Transparency in the Look of Love…

Looking at my dog, Khloe, I see a sweet, yet intense look in her eyes. She’s looking at me with nothing but adoration, protection, and a clear, unobstructed display LOVE…

Maybe, just maybe, we all should take a ‘pause’ each day to breathe in the transparency of love! The love that God gifted us with, humans and dogs, to love without any surrounding ‘ID’ tags. I’m not speaking of ignoring the differences, but I am speaking of embracing them. Why? Nothing is more defining and superior to God and His unconditional love. We can fuss, debate and argue all day, but God will always see us the same…

I’m finding that we need to think about that more in these extremely unbelievable divisive times, and it starts with searching our souls. Yep, searching for the love that I see in my fur baby’s beautiful marble-like eyes. It comes from her soul. It’s Godly. She simply loves her mommy, transparently—clear, plain and simple. Pupperoni or not, there’s no fog in sight. It’s 100% visibility of a heart that loves. It’s a heart that appreciates first, that she is God’s creation too! Oh….And just like the relationship that she and I have, we can love each other without liking each other all the ‘doggone’ time! Sometimes, we need a little, a lot or forever space! 😘

Believe it not, Khloe and I look quite different (ha), but our hearts are joined by the traits that show The Transparency in the Look of Love. Maybe we should pose this question every now and again, “When you look at me, who do you see?” No harm, no foul…

Peace & Blessings,

Lisa B

    Such a profound message. I definitely understand the pet love. No matter how I feel, Lola is always right there looking at me like “I’m here”. And just like she is here for me when I may have a lonely or sad moment, it resonates the love that God is always here and how He blessed us with pets, whether it’s a cat or dog, it’s His creation!

    I must agree the connection you two have is special. The look she gives you, some mean-mugging, her body language and that “not today” look and walk. Beautiful indeed. I still think that she is possessed…

    I tease you about Khloe because I never owned a pet but I can see how they give unconditional love. I also see the love you have for each other. A love that this world can use during this difficult time. I wish the world as a whole could see “LOVE” through the eyes of pets. Maybe we will be in a better place. Michael and I have talked about obtaining a puppy one day. Not sure when, probably when we retire. We look forward to sharing the bond between a pet and his/her owners. I am sure this pet will teach us more about giving and sharing. Nice post!
