Phather Phil’s Prayer
|Heavenly Father the desirability rating for tangible stuff is never ending, it is always more. Yet, if we are honest with ourselves, an accounting of what we have, tells us we have enough stuff. What we need is more dedication, gratification, kindness, dependability, compassion, energy and of course to be more humble and more love. So Lord help us with all of these and make us as good as our dogs think we are! Amen|
