Poetry Party 47: Companion – Shawna R. B. Atteberry
Oct 052010

It’s Poetry Party over at Abbey of the Arts. This week’s theme “Ode to Animal Wisdom” is in honor of the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi, which was on Monday. Many churches (including mine) have pet blessings on the Sunday closest to Francis’ feast. This week’s picture is of the paws of Christine’s doggie, Abbess Petunia.


I hear the soft pad of paws
on the hard wood floor
And know I’m not alone.

Here is a picture of me and my companion, Victoria, doing our favorite Sunday afternoon activity:

Did you know there are only eight verses in the Bible that discourage women from speaking and holding leadership positions in the church? Did you know there are thousands of verses in the Bible that tell the stories of women who were leaders in their homes, towns, and religious circles? Meet the women in the Bible who were religious & civic leaders, business women, & women who challenged both Jesus and Moses in What You Didn’t Learn in Sunday School. What else didn’t you learn in Sunday School? Find out when you buy What You Didn’t Learn in Sunday School: Women Who Didn’t Shut Up & Sit Down from Wipf and Stock Publishers or Amazon.com today.

  1. Thanks so much for your poem and photo Shawna, napping with my sweet dog is one of my favorite activities as well!

    • Thanks for stopping by Christine! I have to say: napping with the pets is the best.
