A side bar moment......

Today I sent info to Lil Deb about an email address for Pastor Dave. You know I just had to check out the church website. I found this little tidbit that caught my eye and made me cry. Everything you see below was copied right from the post.



The Rainbow Bridge


There is a bridge connecting Heaven and Earth. It is called the Rainbow Bridge because of its many colors. Just this side of the Rainbow Bridge there is a land of meadows, hills, and valleys with lush green grass.



When a beloved pet dies, the pet goes to this place. There is always food and water and warm spring weather. The old and frail animals are young again. Those who are maimed are made whole again. They play all day with each other.



There is only one thing missing. There are not with their special person who loved them on Earth. So each day they run and play until the day comes when one suddenly stops playing and looks up! The eyes are staring! And this one suddenly runs from the group!



You have been seen, and when and your special friend meet, you take him or her in your arms and embrace. Your face is kissed again and again and you look once more into the eyes of your trusting pet.



Then you cross the Rainbow Bridge together, never again to be separated.



This is my addition.



Among the pets playing with each other are those that never knew a loving human friend on Earth. The abandoned and abused. They look with envy at those that run to greet their loving human friend. But, the Lord in his wisdom have seen them and cares for them.



Among the humans coming to cross the Rainbow Bridge are children who died young and never knew the love of a trusting pet and who are lonely and afraid. As each of them approach the Rainbow Bridge, one of the abandoned or abused pets sees them and comes up to them. Hestiantly, they sniff the child who reaches out their hand in friendship and love. Then, they kiss the child and the child takes them into their arms, returning their love and trust. Together, the child and their new best friend cross the Rainbow Bridge never to be separated.

The vet sent this to Emily (my daughter) when her cat died. We both sat and cried.
