|Kerryn with Snowbell|
There's not really much that I can say as a preface to this poem. Perfection is in the eye of the beholder and our idea of perfection is certainly not God's idea of it.
Here's Snowbell, our perfect little rescue furgirl, who was born with disabled front paws and was destined to be euthanased before her rescue by my wonderful son, Ross and his just as wonderful fiancee, Kerryn.
What's perfect to and for me, may very well not be so for you and isn't that the way it should be?
Imagine if we all saw perfection the same way? I don't even want to begin to contemplate that scenario...
Side by Side
Before my conception
That I would seek perfection
This life through
He made his selection
When time was due
Orchestrated each rejection
Until there was
In your living life
In my life living
In that place
Side by Side
We are OneSoul
That's beautiful! God led your son to Snowbell. He also doesn't make mistakes.ReplyDelete
Aww, Snowbell is so pretty. And such a lovely poem. And I definitely agree that it's wonderful that one person's view of imperfection is another person's view of extremely interesting.ReplyDelete
Hope you’re having fun with the A to Z challenge,
Bless your son for the rescue of Snowbell whose wounds were lessened by this act of living 'side-by-side' in soul for all that is One.ReplyDelete

What a wonderful poem to start my day. And Snowbell is a doll! I'm an animal lover too and have had many, many rescue animals by my side. I've had one-eyed hamsters, a hamster with diabetes, a hamster with a broken back that I "walked" daily to give him exercise...and so many others. :) These animals need us!ReplyDelete

We are all perfect in our individuality... and it would definitely be boring if we all viewed perfection in the same way...
Nicely worded poem! Very visual!ReplyDelete
