It is never easy to say goodbye to the animals we have taken into our hearts to be our animal children. However, there is a key that will unlock and free our hearts from even the darkest dungeon of grief and sorrow. that key is gratitude. May grieving hearts take solace here, whether they are missing a human or animal loved one.
Sometimes life’s road is as slippery and confounding as a totally snow covered road in the hills. This is when we must realize that not only can we risk trusting Spirit for direction, but we must! We must be willing to walk through our fears if we are to grow. Fortunately, Christ has already walked this wild wasteland of Earth-Life ahead of us and is there still to guide us…if we are willing to trust.
We all buy into the myth perpetuated by the attitude that spawned the old show tune “You’re Nobody til Somebody Loves You”. The truth is that God loves you more. When we are able to open up to the Love of God and to love all others, but not elevate them to God status or even Hero status, we will find that soft place to land.
