark, bark…

“Or the blood that I will bleed…” bark, bark…

“I don’t know what I did wrong…” bark…

“I don’t know where I belong…” bark…

“…but I can write a song…” bark, bark…

“I belong with you, you belong with me, in my sweet…heart”…baaark, bark…

We harmonized in time for those few measures before my friend lost the beat, but miracles often don’t last long. Nor do we often look for them in our back yards.
