There is a season (a time appointed) for everything and a time for every delight and event or purpose under heaven— A time to be born and a time to die; A time to plant and a time to uproot what is planted. A time to kill and a time to heal;
A little over a month ago, our sweet 11-year-old beagle/dachshund dog passed away peacefully in her sleep. She had a heart condition and we knew it would happen eventually. Losing sweet Abigail was definitely mich harder than I thought it would be. I shared the following with my children during that time.
The kids are taking it kinda hard about Abigail passing away. She really was a special dog…so happy and full of joy…not a mean bone in her body. As I was talking with them about it all, the following verses came to mind to share with them. I told them how much God loves all of his creation including Abigail and how He cared about her life and how much he cares about their lives and what they are feeling. I also reminded them about Abby’s joy and how she would want them to remember her that way. I know their smiles will return soon…they are doing a great job keeping their heads up. Anyway, just wanted to share in case anyone else needs these verses today. You have innate value to your Heavenly Father. 💕🙌🏻💕
I’m so thankful seasons do change. Abigail will remain in our hearts forever, however now we have some renewed happiness which came with the arrival of a new puppy one week ago. If you’ve read my previous post about my love of goldendoodles you’ll know just how much I adore this dog breed. The Lord is so sweet in the way He cares for us! Not only did He provide our family with a new puppy, but He gave me my heart’s desire for a GOLDENDOODLE!!
My son named the puppy Asher which means happy and blessed. I’m so thankful God allows seasons to change in our lives. The more difficult times cause us to appreciate the sweet blessings in the next season so much more!
I’m praying for you today in whatever season you are in. I pray God will reveal Himself to you and continue to do so in each and every season.
