(June 4, 2001 - July 16, 2010)In Loving Memory of my wonderful dog, Harry...
It seems that so many dog's have left the world during the last month. My friend in Canada recently had to say good-bye to her, Willow; my next door neighbor to her, Sissi; and the lady whose name I don't even know but who walked her chihuahua by my house every day to her little love too. And then there are the cats...so many. And now, unexpectedly, my Harry; the joy of our home.
But although my fingers ache to rub Harry's dear and oh, so sweet smelling head and to have him look at me with those bright loving eyes as they ask me if it's time to play yet, I take total comfort in the follow verse from Revelations:
"And every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying, Blessing, and honour, and glory, and power, be unto him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever. (Revelation 5:13 KJV)
In the words of the Apostle Paul, "O death, where is thy sting?...But thanks be to God which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ." (1 Cor 15:55,57)
I know Harry, as one of God's wonderful creatures, is safe and I know that I will be reunited with him again someday as I will with all the others, both two legged and four, I have loved throughout my journey on earth.
That is one of God's most precious gifts and one all the saints proclaim!
So, yes, Harry... Let's play!
P.S. The best book I have ever read concerning animals and their place in God's Kingdom is Mary Buddemeyer-Porter's WILL I SEE FIDO IN HEAVEN? It is a book I highly recommend to all who have lost an animal they love.
